You’d think a team that had traded away all of their stars would have some blue chip prospects but you wouldn’t know it from Kevin Goldstein’s top eleven Astros prospect list. They do have three four star prospects but no five star guys. Too bad.
Topping the list is Jarred Cosart. He came over in the Hunter Pence deal and the right handed pitcher split time between High A and Double A. This power arm also gives up his share of walks and he’ll start the season in Double-A. He’s at least another year away.
Number two is George Springer, the Astros first round pick in 2011. The outfielder got into eight games at Low-A and this guy is a potential stud. He could start at Low-A but could be High-A and while he’s a couple of years away, this could be the team’s center fielder of the future.
Jonathan Singleton (1b), Brett Oberholtzer (LHP) and Jonathan Villar (SS) round out the top five. Oberholtzer is the only guy who’s close to major league ready with the rest more like two or three years out.
