BP Top 50

The Best Midseason Prospects

by BP Prospect Staff


It has been, and continues to be, our goal to provide first-hand information from the field, with eyewitness reports and narrative from industry sources observing the talent from the shadows. Our team has spent the first half of this season delving into and dissecting the minors, laying eyes on big name prospects, and unearthing ones who will one day reach that notoriety.

During the construction of our list, we fiercely debated the merits of each position on the 50—and even the next 50—with each member of the team unleashing their artillery on the group discussion. The group shared their insight and arguments for each player, which helped paint the picture for each spot on the 50. As with all lists, it is important to remember that this is a snapshot in time, and development of prospects (and people) is rarely linear.

There are a few notes to discuss before diving into the top 50. First, we will not include recently promoted prospects (Carlos Correa) or players recently selected in the amateur draft. This list consists of the top talent in the minors from this season. I encourage everyone to read the secondary and tertiary pieces that will follow the top 50 list, as they will help to shed light and a different perspective on some of the trials and tribulations our team has tackled during the construction of this list. On that note, here are the top 50 prospects in the minors — Tucker Blair

1. SS Corey Seager (Dodgers)

Age: 21 (4/27/94)

Placement on pre-season 101: 7
