Isotopes Park in Albuquerque will use a humidor this season in an effort to become less hitter-friendly.

That diversity of ballpark context adds a layer of fascination to the minor leagues.

Top 100 Prospects Rankings Show Progress

Will Lingo -

You know, we will never figure out a perfect way to do the Top 100 Prospects list, because there's no way for us to know with certainty which players are going to fall by the wayside due to poor performance or misfortune. But I like to think we have become significantly better over the years at building our list, which is why it continues to be regarded as the best ranking of its kind in the industry.
