According to the KC Star, Bubba Starling has been rated with a "75" in the Baseball America Handbook:
Baseball America, in its Prospect Handbook, recently graded Starling at 75 on the 20-80 scouting scale, which projects his potential to be in the company of "franchise players and No. 1 starters such as Albert Pujols, Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and Roy Halladay."
We all know Bubba Starling is a highly rated prospect, but I had no idea that he was in the company of potential hall of famers such as Albert Pujols, Roy Halladay, Alex Rodriguez, and Derek Jeter.
I realize that this is no guarantee that he will put up HOF numbers, but this is very high praise...higher than any Royals prospect I've ever heard about.
