League Preview Series

The best young players in baseball.

Below, you will find the BP prospect team’s list of the top 175 players aged 25-and-under. Like any list, this ranking is a snapshot in time, and elements of it will become dated very quickly. Twenty-year-olds will grow into their power. UCLs will tear. That one slugger will never learn to hit a curveball. We don’t know those things today though, and the arrangement of this list reflects our perception of where these players stand right now in regards to a blend of their peak, and cumulative value.

David Dahl was a divisive figure in our Top 101, so we asked two Prospect Team members to explain what they see.

David Dahl’s inclusion on the Top 101 was a no-brainer. We all agree on that and you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who could make a case otherwise. His standing within the Top 101, and his ultimate value at the ML level, however, are up for debate. There’s very little to quibble over when it comes to Dahl’s sparkling defensive ability, arm strength, and athleticism but as is the case with many prospects, what you think of the player as a whole is heavily dependent on what you make of his offensive projection. Further, there are some non-tool-related elements to evaluate here that may or may not play a role in Dahl’s development. Without further ado, Mark Anderson and Jeffrey Paternostro debate Colorado Rockies center fielder, David Dahl.

Notes on prospects who improved their stocks with strong performances in the international winter leagues.

In most cases, fans are discouraged from putting much stock in winter league performance and/or statistics, but each year there are certain players whose performance merits attention. A handful of players will make up for lost time or build on the successes of the previous season, and it is those players that prospect hounds should focus on as spring training approaches and players look to take the next step in their development.
