Top prospects in each organization, accounting for the winter's action.

And so we've reached the official end of the Top 10s season.

After an offseason of moves, some teams' top 10s need tweaking. So, to answer all the many questions we get asking where [X] would rank in his new system, we've updated the lists where applicable and written supplemental scouting reports on each player who is new to a list—either by changing organizations or by taking over a spot vacated by another player. Any teams not listed here have seen no changes to their top 10s. All teams' rankings, along with our Top 101 and organizational rankings, can be found here.
