Jim Callis is on a very short list of people whose work has helped make prospect watching a cottage industry around the internet. He began working with Baseball America in 1988, following a college internship with the magazine, and over the course of 23 years with the organization Jim rose to become BA's Executive Editor and played a significant role in developing signature publications like the Prospect Handbook. He's also worked as a Draft and Prospect Expert on ESPN and on MLB Network. He now works for MLB as a prospect expert on the MLBPipeline website.
It's de rigueur when talking about Jim and drafts that you have to mention his legendary 2005 mock but it's equally important to mention how generous he is with his time and knowledge. Which leads us to this interview! Thanks so much to Jim for taking the time with us to talk a little bit about the Giants 2015 draft.
