Re: Walker / Hultzen The thought of these two possibly pitching in Safeco with King Felix is pretty nice for Mariners fans.

Re: Walker Definitely can get up to the top five with a few more good showings. In this case being on the Mariners also brought down his score a bit. But I'm sure he'll rise in the next ranking.

A case could be made for him to be as high as #7 on the current list.

Re: Betances To be truthful Betances should've been ranked much lower. For the "Hype" Score, I took into account if these prospects existed on some of the more trusted lists that I reference to on occasion. For certain guys (ie. Betances) I would adjust the Hype score accordingly. Betances was an oversight, go figure; the one "top" prospect having a terrible year. If I adjusted it accordingly, he'd be in the 211 range. I did try to offset it by adjusting his upside score, but you're right, it wasn't enough. While he's doing much better in AA, he could fall further if he doesn't get promoted to AAA again in the near future.

... Taijuan Walker sure looked good in the Futures Game. He's fared pretty well at Double-A despite being just 19 years of age. He could move up this list with a strong second half, in my opinion.

Re: Betances Color me kinda shocked that Dellin Betances is ranked as high as he is. His numbers have been awful and he's making zero progress towards becoming an MLB-ready pitcher. As a Yankees fan, I think he's very overrated.
