BP Top 50

BP Prospect Staff

Sometimes the debate surrounding two prospects is such that it deserves to be aired.

Within the daunting task of trying to narrow down the entire prospect landscape into a list of fifty players, there are often debates that form within the umbrella of the overall list discussion. Occasionally planned, the best debates form organically, arising from a split decision that can result in a spirited (read: heated) discussion process. It’s part of what makes this process so interesting and fun. You’re never quite sure where or why the debates are going to pop up until they do.

BP Top 50

BP Prospect Staff

Corey Seager tops our list.

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.

The Outcomes review MLB teams' performances to date and draft their own teams.

Happy Fourth of July! We’re mixing it up a bit this week and going through the MLB teams, talking about the surging Orioles (team of destiny!) and why nobody wants to root for the Royals any more. We draft all 30 teams trying to get the most victories at the end of the season, and one of the Outcomes has a peculiar strategy in place. Tune in to see which one!

BP Top 50

Jeff Moore and Tucker Blair

In the process of ranking the Top 50, the question of who the top catcher in the minors was came up.

Within our Top 50, there was a legitimate debate about who is the game’s top catching prospect between Rangers prospect Jorge Alfaro and Pirates prospect Reese McGuire (apologies to Kyle Schwarber fans, but while there are many who believe he can catch part-time, there are few who believe he’ll be an everyday player behind the plate). It’s a legitimate debate about who teams prefer, as Chris Crawford pointed out when he Polled the Industry. Tucker Blair and I have seen both prospects, yet come in on opposite sides of the debate.–Jeff Moore

A look at a bunch of prospects who fell short of Top-50 status for one reason or another

The top 50 list we debuted today was the result of a process that included dozens of iterations over a month of discussions. Over the course of these debates, which varied in degrees of tension and courtesy, upwards of 100 names were mentioned, discussed and dissected in the name of narrowing things down to the 50 players most worthy. Some made initial versions and dropped off while others never quite made the cut, but all were worthy of discussion. With no attempt to rank them in any order besides the alphabet, these are those players.

The Top 50 Fantasy Prospects

29

Bret Sayre

With rookie eligibility as the cutoff, preseason no. 3 Carlos Correa rises to the top.

The middle of the season is a wonderful time to turn the reflection you’ve likely been doing over the last month into action. It’s the time to decide whether you really want to push in to go for it this year, or sell off some pieces for 2016 and beyond. It’s the time to look at the standings and see where you can gain the most points over the last three months.

Monday Morning Ten Pack: Candidates for the Top 101

2

BP Prospect Staff

This week's Ten Pack looks at prospects who could wind up on the Top 101 next year.

Amed Rosario, SS, New York Mets (High-A Port St. Lucie)
After an aggressive placement to start 2015saw Rosario skip Low-A and head right to the Florida State League, the 19-year-old shortstop's talent has been on display throughout the first half of the season. As the no. 78 prospect in our off-season Top 101, a case could be made for including him within the last couple slots of the just released mid-season Top 50, but regardless this prospect's stock has jumped forward as we hit the midpoint of the season.

Rosario is currently a top 101 prospect in the game, and barring some kind of unforeseen circumstances will be a shoe-in for our list this coming off-season. So, why highlight him? He is an interesting case study because of how advanced he is, with a good dose of physical development likely to come. Standing 6-foot-2, Rosario currently is on the wiry/thin side. Though the expectation isn't that he'll suddenly morph into a monster, strength is going to come in time, and with strength there's going to be an enhancement to the overall offensive game.
