Starling Marte and Jeff Locke make International League Top 20

Baseball America recently released their Top 20 Prospect rankings for the International League and both Starling Marte and Jeff Locke made the top 10.

Marte played 99 games for Indianapolis before his promotion to Pittsburgh and .286/.347/.500 with 12 home runs over 388 at-bats. Marte also stole 21 bases in 33 attempts.

Locke made 24 starts before his promotion to Pittsburgh and probably put together his best season of his career. He was 10-5 with a 2.48 ERA and a 131:43 K:BB ratio over 141 2/3 innings.

Marte looks like he will be the Pirates’ starting left fielder in 2013 and Locke has a pretty good shot at starting the year in the Pirates’ rotation.
