Midseason Baseball America Top 50
Jesus Montero goes from 3 to 8, Manny Banuelos goes from 41 to 13, Dellin Betances goes from 43 to 26, and Gary Sanchez goes from 30 to off the list.
Good for baseball america for recognizing that Betances and Banuelos have not decreased their stock with their performances this season, but have actually improved their stock by proving they can handle AA hitters. As for Jesus Montero, he's a second half player. We'll see where he stands by the end of the season.
Also, notably, Arodys Vizcaino is now at 16. Imagine, we could have 3 pitchers in the top 25 right now if we didn't decide that we needed to trade for Javier Vazquez. I hated that trade then, and I hate it even more now.
