2020 Top 100 Prospects, Brought To You By Rapsodo
9/24 Update: Brusdar Graterol became the latest Dodgers rookie to graduate off the list. He's replaced by another fireballing prospect at No. 100.
This year, Baseball America is breaking from tradition to rank unsigned draft picks among our Top 100 Prospects.
Our ranking is subjected to change in the event a 2020 draft pick does not sign (the deadline is Aug. 1) or is determined to be seriously injured before he signs. We decided to withhold players' ETAs because of the unusual nature of player development season.

Clarke SchmidtYankees RHPNotes:
Final 2019 Ranking: UnrankedSkinny: The Yankees knew from the outset that they’d have to wait for Schmidt while he recovered from Tommy John surgery. In 2019, he showed his true potential. He matched up well against Casey Mize in his first start of the year, led Double-A Trenton to the league title and now sits as the top pitcher in the Yankees’ system.

Deivi GarciaYankees RHPNotes:
Final 2019 Ranking: 61Skinny: Garcia dominated high Class A and Double-A before running into trouble with command at Triple-A. He still ranks behind Clarke Schmidt as the second-best pitching prospect in the system, but there are plenty of questions about whether he has the frame to stay in the starting rotation.
