2014 MLB Draft Rankings: Nos. 1-100

by Allan Simpson


2014 MLB Draft Preview Content

Please note that the players are ranked on the basis of raw talent, with minor consideration given to any signability issues—or, in more cases, possible injuries
that might impact a player’s standing in the draft.

Does perceived proximity to the majors comes into play? For instance a pitcher with #4 upside that can be pitching in the show next year might be more valuable than a pitcher with a #2 ceiling that would be 4 years away.

In addition to Beede, the Jays drafted a bunch of other guys in 2011 who are listed in the top 70. Did they have a shot at signing any of them, or were they total long shots?

It suggests a) their scouts had a great year identifying talent b) the scouts and front office did a poor job of assessing signability and/or c) they were signing guys the 'knew' were unlikely to sign, but hoped to get a break.

Does anyone have any insight into their process?

or... e) filling slots with long shots to allow allocation of cap funds to be spent on more serious picks while still having some opportunity on signing the long shot player to a more financially advantageous contract one year earlier. If we look at players who eventually sign and were drafted once or more times prior to signing, I tend to recall that the eventual signing club is not usually one of the previous "feeler" signing organizations.

Considering the research done by Rany Jazayerli about draft age, I think it would be helpful to see age on draft day as a column.

This, as it is, is wonderful, though.
