2021 BA 200 Draft Rankings

Our 2021 draft rankings are here!

Carlos Collazo has the top 200 names to know, complete with initial scouting reports for each player, prospect video & more.

Baseball America’s MLB Draft Prospects rankings are compiled in consultation with scouts and evaluators from major league clubs. Every January, major league scouting departments hunker down for pre-season meetings to prepare for the upcoming amateur season. This year could be more chaotic for scouts than ever before thanks to challenges the coronavirus pandemic caused during last year’s evaluation period—particularly for the college class.

Scouts have fewer looks entering this season on this draft class than they ever before. Teams who place heavier weight on models and statistics don’t have nearly the same amount of information baked into their algorithms.

Still, the draft will take place in 179 days. With that we are excited to present the top 200 prospects in the 2021 draft class. This is the first step in a long process that will eventually culminate in the BA 500 closer to the July draft, with scouting reports on every player to provide an exhaustive look at the 2021 class. As ever, our draft list is compiled with feedback from major league scouts and evaluators.
