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.

    Headshot 2021 Gabriel Moreno 91517 Milb

    Gabriel Moreno

    Blue Jays C
    Notes:

    Tools: Hit: 55 | Power: 45 | Run: 30 | Fielding: 50 | Arm: 55
    Skinny: A broken thumb took time out of Moreno's 2021 season, but it was otherwise a breakout season for a player who became one of the game's elite catching prospects. Moreno has always been a good athlete with the hand-eye coordination to make a lot of contact, but swing adjustments and more strength have helped his power show up more in games.

    Nate Pearson 2021

    Nate Pearson

    Blue Jays RHP
    Notes:

    Tools: Fastball: 80 | Curveball: 50 | Slider: 70 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 55
    Skinny: When Pearson is healthy and at his best, his pure stuff compares favorably among the best pitching prospects in game. Staying healthy and improving his control are his next steps to fulfilling his frontline potential, and his durability only has more question marks after 2021.

    Orelvis Martinez 2021

    Orelvis Martinez

    Blue Jays SS
    Notes:

    Tools: Hit: 60 | Power: 60 | Run: 45 | Fielding: 40 | Arm: 60
    Skinny: Martinez might have to move to third base, but he profiles well there with huge power and enough feel for hitting to tap into that power in games despite his youth.

    Headshot 2021 Jordan Groshans 99124 Milb

    Jordan Groshans

    Blue Jays SS
    Notes:

    Tools: Hit: 60 | Power: 60 | Run: 50 | Fielding: 50 | Arm: 60
    Skinny: There is a strong belief in Groshans' bat. A first-round pick in 2018 who missed most of 2019 due to injury and 2020 due to the pandemic, Groshans handled himself well while skipping a level to Double-A in 2021, likely projecting best at third base long term.
