Mike Rosenbaum's Official Year-End Top 100 MLB Prospects
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
OF Byron Buxton made a lasting impression this year in his full-season debut, posting a .944 OPS with 49 extra-base hits, 55 stolen bases and an impressive 105/76 K/BB ratio in 125 games.

In the past, my top prospect rankings were published either during the offseason or in the spring, but never following the conclusion of the minor league season.

Well, that’s about to change in a big way. 

As is the case with all my rankings, any prospect who has exhausted rookie eligibility (130 at-bats or 50 innings) in the major leagues has been excluded. But unlike the midseason rankings I put out in July, this one features players who will retain their rookie status heading into 2014 after receiving their first taste of the major leagues this year. 

Rather than putting together a standard top 50, we’ve decided to expand our coverage to include the best 100 prospects. After all, who doesn’t love write-ups on 50 additional prospects?

And with the Arizona Fall League set to commence during the second week of October, it’s only appropriate to first check in on baseball’s best young players.

So, I hope everyone enjoys Prospect Pipeline’s end-of-season top 100 prospects.
