Five players from the Lookouts made Baseball America's Southern League top 20, lead by Allen Webster at #10. The other players on the list were Alfredo Silverio (#12), Nathan Eovaldi (#13), Chris Withrow (#18), and Shawn Tolleson (#20).
The surprise for me was seeing Silverio at #12 ahead of guys like Eovaldi and Withrow. I know that this isn't really a true ranking so when BA's offseason prospect listing comes out I doubt these Dodger players will be in the same order, but even still having Silverio #12 on this list was unexpected. I'm glad Tolleson made the list and I think he deserves it based on the crazy numbers he put up all year.
Here are some quotes from the scouting reports:
Webster - "With an easy delivery, Webster pitches off a fastball that ranges from 90-95 mph. It's a power sinker that he uses to get ahead in the count or induce groundballs, though he's still refining his fastball command."
Silverio - "Though he's already 24, Silverio boosted his prospect stock this year as he combined quality production with the potential for five average or better tools... He doesn't draw a high number of walks but gets good marks for his pitch recognition and approach. He takes quality at-bats and doesn't put himself into many bad counts by chasing out of the strike zone, combining good plate coverage with an understanding of his own hitting zone."
Eovaldi - "Eovaldi throws from a high three-quarters slot, working at 92-95 mph and peaking at 98 with his fastball, which shows occasional sink and late life. He threw a curveball in the past, but he struggled to throw it consistently for strikes and switched to a slider last year during instructional league."
Withrow - "Withrow has plenty of arm strength, with a sinking fastball that sits at 90-94 mph and can touch 98. His curveball shows flashes of becoming a plus pitch with hard downward bite. Both his fastball and curveball are inconsistent and can flatten out, and his fringy changeup is a distant No. 3 pitch for now."
Tolleson - "Tolleson operates at 91-93 mph with his fastball and backs it up with an average slider with good bite and a cutter than can give hitters fits. He mixes his pitches well, throws them for strikes and all of his pitches have good movement, a combination that keep opponents off balance."
