Lucas Giolito tops our updated list of MLB prospects

Now that the trade deadline has passed, draft picks have signed and the international signing day is behind us, let’s take a look at the top 200 prospects. There has been plenty of movement since our May rankings, per usual, some of which we anticipated (Eloy Jimenez and Triston McKenzie soaring up the charts), and some that caught all prognosticators by surprise (Tyler O’Neill and Dylan Cozens’ power surges). Today’s article will show you our top 200 prospects that are currently employed by major league organizations, but haven’t yet met our qualifications to graduate the majors. Below, you will also find a table that displays where the graduates would have ranked if they were eligible for the list. Next week, check in to see where amateur stars would rank and where international prospects would rank if they were signed today. In the near-future, I’ll cover the top farm organizations, bold prospect projections, prospects questions and answers and finally an explanation on why we are higher on certain prospects than other sites. If you have any prospect questions, tweet me @BobbyFantasyPro. Enjoy!
