Yes, this blog still exists. Technically. In any event, hit that link if you're a Baseball Prospectus subscriber for the Monday Morning Ten Pack – it has a couple of paragraphs on Brett Siddall, an outfielder for Stockton, by Wilson Karaman, for my money the best writer going on the prospect side at BP, and a brief look at Kevin Merrell, a 2017 late first-rounder out of the University of South Florida. Siddall lacks a starters upside, per Karaman, but could be a nice find as a former 13th-round pick, while Merrell is a speedy athlete with little power but good patience and bat control.
