A Look at Twinkie Town's Top 50 Prospects for 2011

Now that I've finally updated our Top 50 prospects list, here are just a few quick notes on how this year's fifty broke down.

  • The oldest prospect on our list this season is relief pitcher Anthony Slama, whose 2011 age is 27.
  • The youngest player, meanwhile, is 17-year old infielder Jorge Polanco.
  • The average age of our fifty prospects is 22.5.

Here's a fun comparison to last year's top fifty.

Year C Age IF Age OF Age RHP Age LHP Age
2010 3 21.2 14 22.6 8 20.8 22 22.7 3 21.3
2011 2 23.5 10 22.1 11 21.9 21 22.7 6 23.2

And here's your oldest and youngest comparison by position.
