When scouts see that a Class A shortstop has a lot of errors, they don't really get too worried. After all, there are a lot of successful big league shortstops who had plenty of minor league errors. The logic is that shortstops with good range get to more balls to make errors on, and that the infield of the average Class A ballpark doesn't provide as true a hop as big league ballparks.
But it's still useful to take a look at minor league error leaderboard, especially since a little querying in our database will give us how exactly they committed the errors. Here's a look at the Top 10 in the minors in errors committed this year, along with a look at how they committed those errors.
