Walker Named Top MWL Prospect by Baseball America

It’s been a while since I’ve had anything to post on here except predictions that turn out to be wrong.  Clinton LumberKings’ right-hander Taijuan Walker has been named the Midwest League’s top prospect by Baseball America editor Jim Callis on his annual Top 20 list.

Walker and left-hander James Paxton (#8) both show up on the list.  Walker edged out Dayton shortstop Billy Hamilton (#2) and Midwest League MVP/Prospect of the Year Rymer Liriano (#5) of Fort Wayne.  Check out the full list here:  http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/prospects/rankings/league-top-20-prospects/2012/2612401.html.

For bonus content, here’s my interviews with Walker and Paxton from the 2011 season:

Things have been extra-quiet here at The LumberBlog as I’ve been wrapping up the 2011 Final Report and Bios.  I should have that out for viewing both here and on LumberKings.com in the next few days.

Just curious, any guys that didn’t end up on the list that you were surprised didn’t make it?
