Now that the 2012 MLB Draft has been completed, a new crop of prospects will attempt to become their team's next new rising star.
While this past draft was deemed to be not nearly as deep as the previous year, talented players were still out there to be had, and some of those players will find themselves under the spotlight for the next few years as they creep up top prospect lists.
This year has already seen a number of stars who were on the preseason top 100 prospect list (according to Baseball America) make their MLB debuts, and there will likely be more before the year is done.
We will attempt to re-rank the top 50 prospects right now, and the list will include some players who were just drafted last week.
The list will not include young stars who have been promoted and logged time in the majors this year, only players who are on the cusp of MLB stardom or prospects working their way toward that goal. We will also include players who logged time in the majors last year, but have yet to work their way back to the big leagues in 2012.
