Top 11 Prospects Are Coming!

by Kevin Goldstein

The World Series is a wonderful, thing, but here's a reminder that once the post-season ends, prospect ranking season begins. Once again, I'll be talking to scouts and various front office officials to rank each teams Top 20 prospects, with in-depth scouting reports on the Top 11 for each team. Last year, I began doing the teams in draft order, and that will continue this year. Thus, here's the order.

  1. Houston Astros
  2. Minnesota Twins
  3. Seattle Mariners
  4. Baltimore Orioles
  5. Kansas City Royals
  6. Chicago Cubs
  7. San Diego Padres
  8. Pittsburgh Pirates
  9. Florida Marlins
  10. Colorado Rockies
  11. Oakland Athletics
  12. New York Mets
  13. Chicago White Sox
  14. Cincinnati Reds
  15. Cleveland Indians
  16. Washington Nationals
  17. Toronto Blue Jays
  18. Los Angeles Dodgers
  19. Los Angeles Angels
  20. San Francisco Giants
  21. Atlanta Braves
  22. St. Louis Cardinals
  23. Boston Red Sox
  24. Tampa Bay Rays
  25. Arizona Diamondbacks
  26. Detroit Tigers
  27. Milwaukee Brewers
  28. Texas Rangers
  29. New York Yankees
  30. Philadelphia Phillies

I love doing these lists, and based on our traffic figures, you sure love reading them, so enjoy the World Series, and once it's over, you'll see how the Astros have improved through trades, and then get 29 more lists with scouting reports as the off-season rolls on.
