Will 20-year-old Jurickson Profar receive top-prospect honors?

At long last, after a busy offseason of blockbuster trades involving high-ceiling prospects, spring training is finally upon us. However, in the prospect realm, the arrival of pitchers and catchers also means that the ranking season is underway.

There’s nothing easy about putting together a top-50 or top-100 prospect list; it’s admittedly a massive undertaking. After all, the nature of ranking prospects is completely subjective—as it always will be. Furthermore, it’s imperative to keep in mind that all of these young players are constantly evolving. Every prospect is uniquely different and deserves to be evaluated with an open mind.

Although I will always stand by my rankings, I also expect to be wrong about many of the players on the list. In reality, it’s not a matter of being “right” or “wrong” about a prospect’s development and future potential. I’m sure that there will be numerous players left off my list who excel in 2013 and finish toward the top of the end-of-year rankings.

However, that’s all part of the process. If anything, underestimating or overlooking a prospect’s upside serves as a valuable learning experience and tool for future scouting work and player analysis.

For those who are interested in talking about my rankings or anything else prospect-related, please feel free to reach out to me at any time on Twitter (@GoldenSombrero), or just shoot me an email.

Without further delay, here’s a look at Prospect Pipeline’s Top 100 prospects headed into spring training.
