The 2017 Prospect 361 Top 10 Prospects for the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds have been updated this morning.

Here are eight prospects ready to break out in 2017…

I’ve added the 361 2017 Top 10 @prospects list for MIL and PIT here

Here’s a pretty good @prospects site with quite a few scouting reports: http://www.todaysknuckleball.com/al/oakland-athletics/pleskoff-scouting-report-franklin-barreto/

The Yankees Top 10 Prospects for 2017 has been released by BA, headlined by Gleyber Torres. Scouting report here.

Will be keeping track of all Top @prospects lists here.

Dillon Tate wasn’t included, but scouting report here.

This is an interesting report on unknown Reds prospect Ariel Hernandez.

Andrew Benintendi (not Moncada) named #1 BOS @prospects for 2017 by BA. And they slap on a 70/60 Hit/Power grade.


ICYMI: 2017 Top Prospect lists from FanGraphs have been posted to the @prospects folder for the Giants, Diamondbacks, and Padres so far.

If you haven’t checked out Today’s Knuckleball, it has a good feed of regular prospect scouting reports from Bernie Pleskoff. He really likes BOS Michael Kopech…

Added new 2017 lists today for CLE, CHW (BA) and the brand new FanGraphs Top 21 @prospects list for LAD, which includes some glowing reports for Yadier Alvarez, Cody Bellinger, and Alex Verdugo.

Gleyber Torres looking more and more like a top tier SS prospect stud for Yankees:

Added a bunch of recent prospect lists, including new Top 10 lists from BP, MinorLeagueBall, and Prospect361 for the Atlanta Braves, where Dansby Swanson is the headliner.

Another great @prospects resource: you should follow Sam Dykstra on Twitter. Writes some great stuff (“Toolshed”) for MiLB

Arizona Fall League Top 25 @prospects headlined by Gleyber Torres, Cody Bellinger, and Eloy Jimenez: http://m.mlb.com/news/article/209388294/arizona-fall-leagues-top-25-prospects-in-2016/

Added the Top 18 CLE prospects to the folder today (from FanGraphs), as well as the 2017 Top 75 @prospects from BHQ

More ink on the top 20 AFL prospects of 2016: http://www.baseballamerica.com/minors/2016-arizona-fall-league-top-20-prospects/#VyiCFKjLZwpgoIvR.97

I’ve added recent @prospects lists for WAS, PHI, HOU, and STL. Can find them here.

Which prospect would you take overall?

  • J.P. Crawford
  • Alex Reyes
  • Victor Robles

0 voters

It’s close between Reyes and Robles. But Reyes can help right now and there’s still another 1-2 seasons for Robles.


If you like prospects, these Organizational Reviews by 2080Baseball are very good, very deep.
