Top MLB Prospects (Midseason Top 200 Worldwide)

Yordan Alvarez looks like a future star for Houston

Now that most of the players selected in the MLB draft have signed along with this year’s international class, it’s time to dive into the updated prospect rankings. As usual, players who have lost their rookie eligibility are graduated off of the list, but don’t worry, I’ll tell you where they would rank were they still eligible. Likewise, I’ll tell you about some of the biggest risers and a handful of the international and amateur names that you won’t see on any other list.

Perhaps this is the first time you’ve seen this list. If that is, in fact, the case, let me fill you in on what makes it different from other lists:

  • This is based strictly on projected future fantasy output
  • MLB ballparks come into play as a result, as does a player’s path to playing time
  • Fielding has no impact on my rankings other than how it influences a player’s likelihood to win a job in the future
  • College, high school and even international players who have not made the leap to America are on this list

There have been some terrific rookies this season, but among those who have graduated from prospect lists, only five would make my top 10 if they still qualified. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Eloy Jimenez would be #1 and #2 ahead of Jo Adell with Fernando Tatis Jr. coming in #4. Pete Alonso would be right behind Tatis with Chris Paddack slotting in 10th right behind Luis Robert.
