Brew Crew Ball Community Top Prospects Vote: #8

New, comments

No one's higher on Cody Ponce than you. Will you fall back in line at No. 8 or continue to forge your own path?

The voting for prospect No. 7 in your countdown is complete, and for the first time the BCB community is higher on someone than anyone else I've seen. You placed Cody Ponce, the Brewers' second round draft pick last year, in the #7 spot, and no other list has him higher than ninth. Are y'all seers or fools? Only time will tell. To replace Ponce, I'm sticking another high-upside pitcher who's still got a ways to go on the list: Marcos Diplan. Your list so far:

1. SS Orlando Arcia 11.
2. OF Brett Phillips 12.
3. RHP Jorge Lopez 13.
4. OF Trent Clark 14.
5. LHP Josh Hader 15. Ps & Cs Report!
6. SS Gilbert Lara 16.
7. RHP Cody Ponce 17.
8. ??? 18.
9. 19.
10. 20.

Again, if you need a little guidance, here are the organizational lists that have been released up to this point. Our list will of course supersede all of them as the definitive Brewers prospects ranking once complete:

Minor League Ball
Baseball America
Baseball Prospectus: 1-1011-20

Voting will be live until the following day (or Monday, for polls posted on Friday) at noon for each poll in this countdown. If at any point there's a player you would have voted for and think others would as well, just let me know in the comments.

Note: The organizational top 30 from MLB Pipeline has not yet been updated for 2016. The organizational rankings below are implied by each players' ranking on the overall list, which was released Friday.
