Seattle Top 10
By Bill Mitchell
Two very gifted outfielders are tracking toward one day reigning the Pacific Northwest.
Julio Rodriguez and Jarred Kelenic are the centerpieces of Seattle's system entering 2020, providing Mariners fans two high-end outfield prospects to dream on amid a rebuild at the major league level. And while they are the two biggest names, they are far from the only intriguing pieces in a system that ended the year ranked just outside the top 10 across baseball, its best mark in quite some time.

First Base: Evan White (27)
