What to Watch For At Diamond Futures

As the season begins to wind down, and many of you turn your attention to other sports, we just wanted to give you a brief look ahead, to what you can expect to see from us at Diamond Futures during the next few months…

September –

Tuesday , September 1st
– We will be publishing the results of our recently completed study on the correlation between Minor League statistics and Major League success. It is our 4th such study over the last decade, and by far our most comprehensive look yet.
Wednesday, September 2nd – Our Final Regular Season Hots ‘n’ Nots
Friday, September 4th – We will begin our league-by-league reviews of the Minor League’s top age adjusted performances for the 2009 season. We will evaluate every league, starting with the Venezuelan Summer League and ending with the Pacific Coast League, near the end of the month (19 Leagues in all). We will be posting approximately 5-6 Leagues each week during the month.
Wednesday, September 9th – Our End of the Year Hots ‘n’ Nots List where we rank the players that have helped or harmed their prospect status the most this year.

October –
October is our busiest research month of the year, and this year it will be by far the most hectic yet, as we will also be changing software and hosting sites. Our postings will be somewhat more sporadic, but you will still find an updated 2010 Draft Top 30 List, a recap of the International Signings of note, as well as some of historical work that we have done in the past.

November thru January –
During the second week of November, we will begin publishing our team by team prospect lists, at a rate of two to three per week. We will conclude this in Early February with the Diamond Futures Top 300 List. The culmination of this will be the most extensive prospect list available anywhere on the web.

February –
In February, the season begins in earnest for us at Diamond Futures. We will kick off the month with our 2010 Preseason Draft Top 50 and our ‘Winter Wonders’ list of the top performances from Winter Ball. This will be followed by our Top 300 list. Around the middle of the month we will take a look at the 2010 college baseball season, and this should take us right up to the beginning of Cactus and Grapefruit League play.

We hope that this is enough to keep you plenty interested in baseball during the long off-season.
