Top 50 Prospects By Class

Baseball America ranks the top 50 players by class. The senior list mixes prospect status, which weighs heaviest at the top, with players who are strong contributors to their college teams. The junior, sophomore and freshmen lists tilt much heavier to future prospect status. For sophomores and freshmen, asterisk (*) denotes draft eligible.
