Top 100 Prospects
This is Baseball America's 22nd annual Top 100 Prospects list,our definitive annual ranking of the best professional talent in baseball below the major league level and the culmination of our offseason prospect coverage.Our focus this year is on the Split Decisions throughout the list—those points where our voters disagreed.
You'll find those highlighted throughout the next seven pages, with people explaining their why they voted the way they did. Six people contributed to the voting this year: Co-Editors Will Lingo and John Manuel, executive editor Jim Callis, managing editor J.J. Cooper, associate editor Matt Eddy and assistant editor Conor Glassey. Each person compiled a top 150 list, and we then reviewed the composite numbers and made adjustments before locking down the final list. The rankings follow our standard prospect guidelines, which means any player who has not exceeded 130 at-bats, 50 innings or 30 appearances in the major leagues (without regard to service time) is eligible.
