Skole misses the Fangraphs top 15 for the system, but gets a write up in the "just missed"  teaser they reelased.

YEAR IN REVIEW: In short-season ball, Skole had a solid debut by hitting for both average (.290) and gap power (23 doubles in 272 at-bats). He also showed a good eye at the plate with a walk rate of 13.2%. The left-handed hitter will have to improve against southpaws (.581 OPS) if he’s going to continue to play every day. His defense was inconsistent at third base and he needs to improve on his foot work.

Rest of the write up points out how tied his future is to the fate of RZ and Rendon.  The write up suggests a future as either trade bait and/ or conversion to first base.
