The Golden Sombrero’s Top 50 Prospects Recap: #40 – #50

Shortly after the turn of the New Year, we began unveiling our Top 50 Prospects for the 2011 season.  The list is the product of hours of deliberation between Dee and myself, and is far from your average, cookie-cutter top prospect list.

Our rankings are based on a number of criteria such as ceiling, refinement, age, level, performance, and health thus far.  Positional scarcity and chances to stay at a premium position in the Major Leagues carries some weight too, but is a lesser component. No pitcher rankings are based off of potential as relievers because no top arm ends up in the bullpen unless the front office decides to lose its mind.

In case you have missed any player on our list, here is a recap of 40-50:

50. Chris Dwyer, LHP, Kansas City Royals

49. J.P. Arencibia, C/DH, Toronto Blue Jays

48. Aaron Hicks, OF, Minnesota Twins

47. Jose Iglesias, SS, Boston Red Sox

46. Nick Castellanos, 3B, Detroit Tigers

45. Hank Conger, C, Los Angeles Angels

44. Nolan Arenado, 3B, Colorado Rockies

43. Brett Jackson, OF, Chicago Cubs

42. Matt Dominguez, 3B, Florida Marlins

41. Zach Lee, RHP, Los Angeles Dodgers

40. Grant Green, SS, Oakland Athletics
