2016 Top 100 Prospects

2016 Prospect Ranking LogoWe wrap up our prospect rankings with a look at the top 100 minor league players; a culmination of all the rankings submitted this season by myself and fellow prospect junkie Andy Germani. It’s been a pleasure doing these rankings over the past 10 weeks and appreciate you coming back each week for more! As always, our rankings were consolidated to give you our final site rankings, but you can see where Andy and I ranked them in the table as well. These are fantasy rankings, and I remind you that Andy and I are not scouts, just simply heavy followers of baseball prospects. We hope you enjoy the rankings!

  1. In my 20 team Dynasty league, we’ve each got 15 prospect slots….and yet I’ve got 19 guys on this list, 12 of which are in the top 50. The future is looking bright!

  2. I would simply like to thank the assembled Assemblymen who assembled this assemblage of rankings!
    Semien-antics aside, thank you for your consistently insightful analysis, informed projections and entertaining writing.
