The Golden Sombrero’s Top 50 Prospects Recap: #20 – #30

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 20-30:

20. Freddie Freeman, 1B, Atlanta Braves

21. John Lamb, LHP, Kansas City Royals

22. Mike Minor, LHP, Atlanta Braves

23. Manny Machado, SS, Baltimore Orioles

24. Mike Montgomery, LHP, Kansas City Royals

25. Zachary Britton, LHP, Baltimore Orioles

26. Jason Kipnis, 2B, Cleveland Indians

27. Devin Mesoraco, C, Cincinnati Reds

28. Martin Perez, LHP, Texas Rangers

29. Brett Lawrie, 2B, Toronto Blue Jays

30. Lonnie Chisenhall, 3B, Cleveland Indians
