Mike Rosenbaum's Official Top 50 MLB Prospects, Midseason Edition
At long last, Prospect Pipeline’s Midseason Top 50 Prospects has arrived.
If it feels as though it’s been a long time since we published the preseason rankings, well, that’s probably because it has been a long time—a little more than three months to be exact. Since then, many of the previously top-ranked prospects have graduated to the major leagues while others have simply fallen off the radar.
Compared to lists published before the start of the season, this ranking is specifically geared toward highlighting the future of baseball. Therefore, any prospect who has exhausted rookie eligibility (130 at-bats or 50 innings) in the major leagues has been excluded. Similarly, prospects who have retained eligibility but are currently on the 25-man roster (or playing in the major leagues) have also been omitted from the ranking.
As one might have inferred from reading the above paragraph, the midseason ranking is absolutely loaded with new names and faces.
With that said, I hope everyone enjoys Prospect Pipeline’s Midseason Top 50 Prospects.
