Farm System Rankings

New, 5 comments


Recently, I published an article using 13 different rankings to get a combination ranking of prospects.   From those rankings, I created overall team rankings.

I took the average rank (94) of the lowest ranked player, Junichi Tazawa, to make the baseline value.  I added 1 to his average rank (94+1) to give Junichi Tazawa some value.  Then I subtracted each prospects averaged ranking from 95 to give each player a point value.  The top ranked player, Jason Heyward got the most points while Junichi Tazawa got the least.  Finally I added up the totals to get the overall rankings.  

With all that work done, here are the organizational rankings:
