Mid-Season Review: A's Prospects 10-1

Scout Premium Content

During the off-season, we named our top-50 prospects in the Oakland A's system. Now that we have passed the midway point of the season, we thought it would be a good time to check the progress of those players. In the last in our series, we take a look at the progress of prospects 10-1 from our off-season list.

Note: this is not a re-ranking of current prospects. A new top-50 prospects list will be released this off-season. 10. Bobby Wahl Bobby Wahl Wahl was the A’s fifth-round pick last season, but he was tabbed as a potential draft steal. The Mississippi star was a potential first-rounder going into the 2013 season, but he slipped in the draft thanks to injury concerns. The A’s were careful to monitor Wahl’s workload last year and Wahl has been mostly healthy this season (he missed a few weeks early in the season with an oblique strain). He struggled as a starter for Low-A Beloit, but the high-energy, hard-throwing right-hander has excelled since moving into the bullpen in June. On the season, Wahl has 45 strike-outs in 44.2 innings for Beloit and Stockton. He has tossed two scoreless innings with two strike-outs since his promotion to High-A. Wahl recently made the jump to High-A Stockton, and, if he stays healthy, he should be on an accelerated course towards the big leagues now...
