What do I use in my analysis? In general, I take the player population in question, and simply divide it into quartiles. The top 25% are Excellent, the next 25% are Good, etc.
It’s not quite that simple. I eliminate older prospects, and I usually eliminate players so bad there is no owner in any of my leagues who would ever consider picking that player. Then I divide the remainder into quartiles.
For this web site, I took the 100 “best” batters/pitchers from each of the AAA, AA and High-A leagues in 2019, aggregated the lists, eliminated those 26 and older, and those at the extremes, and wound up with about 800 names each (batters and pitchers). Each category contains roughly 200 players.
