Razzball has just posted their mid-season Top 100 here. Pretty good list - any thoughts? Surprises?
More mid-season prospect lists set to debut around the All Star Break

1. Yoan Moncada, 2B White Sox | Age: 22 | .281/.383/.452 10 HR, 15 SB | Level : AAA – The top talent in the minors, switch hitter with plus speed, a 30 homer power ceiling, and a plus hit tool. Strikes out too much, so he’s not without risk. ETA: 2017

2. Victor Robles, OF Nationals | Age: 20 | .295/.387/.521 7 HR, 13 SB | Level : A+ – In 86 A+ games dating back to August of last season, Robles is hitting .291/.381/.488 with 8 homers and 22 steals. He turned 20 a little over a month ago, to put that statline in perspective. ETA:2019

3. Rafael Devers, 3B Red Sox | Age: 20 | .301/.364/.583 16 HR, 0 SB | Level : AA – All fields power, plus contact, and improving approach. Devers might be the most complete hitter in the minors right now. ETA: 2017

4. Eloy Jimenez, OF Cubs | Age: 20 | .270/.361/.500 7 HR, 0 SB | Level : A+ – Matches advanced plate approach with off the charts raw power. Looks like he has the makings of a triple crown threat, rare combo of low strikeout rate and boom-boom. ETA: 2019

5. Ronald Acuna, OF Braves | Age: 19 | .304/.357/.480 9 HR, 30 SB | Level : AA – Quite possibly my favorite prospect at the moment. Continues to improve by the day, and shows the signs of a superstar ceiling. Power, speed, contact, Acuna has it all. ETA: 2018

6. Brendan Rodgers, 2B/SS Rockies | Age: 20 | .379/.402/.642 12 HR, 2 SB | Level : AA – You’re dreaming on the next Troy Tulowitzki here. The grip it and rip it approach worked in Lancaster, but Hartford’s been a different story. Took a ball to the head last night. ETA:2018

7. Amed Rosario, SS Mets | Age: 21 | .315/.356/.463 7 HR, 14 SB | Level : AAA – He feels like the fantasy baseball version of imprisoned Nelson Mandela. For you Millennials he’s like Max B, but completely different. ETA: 2017

8. Kyle Tucker, OF Astros | Age: 20 | .282/.356/.550 16 HR, 17 SB | Level : AA – A true 5 category fantasy prospects who’s advanced for his age in every way. Wouldn’t shock me if we saw a September callup. ETA: 2018

9. Alex Reyes, RHP Cardinals | Age: 22 | No Stats Injured | Level : N/A – Not pitching this season as he recovers from Tommy John surgery. Now is the time to trade for him if you’re out of contention in dynasty. All-world ace upside. ETA: 2018

10. Lewis Brinson, OF Brewers | Age: 23 | .320/.400/.533 8 HR, 8 SB | Level : AAA – The debut was messy, but don’t hold it against him, there’s a star in there. Power and speed, with plus contact, 5 category stunner. ETA: 2017

11. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 3B Blue Jays | Age: 18 | .316/.403/.462 5 HR, 6 SB | Level : A – Reminds you of his father, and is already providing advanced production at a very young age (he turned 18 in March). Teaming up with Bo Bichette, to form the unstoppable duo “The Legacies”. ETA: 2019

12. Willie Calhoun, 2B/OF Dodgers | Age: 22 | .298/.343/.567 17 HR, 3 SB | Level : AAA – His .270 ISO to his 12.7% strikeout rate says it all. An elite hitter in a diminutive package, in most organizations he’d be 16 homers deep at the MLB level already. But alas, Concerns about his defense have held him down. The Dodgers will come to their senses…eventually. ETA: 2017

Usual suspects, I am not as high on Moncada as most. I am suprised Reyes was the only pitcher to crack the top 12. Btw Nice poll!


#3

Guerrero (but is he not listed in the poll)


#4

I think Vlad Jr. is going to be impact, but since I chose 2020 I left him off. Though there’s a good case he’s still a strong candidate to be a huge asset just a few seasons from now
