My 2012 MiLB roster predictions

First off, let me note that these predictions are being made using only the guys we currently have in house.  I will probably post another set of predictions after I find out who is retiring, who we signed, and who we let go.  Also I would like to note that you will not see the guys listed below anywhere, that is because I see them possibly getting a spot with the big team, or getting cut/sent to XST(Much like Tanner Roark last year).  If you want to know more about any of the players in this post, LMK and I will do my best to answer your question.  The guys that will not appear on a team in this post are

Lee Hyde, Atahualpa Severino, Craig Stammen, Michael Aubrey, Gregor Blanco, Chris Curran, Jee Frazier, Evan Bronson, Pat McCoy, Garrett Mock, Jimmy Barthmier, Brett Newsome, Randolph Obuder, Brian Peacock, Shane McCatty, Luis Atilano, Carlos Martinez, Orliver Perez, Adam Fox, Chris McConnell, Rob Wort, Jose Lozada, Francisco Soriano, Sam Brown, Wilson Euesbio, Bobby Hanson, Gregory Holt, and Christopher McKenzie  Thanks for reading!

Please let me know your thoughts, and please feel free to ask why I chose to put someone at Potomac, over someone else.  If you want more info on a guy listed, I will tell you all that I know about him.  Thanks for reading!

Update 1: I went through and tried to figure out who is going to be a FA after the season, and added that by their names.  I will try and go in and add current age, average age per team, and rankings by different people, and other various info throught the thread.  Thanks once again for reading  The guys not on a roster that are FA's are

Garrett Mock, Jimmy Barthmier, Brian Peacock, Gregor Blanco, Jeff Frazier, Michael Aubrey, Luis Atilano, Carlos Martinez, Oliver Perez, Miguel Perez, Adam Fox, Chris McConnell, and Buck Coats


Now, how did I come up with these rosters?  The two main things I looked at were age, and stats.  I have not seen most of these guys play, so I couldn't go by that.  The guys not on rosters are guys that I think will not be back in the organization next year, or they will start the year in XST(see Roark, Tanner), as there is not a space for them on the current roster.  for most of the OG's, you can pretty much switch them out with unkown MiLB FA, but im not going to try and predict who Rizzo will sign, and I know a little but about these guys.


Average ages for the leagues

International- 26.6

Eastern- 24.4

Carolina- 22.8

South Atlantic- 21.7


The projected is

Syracuse- 26.76

Harrisburg- 24.08

Potomac- 22.48

Hagerstown- 22.92


Here is Stickles guidelines for age, and what is considered "old"

AAA: Typical Age range is 23-24. Age 25 depends. 26+ is old
AA: 22-23. 24 depends. 25+ is old
High-A: 20-22. 23 depends. 24+ is old
Low-A: 19-21. 22 depends. 23+ is old
Short-A: 19-20. 21/22 for draft year guys only. 22+ is old
GCL: 17-19. 20 for draft year guys only. 21+ is old

Huge shout out to Sue Dinem at, without him this entire post would not have happened.
