Now that we've released the 2012 Top 100 Prospects list, we're also going to back and look at how the demographics of this year's list compare to past years. First up, a look at how the position breakdown compared to Top 100s over the past 10 years (from 2002-2012).
|Catchers:||High||12 (2010, 2009)||Third Basemen||High||12 (2012)|
|Low||5 (2007, 2004, 2003)||Low||5 (2004)|
|First Baseman||High||10 (2009, 2003)||Outfielders||High||26 (2007)|
|Low||3 (2012, 2007)||Low||10 (2011)|
|Second Basemen||High||5 (2004)||Lefthanded Pitchers||High||17 (2011)|
|Low||1 (2007, 2010)||Low||10 (2012)|
|Shortstops||High||12 (2011)||Righthanded pitchers||High||40 (2003)|
|Low||5 (2008)||Low||26 (2009)|
This is a pretty good reminder that it's tough to make the list as a second baseman. And while 35 righthanded pitchers may seem like a lot (more than 1/3 of the list) it's right in line with the yearly average. This year was a very good year for third baseman and shortstops however.
