Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Trea Turner, Orlando Arcia, David Dahl, Adalberto Mejia, and Jordan Stephens.

Prospect of the Day:

Trea Turner, SS, Washington Nationals (Triple-A Syracuse): 5-for-8, 2 R, 2 SB, 1 K.
Turner now has 20 hits in his dozen games, and he’s not just dinking and dunking; he’s hitting the ball with authority to all parts of the field. With a plus hit tool, double-plus speed, and competent defense at shortstop, it shouldn’t be long until we see him hitting at or near the top of the Nationals lineup. He should have been to begin the year, however, so it remains to be seen when he’ll get that chance. Enjoy him while you can, Syracuse.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Ian Happ, Anderson Espinoza, Ke'Bryan Hayes, Tyler Mahle, and Kyle McGowin.

Prospect of the Day:

Ian Happ, 2B, Chicago Cubs (High-A Myrtle Beach): 4-5, 2 HR, 2 R, 4 RBI, SB, K.
Oh nothing, Happ just added over 300 points to his OPS in one night, no big deal. The long balls were the first two of the season, and he did all of his damage hitting left-handed. The right-handed stroke hasn’t come around yet (one for 13, five strikeouts), but we hung dual 6s on his hit tool for a reason. The base-running instincts have shown well thus far in three successful stolen base efforts as well.

Christopher Crawford

Notes on prospects who stood out over the weekend, including Tyler Glasnow, Trea Turner, Alex Meyer, Max Povse, Sean Manaea, and Mike Papi.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Tyler Glasnow, RHP, Pittsburgh Pirates (Triple-A Indianapolis): 5 IP, 4 H, 0 BB, 9 K.
After a shaky spring training, Glasnow has given up just two earned runs in his first 10 innings while striking out 15 and—most importantly—walking just three. No, the command will never be elite, but it doesn’t have to be; when you’re pumping plus-plus fastballs at a downhill plane and a wipeout curveball, it only has to be average. His upside rivals that of any pitcher in baseball not named Lucas Giolito, and he’s going to miss a lot of bats at the big-league level. Soon.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Trea Turner, Dansby Swanson, Blake Snell, and Domingo Acevedo.

Prospect of the Day:

Trea Turner, SS, Washington Nationals (Triple-A Syracuse): 5-6, BB, R, RBI, SB.
The Nats opted for the extra year of club control with Turner by anointing Danny Espinosa their Opening Day shortstop, but Turner’s done his best through four games to make the club regret that decision. His five hits in yesterday’s doubleheader gave him six hits and four walks (to go along with three successful thieveries) in his first 13 plate appearances in the International League. At this rate, it won’t be long, my pretties.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Jorge Mateo, Steven Moya, and Mallex Smith.

Welcome back, prospects. We missed you all terribly.

It's still Corey Seager at the top, just as it was in January, but on the eve of the season we're pleased to now allow you to read the prospect capsules that originally ran in the BP Annual.

Previous Rankings: 2015 | 2014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 | 2009 | 2008 | 2007

Minor League editor Craig Goldstein chatted about the Top 101 (Transcript) | Full commentary for each player first appeared in Baseball Prospectus 2016.

While it's entirely likely you'll skip right ahead to the rankings, we wanted to provide some context for the list. As always, prospect lists are a snapshot in time—in this case mid-to-late December, when the list was compiled. It's possible a prospect's situation has changed since then, or that our evaluator's feelings on a prospect have changed, due to new information. Additionally, it's possible that a prospect ranks higher within his team list than he does here, and that's because the team Top 10s are spearheaded by individual authors who are informed by the BP Prospect Team and outside sources. The product below reflects a more rounded team effort, and thus there could be some inconsistencies between the Top 10s and the 101. These are not mistakes, but rather reflections of the different weight of opinions that drove the respective lists. Thank you, and enjoy —Craig Goldstein

1. Corey Seager, SS, Los Angeles Dodgers
Scouting Report: LINK
2015 Ranking: 7

It’s dangerous to read too much into a month’s worth of major-league plate appearances, especially when that month is September. Maybe Corey Seager took advantage of 40-man roster fodder and teams with one foot on the golf course to hit .337/.425/.561 as the 2015 season waned, but that’s pretty consistent with what he has done at every other stop in his professional career. He hits for average. He hits for power. He may not be a shortstop forever, as he is a very large human, but the bat is good enough to play anywhere. Regardless, Seager will be the Dodgers shortstop in 2016, and he may very well be the best one in the National League from the moment he steps foot on the field Opening Day.
