2021 Top 100 Prospects, Brought To You By Rapsodo
Baseball America's final significant in-season Top 100 update is here, accounting for considerable performances changes and new information gathered since our comprehensive updated at the midpoint of the 2021 season.
Today's update includes four new pitchers near the back of the list from the Rays, Twins, D-backs and Mariners organizations.
The lost 2020 season of a year ago created a challenging environment to assess prospects, particularly deciphering whether gains made at alternate training sites and instructional league camps would hold under the rigors of a full season. The 2021 season has done an excellent job filtering out which steps forward were real and which were fleeting hot streaks.
You will also find updated capsules for a number of players, taking in-season production or new injury information into account where applicable.
The Top 100 is brought to you by Rapsodo. Rapsodo develops data-driven sports technologies designed to empower athletes and coaches to cost-effectively analyze and improve their game. All 30 MLB teams and over 1,200 colleges and facilities use Rapsodo data as a measuring stick for player development and evaluation.
