Power Ranking the Top 16 MLB Prospects Dealt at the Deadline

Pomeranz is plenty talented, but he's not the number one guy on this list.

Every year it happens, and for some reason, we're always surprised when it does.

Prospects that teams considered untouchable on Thursday, somehow become very tradeable on Saturday. It happened last year with Justin Smoak, and the year before with Brett Wallace.

This year's unfortunate casualties include four of the top pitching prospects in the game: Jarred Cosart, Zack Wheeler, Alex White and Drew Pomeranz.

But that talented quartet isn't the only talent that was on the move this weekend. 

And while the Astros seemingly scored a big-time coup, landing not only Cosart, Brett Oberholtzer and Jonathan Singleton, but also the talented, if inconsistent Henry Sosa, teams like Washington and Kansas City also had great deadline moves.

And let's not forget the major improvements Colorado made to their farm system. They scored possibly the biggest trade in the past decade, acquiring two pitchers who have front-line starter potential.

So, without further ado, and with the trade deadline finally in our rear-view, let's take a look at the top 16 prospects who were dealt during the past few weeks and evaluate what their new futures hold in store for them.
