Baseball Prospectus: Young high school draftees better than old

3

Pretty interesting article from BP. Done reading? Now hit up part two, http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=15306 Since I know you're now scrambling to find Larry Greene's birthday, I'll save you the trouble: Larry Greene- born 2/10/1993, age on June 1st 2011, 18.32 years, which places him in the 2010 "young" bin (they didn't say anything about the 2011 draft, so I'm going with the most recent info), which is good news for us. I know this study included only high school hitters in the top 100 picks, but I figured I'd dig up the info on Walding and T. Greene as well since I was curious: T. Greene- born on 12/1/1992, 18.51 years old on June 1st 2011, which puts him in the 2010 "average" bin. Walding- born on 9/10/1992, 18.73 years old on June 1st 2011, which puts him in the "old" bin. blah Also, John Singleton- born on 9/18/1991, 17.7 (!!!!) years old on June 1st 2009, which gets him into the "very young" bin.
