Questions on Corey Ray, Edwin Diaz's big move, and a trio of struggling youngsters highlight this week's mailbag.

Q: When is the last time we have seen a college hitter like Corey Ray have over 30 SBs, flirt with a .300 ISO and K less than 12% of the time? That package might be unprecedented. Who’s the best MLB comp? Where is his most likely landing spot; still Braves? – Imari L.

Answers on Richie Shaffer, a slew of pitching prospects, and the difference in scouting rookie ball versus Double-A.

Q: Is Richie Shaffer expected in the majors this year? There doesn’t seem to be much in his way and he’s off to a strong start at Triple-A (again). – Carpoon

You have questions, we have answers.

Q: I don’t mean to beat a dead horse, but what the hell should we think of Trevor Story? Specifically, how does he fit in with the current crop of excellent SS prospects (J.P. Crawford, Corey Seager, Oswaldo Arcia, Dansby Swanson, etc.)? – Ryan C.

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.
