heres the giants top 20 prospects according to John Sickels who follows this stuff for a profession.
Gillaspie didn't even make that Top 20.
I wasnt impressed by this ranking at all. Jarrett Parker #7? Gillaspie not in top 20? I dont think so.
Well he does just swing through every organization really quickly in his preliminary rankings, but Sickels is generally pretty good with his rankings.
I think his list is okay...Parker looks to be a little high, Chuckie Jones, Rafael Rodriguez and Hector Sanchez have to be in the top 20 in my opinion. As for Gillaspie...I'm not too impressed, he doesn't make my top 20 either.
Those 3 havent done anything yet in my opinion to warrant being top 20 choices. As for Gillaspie.. well he did lead the Arizona Fall League in Homers and had a .947 OPS. Granted this is a small sample but its also against top competition. I have to believe the Giants consider him a top 20 prospect or they wouldnt have him on their 40 man roster.
