When I originally published my preseason top 50 prospects list on March 26, I mentioned there would be a midseason update following the All-Star break. Now, it’s important to note that this is not a ranking of the top 50 prospect performances this season, but rather an updated and adjusted version of my preseason rankings.
Since the first rankings were released, there have been numerous players that have officially gained rookie status: Matt Moore (No. 1), Bryce Harper (No. 2), Mike Trout (No. 3), Jesus Montero (No. 12), Devin Mesoraco (No. 22), Jarrod Parker (No. 31) and Yonder Alonso (No. 48).
Furthermore, as with most midseason top prospects rankings, any player who is on an active big-league roster after the All-Star break has been omitted from this list.
Furthermore, I decided not to include any of the 2012 draft picks or international signees on this list, as there's simply too small of a sample to make any definite rankings.
Having said that, I present to you: Prospect Pipeline’s Midseason Top 50 Prospects Update.
