Top 50 Junior College Prospects

Major league teams have until a week before this year's draft to sign the current crop of draft-and-follow players. Only those junior college players drafted last June are permitted to sign.

Here's how Baseball America draft expert Allan Simpson sees the nation's top 50 juco prospects, with players who are eligible to sign before the draft noted by the club that controls their rights. The round they were drafted in last year is in parentheses, and those who have already signed are indicated by an asterisk. For a complete list of draft-and-follow signings, click here.
