SEE ALSO: Top 100 Scouting Reports

Prospect season never ends at Baseball America, but the Top 100 Prospects is the natural demarcation between one season to another.

Countless conversations with scouts, coaches and team officials as well as many road trips over the past year lead to this list. And as soon as we put it in your hands, we begin working toward next year's. The Top 100 is compiled with input from John Manuel, J.J. Cooper, Matt Eddy, Ben Badler, Kyle Glaser, Hudson Belinsky and Vince Lara-Cinisomo. Grades listed are for each player’s projected future tools.
