Yesterday Scout.com released their 2012 Minor League Baseball Top Prospect Rankings. The Detroit Tigers placed two of their top prospects in their annual list. Tigers top pitching prospect Jacob Turner was labeled a five star prospect, coming in at #11 on the list. Third baseman prospect Nick Castellanos checked in as a four star prospect, ranked 69th overall.
Turner and Castellanos checked in as the Tigers top two prospects in our 2012 MCB Detroit Tigers Top 50 Prospects list last month. While Castellanos was omitted, Fansided’s MiLB site SeedlingsToStars did recently tabbed Turner 6th best prospect in baseball in their first annual Top 100 list.
Congrats to both Turner and Castellanos and good luck to them this upcoming season.
