At the MLB season’s halfway point, and in the wake of the deadline to sign draftees, I put together an update of the top 50 prospects in baseball, given that a number of players from my top 100 rankings , which came out in January, have graduated to the majors. In ranking these players, I tend to weigh upside or ceiling more heavily than proximity to the majors. The list includes a mixture of players as high as Double-A or Triple-A as well as a few who signed in recent weeks who have yet to make their professional debuts. Players who have already passed the cutoff for rookie of the year eligibility are not included here, nor anyone currently on a major league roster. Note: I use the 20-80 grading scale in these comments to avoid overuse of the terms “average” and “above average” across the player comments. On that scale, a grade of 50 equals major league average, 55 is above average, 60 is plus, 45 is fringe or below average, and so on.
