Baseball America put out their 2012 Top 100 Prospect list today, and three Astros farmhands made the cut.

Jonathan Singleton, #34
Jarred Cosart, #50
George Springer, #59

Not too shabby.

Glad to see Singleton ahead of the rest. He should be.

It's nice to see Cosart in the Top 50, too. A lot of people are down on him due to the low K/9 rate, but he's still one of the most electric arms in the minors in terms of pure quality of stuff.

Singleton and Cosart are two that we got in the Pence trade.
Starting to look like a decent transaction.

I'm not worried about the K/9, that will come with further development and experience. It's the health that worries me. If he can stay healthy, he could be an elite closer at least, if not a great starter.

On the subject of Top Prospect lists, John Sickels at Minor League Ball put up his Top 120 Prospects List this morning. It's worth a look.
