The rising and falling prospects of MLB Pipeline’s Houston Astros Top-30 prospects list.
This Spring, the Houston Astros will see some of their top prospects in action. Some of them are in major league camp with some former Stros top prospects. Some of the names to highlight these lists over the years have been Jarred Cosart, Jon Singleton, Carlos Correa, and Alex Bregman. Three of those names are still in the Astros organization, but Cosart didn’t live up to expectations in Houston.
Singleton could fit into the same mold, but the book on him is not closed on him yet. He is unlikely to make the opening day roster, and he was removed from the 40-man roster. Prospects are just prospects until they become big leaguers. However, to make this list is a great honor for any of these thirty guys.
There were some that moved up and some that moved down. Daz Cameron took a step back in 2016, but Ramon Laureano went forward. Jim Callis has come on Talking Stros, and we sang the praises of Laureano, and he moves up in the rankings. He played his way into that position, and I hope he improves more. Let’s take a look at the players who stayed the same, moved up, or moved down.
