Top 100 Prospects

SEE ALSO: Revised Top 10 Prospects

Prospect season never ends at Baseball America, but the Top 100 Prospects list is the natural demarcation line from one season to another. All of our countless conversations with scouts, coaches and team officials as well as many road trips over the past year have led to this list. And as soon as we put this Top 100 in your hands we’ll start working and thinking about next year’s list. The Top 100 was compiled by John Manuel, J.J. Cooper, Matt Eddy, Ben Badler, Josh Norris and Vince Lara-Cinisomo. (Ages are as of Feb. 12, 2016; tool grades are projected future grades). You can find video of nearly every player on our YouTube page.
