Fantasy baseball and real life prospect analysis are often at odds. Elements that matter in the real-life game often have less impact in fantasy and vice versa.

With this in mind, Baseball America for the first time has created a fantasy-driven Top 100 list. The goal here was to create an actionable ranking for dynasty managers to utilize.

In the same way Baseball America has set the standard for minor league reporting over the last four decades, we look to do the same in the fantasy space.

This list was curated and ranked by fantasy analyst Dylan White and prospect writer Geoff Pontes. With conflicting styles of evaluation, Dylan and Geoff looked to bridge the gap between data-driven analysis and in-depth reporting. The finished product is our first Fantasy Top 100 list. Enjoy.

The prime projections listed are estimates based on recent minor league production, applying major league translations to estimate a 2023 major league “projection”, and then applying aging curves to extrapolate implied performance during the player’s prime production years. The translations and curves are agnostic to information about injuries or other externalities and are solely results-based.

1. Orioles, Gunnar Henderson, SS/3B: Explosive power, advanced plate skills and premium defensive value provide a clear path to immediate returns. Hit .259/.348/.440 with 12 extra-base hits in 34 games with Baltimore to end 2022.

2. D-backs, Corbin Carroll, OF: Interchangeable top player with Henderson on lists. Top-of-the-scale speed should translate to stolen bases, with a well-rounded offensive profile boasting contact, approach and power. Hit .260/.330/.500 over 32 games with D-Backs to end 2022.

3. Reds, Elly De La Cruz, SS: Premier athlete with some of the loudest tools and greatest fantasy upside. Hit 28 home runs with 47 stolen bases as a 20-year-old in 120 games between High-A and Double-A. Plate discipline and swing and miss are legitimate concerns.

4. Yankees, Anthony Volpe, SS: Possesses a tantalizing combination of speed, power and plate skills, and will begin 2023 in Triple-A at 21 years old. Hit 35 doubles, 21 home runs and 50 stolen bases over 132 games across Double-A and Triple-A.

5. Brewers, Jackson Chourio, OF: Few players possess the upside of Chourio with his exciting combination of power, speed and hitting ability. Hit .288/.342/.538 with 20 home runs across three levels of full-season ball as an 18-year-old.

6. Mets, Francisco Alvarez, C: Easy plus-plus raw power and advanced on-base skills drive Alvarez’s fantasy friendly profile. Will likely be prolific in OBP leagues with some drag in batting average formats. Made MLB debut at 20, and is a bat-first catcher with fantasy star upside.

7. Cardinals, Jordan Walker, 3B/OF: Walker’s growth over his two seasons as a professional has catapulted his stock to the top of prospect rankings. His combination of double-plus raw power, athleticism and production at the plate could equal fantasy stardom. Plate discipline and contact are concerns.

8. Nationals, James Wood, OF: Potential OPS league monster in the making. Wood hits the ball as hard as the best power hitters in the majors with plus on-base ability. Hit .313/.420/.536 over 76 games between the Low-A Cal and Carolina leagues in 2022.

9. Orioles, Grayson Rodriguez, RHP: Injury likely robbed him of a 2022 MLB debut, but Rodriguez is in prime position to contribute for the Orioles in 2023. He has a deep mix of quality offerings spearheaded by a plus-plus fastball, a plus slider and a changeup with good command.

10. Marlins, Eury Perez, RHP: A pitching prodigy that broke camp with Double-A squad in 2022. Perez made 17 starts there, striking out 34.1% of the batters he faced. Deep pitch mix of plus pitches led by a high-90s fastball, a slider and a changeup. Front-of-the-rotation potential.

11. Phillies, Andrew Painter, RHP: In just one season as a professional Painter has climbed all the way to Double-A and the top of pitching prospect rankings. With an upper-90s fastball, a hard sweeping slider and an infrequently used changeup, Painter has ace potential.

12. Dodgers, Miguel Vargas, 3B: The polished plate skills of Vargas are extremely attractive heading into 2023. Vargas hit .304/.404/.511 with a BB% of 13.7 to a K% of 14.6 over 113 Triple-A games. Debuted at 22 and may be in-line for regular at-bats in 2023.

13. Rockies, Ezequiel Tovar, SS: Debuted in MLB about a month after his 21st birthday, Tovar hit .318/.386/.545 with 13 homers over 66 games in Double-A at 20. A high-contact player with sneaky thump and could flourish at Coors.

14. Orioles, Jackson Holliday, SS: No. 1 overall pick with excellent all-around skill set who still has plenty of physical projection remaining. An excellent pro debut has only added to his soaring status within the industry.

15. Red Sox, Marcelo Mayer, SS: Mayer hit .280/.399/.489 across 91 games in 2022. He missed time with a wrist injury but produced a .405 wOBA following the injury. Flashy combination of hitting ability, approach and power to project for fantasy stardom.

16. D-backs, Jordan Lawlar, SS: An impressive full-season debut saw Lawlar hit .303/.401/.509 over 100 games across three levels. Reached Double-A by season’s end. Strong plate skills drive the profile, but there are some questions around underwhelming hard contact data.

17. Padres, Jackson Merrill, SS: One of the best hit tools in the minor league with projetcable lefthanded power. An AFL standout after an injury plagued season, Merrill has top prospect in the game upside. Hit .325/.387/.482 over 45 Low-A games in 2022.

18. Rays, Curtis Mead, 2B/3B: Mead has perhaps the best combination of contact and power on the Top 100, but approach gains saw his profile evolve into a truly well-rounded hitter. There are questions around his defensive home but the bat is too good to overlook.

19. Rays, Kyle Manzardo, 1B: Huge breakout in his first professional season, hit .327/.426/.617 over 93 games between High-A and Double-A. Premium pairing of plate discipline, contact and hard contact. High-end exit velocities are lacking but few hitters generate hard contact as consistently.

20. Red Sox, Triston Casas, 1B: Gigantic lefthanded hitter with plate skills to match his mammoth raw power. Casas debuted at the end of 2022 for the Red Sox and is poised to take on a larger role. Hit .273/.382/.481 with 11 homers over 72 Triple-A games in 2022.

21. Twins, Royce Lewis, SS/OF: Former top pick that’s dealt with a litany of injuries over the past few seasons. Showed impressive power and tools in major league debut, and has the ability to immediatley impact fantasy teams in 2023.

22. D-backs, Druw Jones, OF: Top-ranked player in the 2022 draft class with bloodlines, elite defensive potential in center field, pure hitting potential and double-plus speed.

23. Mets, Brett Baty, 3B: Baty’s minor league hard-hit rate of 51.8% ranks fourth on the Top 100 and was one of the highest in the minor leagues in 2022. Made his debut last season and could be set for consistent big league playing time in 2023.

24. Brewers, Sal Frelick, OF: Frelick’s armed with a variety of ways to get on base and his bat-to-ball skills were on full display in 2022. He hit .331/.403/.480 with 11 home runs and 24 stolen bases. A potential future batting champ with speed and sneaky pop.

25. Mets, Kodai Senga, RHP: Wide repertoire, proximity and No. 3 starter upside make him the safest FYPD pick; possibly the best NPB pure pitcher import since Masahiro Tanaka.

26. Rangers, Evan Carter, OF: Up-the-middle profile with elite on-base skills, plus hitting ability and projectable power. Hit .287/.388/.476 in 100 High-A games. Plus running ability accentutaes plate skills—he stole 28 bases with 10 triples in 2022. Managers are dreaming on a power breakout to unlock superstar potential.

27. Pirates, Termarr Johnson, 2B: One of the best pure hitters to come out of high school in more than a decade. Johnson has a double-plus hitting projection combined with plus power potential on the infield.

28. Athletics, Tyler Soderstrom, C/1B: Only Gunnar Henderson and Curtis Mead had a higher 2022 MiLB hard-hit percentage in the Top 100. Soderstrom shook off a tough first month where he hit .187/.250/.352 in the frigid High-A Midwest League. Hit .285/.340/.534 with 26 home runs from May 10 on.

29. Twins, Emmanuel Rodriguez, OF: Rodriguez has otherwordly on-base ability and power, but his breakout 2022 was cut short by a knee injury. Hit .272/.492/.551 in the power-starved Low-A Florida State League. Plenty of swing and miss but discerning eye offsets some of those conerns. Plus-plus raw power with the ability to stick in the grass.

30. Guardians, Daniel Espino, RHP: Over the opening month of the season Espino was the most dominant pitcher in MiLB, striking out 35 batters over 18.1 innings. He then had a knee injury, followed by a shoulder issue. High-risk and high-reward player for fantasy. A full healthy 2023 could see him finishing in the majors.

31. Cubs, Pete Crow-Armstrong, OF: PCA is an advanced hitter with speed, projectable power and elite center field defense. You buy Crow-Armstrong for the hitting and speed and bank on power gains in the coming years.

32. Twins, Brooks Lee, SS: Advanced switch-hitting college infielder with pure bat-to-ball skills and power. Likely to move off shortstop but the bat plays everywhere. There’s some health risk due to lingering back issues.

33. Blue Jays, Ricky Tiedemann, LHP: Filthy lefthander with three plus or better pitches in his mid-90s fastball, sweepy slider and easy plus changeup. Tiedemann has plus whiff rates against all three of his pitches. Dominated across three levels with a 2.17 ERA, 29.2% K-BB and .148 opponent average over 78 innings.

34. Red Sox, Masataka Yoshida, OF: NPB import’s hyper-selective approach and elite bat-to-ball skills will help him get on base and score runs as Boston’s leadoff hitter. He’s not a factor for steals.

35. Orioles, Colton Cowser, OF: Cowser has an advanced hit tool and elite on-base skills. He added loft in the middle of the season and saw a power surge from mid-June onward. Finished season in Triple-A, with an elevated K% something to watch. Another Orioles prospect with OPS league upside.

36. Rockies, Zac Veen, OF: Veen has polish well beyond his years with bat-to-ball skills, approach and baserunning acumen. Still plenty of projectable power remaining, just a matter of tapping into it. Struggled in Double-A debut, hitting .177/.262/.234 over 34 games. However, no reason to panic.

37. Rays, Shane Baz, RHP: 2022 Tommy John surgery has Baz on the shelf for all of 2023. but when Baz is healthy he has top-of-the-rotation upside. He has a plus fastball, slider and changeup with recently improved command. Will the stuff and command return post injury?

38. Giants, Marco Luciano, SS: Luciano had just 57 games at the High-A level in 2022. but cut his strikeout rate by 40% year-over-year at the level. Premier power upside with 106 mph 90th percentile exit velocity.

39. White Sox, Colson Montgomery, SS: Standout athlete with advanced bat-to-ball skills and a good approach with projectable power. Had a 50-game on-base streak before an aggressive push to Double-A late in the season. Hit .295/.408/.450 with 30 extra-base hits.

40. Orioles, Connor Norby, 2B: Underrated college player that enjoyed a breakout in 2022. Hit .306/.391/.591 with 21 home runs over final 73 games between Double-A and Triple-A level. Close to the majors hitter with well-rounded offensive game.

41. Astros, Hunter Brown, RHP: Dominated in PCL hitter’s paradise with a 2.55 ERA over 106 innings and struck out 31.5% of batters with a 54.6% groundball rate. Plus-plus fastball with a pair of hard breaking balls in low-90s slider and a low-to-mid-80s curveball. Huge stuff, but reliever questions linger.

42. Dodgers, Diego Cartaya, C: Plus power-hitting catcher with on-base skills. Questions around his catching ability arose in 2022. but we only care about the bat. Hit .254/.389/.503 with 22 home runs in 95 games across both levels of Class A.

43. Reds, Noelvi Marte, 3B: A power projection, righthanded-hitting infielder with some plate skills. Marte hit .279/.371/.458 with 19 homers and 23 stolen bases over 115 High-A games. Heavy pull side-focused swing has led to questions. Has average contact and chase rates with fairly modest exit velocities.

44. Guardians, Gavin Williams, RHP: True power pitcher with 6-foot-6 workhorse frame, Williams has a four-pitch mix with multiple plus offerings in his fastball, slider and curveball. Williams not only generates lots of swing and miSS: he also controls hard contact.

45. Nationals, Elijah Green, OF: Elite athlete with massive power-speed combination that stacks up as the best such combo in the 2022 draft class; pro debut highlighted both impact and miss concerns.

46. Rangers, Josh Jung, 3B: If not for yet another injury (shoulder), Jung likely would have graduated from this list. Plate discipline cratered post-injury, Triple-A BB% dropped significantly and Jung struggled in 26-game MLB sample. If plate skills return Jung has contact, approach and power.

47. Giants, Kyle Harrison, LHP: Low-slot lefthander with a robust three-pitch mix. Unique fastball shape and plane allow fastball to dominate. His sweepy slider and changeup generated strong results. Succesful season in Double-A at 20; command questions make Harrison divisive.

48. D-backs, Brandon Pfaadt, RHP: Pfaadt had a breakout 2022 and managed to navigate two of the toughest hitting environnments in the minors, while posting the highest MiLB strikeout total since 2001. He has a four-pitch mix led by a fastball-slider combo. It’s a starter profile built around plus command.

49. Dodgers, Bobby Miller, RHP: Fireballer righthander that sits upper 90s on his fastball with a bevy of plus pitches. Command comes and goes, but Miller has the loud stuff and the Dodgers pitching development behind him. Upper-minors success may translate to opportunities in 2023.

50. Athletics, Esteury Ruiz, OF: Significant improvements to Ruiz’s swing decisions translated to a breakout season. Stole 85 bases in the minors in 2022. with clear path to playing time in Oakland, Ruiz has immediate value in redraft leagues. Will the plate skills and average power hold up?

51. Yankees, Oswald Peraza, SS: Above-average shortstop defense means he will get playing time—and the bat should be a nice blend of power and speed. He may force Volpe to second base.

52. Reds, Cam Collier, 3B: One of the youngest players drafted in 2022 with an offensive approach and bat-to-ball skills well beyond his years; power is showing up already.

53. Yankees, Jasson Dominguez, OF: While Dominguez has not met the unfair expectations placed on him upon signing, he’s still an exciting prospect, with a combination of on-base ability, power and athleticism. Still some swing and miss concerns but switch-hitters take longer to gel.

54. Rockies, Adael Amador, SS: Amador has elite contact and swing decisions with fringe-average power. He’s a bat-first prospect that likely slides to second base long term. Hit .292/.415/.445 with 15 home runs in 2022. and has more power to come with advanced plate skills.

55. Dodgers, Gavin Stone, RHP: The 2022 MiLB ERA champion, Stone rose through three levels of the minors, reaching Triple-A by the end of the season. Plus fastball, plus-plus changeup and new sweeping slider give Stone a refined arsenal. Upper-minors success could lead to opportunity in 2023.

56. Cubs, Matt Mervis, 1B: After struggling in his pro debut, Mervis shortened his swing and adjusted his approach, and what followed was one of the more unexpected breakouts of 2022. He hit .309/.379/.605 with 36 homers across three levels.

57. Angels, Logan O’Hoppe, C: O’Hoppe should be the Angels long-term backstop for years, and his above-average bat should play up in any format.

58. Pirates, Endy Rodriguez, C: The catcher exploded in the second half, leading the minor leagues in batting average, slugging and extra-base hits from July 1 on. Combination of plus hitting and plus power drive the profile despite the catcher risk in fantasy.

59. Mets, Kevin Parada, C: Adding power in 2022 helped catapult his profile, which includes strong discipline and contact skills; not a lock to stick at catcher.

60. Rays, Junior Caminero, 3B: The 2021 DSL stanndout enjoyed his first season state side hitting .314/.384/.498 with 11 homers over 62 games across FCL and Low-A. High-upside power hitter with eye-popping exit velocities for his age. Advanced plate skills allows him to get to raw power.

61. Guardians, George Valera, OF: Hit .253/.353/.463 over 132 games combined across Double-A and Triple-A in 2022. Above-average power and plus on-base abilities drive the profile. Some concerns around swing and miss and lack of supporting skills.

62. Cardinals, Masyn Winn, SS: Winn took an important step forward at the plate in 2022. hitting .283/.364/.468 with 56 extra-base hits He has an 80-grade arm that should keep him at shortstop, with the contact, approach and power upside to develop into a top-of-the-order run producer.

63. D-Backs, Gabriel Moreno, C: The trade to the D-Backs provides potential for immediate playing time. Moreno is a standout defensive catcher with plus-plus bat-to-ball skills and advanced plate discipline, above-average raw power is lurking but Moreno will need to adjust his swing.

64. Angels, Zach Neto, SS: One of the top post-draft risers, Neto pushed his way to Double-A in his pro debut and excelled across the board; combines pure hit and solid defense at shortstop.

65. Guardians, Bo Naylor, C: After a difficult 2021 Naylor rebounded in 2022 hitting .263/.392/.496 with 21 HR over 118 minor league games. Made MLB debut over the final week of the season. Discening eye at the plate with above-average contact skills and strong EV data.

66. Phillies, Mick Abel, RHP: Electric righthander with a plus fastball, plus slider, an above-average changeup and average curveball, Abel has major stuff and improving command. Reached Double-A by the end of 2022. Front of the rotation upside.

67. Orioles, Jordan Westburg, SS/3B: Orioles minor league player of the year hit .265/.355/.496 with 27 HR across Double-A and Triple-A. Well balanced skillset with power, strong plate discipline and athleticism. Some swing and miss concerns, but approach offsets it.

68. Nationals, Cade Cavalli, RHP: After terrible first seven starts in Triple-A Cavalli upped his curveball usage and found success over final 13 starts. Mid-90s fastball with plus curveball, slider and a changeup that all miss bats. Fringy command and strike-throwing adds some risk.

69. Orioles, Coby Mayo, 3B: A physcial plus power-hitting third baseman, that dealt with back spasms in 2022. Strong plate skills and plus-plus raw power hint at middle of the order hitter upside. Finished 2022 in Double-A as a 20 year old.

70. Dodgers, Dalton Rushing, C: The next up in the Louisville catching tradition had an outstanding pro debut after a loud platform season in college; big power and should stick at catcher.

71. Yankees, Everson Pereira, OF: Excellent athlete with plus-plus raw power and below-average bat-to-ball skills. Average swing decisions offer a glimmer of bigger OBP upside. Hit .277/.350/.469 with 14 HR over 102 games across High-A and Double-A.

72. Red Sox, Miguel Bleis, OF: Young projectable outfielder with violent bat speed and EV data on par with MLB power-hitters. Shows at least average contact and approach with plus raw power and plenty of projection in his thin 6-foot-3 frame.

73. Royals, Gavin Cross, OF: A well-rounded outfielder with average or better tools across the board. His above-average combination of contact and power make Cross a safe first-round pick in FYPD.

74. Cubs, Alexander Canario, OF: Finishing 2022 with 37 HRs and 23 SBs across three levels including AAA, there is no question the athelticism and power (and fantasy friendly skillset) should give him a role in Wrigley. But the swing and miss – and recent injury woes (2 shoulder surgeries and an ankle surgery within two years) – are huge question marks for his long term future.

75. Tigers, Jace Jung, 2B: A hit-first second baseman with an unusual setup at the plate. Jung is one of the more decorated college bats in the class with above-average contact and power.

76. Cardinals, Tink Hence, RHP: Undersized righthander with big stuff, Hence broke out in the Florida State League showing a plus fastball+slider combo with loads of strikeouts. Relief risk due to size and limited exposure to the second time through the order.

77. Guardians, Tanner Bibee, RHP: Bibee added velocity to his arsenal following the draft and exploded in his 2022 debut. Four pitch-mix with the abiility to generate whiffs and command the zone. Another strong pitching prospect from the Guardians pitching factory.

78. Red Sox, Ceddanne Rafaela, OF/SS: Standout defensive infielder moved to centerfield and transformed into elite defender in the outfield. Plus bat-to-ball skills, optomized launch angles and speed on the bases allow Rafaela to overcome hyper-aggressive plate approach.

79. Nationals, Brady House, SS: Former prep-circuit superstar endured injury-plagued 2022. hit .326/.408/.449 over first 21 games before struggling upon IL return hitting .230/.303/.299 before returning to the IL with a bacl strain. Explosive, powerful athlete with superstar upside but risk.

80. Mets, Jett Williams, SS: Strong feel to hit and plus speed give him a strong foundation on which to attempt to add power; diminutive but plays with energy and chip on his shoulder.

81. Reds, Christian Encarnacion-Strand, 1B/3B: Combination of bat-to-ball skills and power led to very loud 2022. Hit .304/.368/.587 with 32 HR across High-A and Double-A, finishing second in MiLB with 114 RBI. Big power upside potential in Great American Ballpark but hyper-aggressive approach lurks.

82. Cubs, Kevin Alcantara, OF: Another athletic Cubs outfielder with plus power (see also: Canario, Alexander), the jewel of the Anthony Rizzo trade needs to improve his swing decisions if he wants to reach his lofty ceiling.

83. Reds, Edwin Arroyo, SS: Arroyo enjoyed an excellent debut in the Cal League hitting .316/.385/.514 before the trade to the Reds. Struggled post trade but combination of bat-to-ball skills, speed and the defensive skills to earn everyday playing time. Could grow into average power.

84. Yankees, Austin Wells, C: The bat has always carried the profile but Wells has worked on his defensive game enough to appear capable of being a regular. Good swing decisions and an optimized lefthanded swing plane should work well at Yankee stadium, though likely not until 2024.

85. Dodgers, Andy Pages, OF: Long lauded for huge power and a huge arm, the Dominican ouutfielder didn’t dominate AA as much as he did High A the year before (although he did improve his contact rate against the tougher pitching). Still, 30 HR power seems a given, despite a slight dip in his exit velocities from 2021.

86. Padres, Samuel Zavala, OF: Promoted to Lake Elsinore two weeks after he turned 18. the Venezuelan outfielder shows excellent plate discipline with exit velocities for his age portending plus power from a corner.

87. Brewers, Brice Turang, SS: Known for defense, hit tool, speed, and IQ, the biggest question mark has been the power. Surprisingly though, in both 2021 and 2022. Turang’s 90th percentile exit velocities have been right around average for hitters his age (though facing upper level competition).

88. Blue Jays, Addison Barger, SS/3B: Barger took a mature step forward in 2022. improving on most hitting metrics from the year prior. There is still a lot of swing and miss but the contact frequency and quality suggests at least an average major league hitter. Reasonable SS defense with a strong arm means he can (and probably will) play anywhere on the dirt.

89. Dodgers, Michael Busch, 2B: MLB-ready three-true outcome hitter will get a boost in OBP leagues where his skills will play up. Combination of power and on-base skills but 25 years old with plenty of strikeouts.

90. Astros, Yainer Diaz, C: Strong bat-to-ball skills and power with an aggressive approach, likely part-time catcher with the ability to handle first base. Diaz has a rare combination of barrel accuracy and plus juice. Chance to keep catcher eligibility long-term.

91. Nationals, Robert Hassell III, OF: The results haven’t matched the expectations yet. The hit tool is geared toward spraying line drives all over the field but the exit velocities continuing to lag his peers suggest an uphill path to average power. The IQ, speed and defense gives him a high major league floor.

92. Twins, Edouard Julien, 2B: First player in over 25 years to have consecutive seasons minor league seasons with .400 OBP, 15+ HR and 15+ stolen bases, helium is up after a strong AFL showing and a 40-man roster addition. Julien should debut in 2022.

93. Pirates, Henry Davis, C: Likely passed on the catcher depth chart by Endy Rodriguez, Davis still mashes. Injuries have recently felled him (he was plunked by over 20 pitches in 2022 – likely sapping his HR output) but the powerful bat will play no matter what the former 1st overall draft pick’s defensive home ends up being.

94. Rays, Mason Auer, OF: Freaky athlete drafted out of the JUCO ranks, Auer is a tooled up centerfielder with above-average power and plus speed. Major power and speed upside with at least average plate skills.

95. Rays, Carson Williams, SS: Plus defender at shortstop with excellent on-base abilities and plus power upside. Below-average bat-to-ball skills and strikeout issues provide some risk. High upside shortstop could explode with improved bat-to-ball skills.

96. Cubs, Brennen Davis, OF: Back injuries robbed Davis of a return to form in 2022. once considered one of the best prospects in baseball Davis is still young at 23 years old. A full healthy 2023 could push Davis up this ranking and into the major leagues. Another injury could push him off the list.

97. Guardians, Brayan Rocchio, SS: With no grades below average, Rocchio is looking like he can entrench himself as an average MLB middle infielder with 15 to 20 HR and 10 to 12 stolen bases.

98. White Sox, Oscar Colás, OF: Hulking slugger with plus-plus power and bat-to-ball skills but an overly aggressive approach. Should compete for right field job in camp with plus-plus throwing arm in the outfield and high-minors success in 2022.

99. Mariners, Harry Ford, C: Unusually strong athlete for a catcher, like Daulton Varsho, Ford has the potential to be an impact offensive player with multi-position versatility. Hit .274/.425/.438 over 104 Low-A games, OBP skills with power upside.

100. Yankees, Spencer Jones, OF: Blessed with unusual athleticism for a player his size and natural plus raw power, Jones has been one of the higher helium prospects post-draft. If it all clicks for Jones he has the ability to develop into a fantasy star.
