Breaking Down the 1990-97 Drafts

Jim Callis compiled a database of the 2,115 players who signed out of the first 10 rounds of the 1990-97 drafts, figuring we've had time to get a good read on the careers of all of those players. We've noted where they came from (college, high school, junior college) and how they've fared. Draft-and-follows who signed the following year were considered where they were drafted from (high school or junior college). Players' careers were graded because the value of a player who becomes an all-star is clearly different than that of a player who gets one big league at-bat, even though both can be called big leaguers. Using Angels draftees as examples, the categories are: flops who fell short of big leagues (Pete Janicki), players who got a cup of coffee (Phil Leftwich), fringe big leaguers (Jorge Fabregas), big league regulars (Brian Anderson), good big league regulars (Garret Anderson) and stars (Troy Percival). The chart includes players who made their major league debuts through May 4th, 2003.
