Minor League Ball - Arizona Diamondbacks Top 20 Prospects for 2013


1) Tyler Skaggs, LHP, Grade A-: Development of Skaggs probably made it psychologically easier to trade Trevor Bauer. Skaggs has nothing left to prove in the minors and looks like he can be a mid-rotation guy at least and possibly a genuine anchor once he gets more experience.

2) Archie Bradley, RHP, Grade A-: His ceiling is even higher than Skagg's but he's further away and has some command issues to resolve first. Even slight improvements with his command will vault him up the ladder quickly. Outstanding fastball/curve combination.

3) Adam Eaton, OF, Grade B: He's not a fluke. Excellent on-base skills with gap power, speed, and impressive defense.

4) Matt Davidson, 3B, Grade B: Making gradual improvements with contact, plate discipline, and defense to go with his already productive power.

5) David Holmberg, LHP, Grade B: Solid workhorse starter in the making, could be ready for a major league trial in the second half. Skaggs, Holmberg, and Pat Corbin is a really nice trio of lefties, and Andrew Chafin is close behind.
