MLB.com releases its top-100 prospects list

29 Comments

It’s top-prospects season.  The two lists I watch for each year are Jonathan Mayo’s at MLB.com and Keith Law’s at ESPN.  Mayo just came out with his.

I was mildly surprised that he has Matt Moore in the top spot ahead of Bryce Harper. But only mildly. When you strip away the hype over Harper, you realize that Moore has already done way more at higher levels and that an ace lefty is more valuable at this point than a big but unproven bat.  People’s mileage varies with this stuff.

Good interface, BTW, MLB.com.  You can side-scroll through the whole list of 100 really easily and go from player to player without full page reloads as opposed to having to go through a big slide show or something.

Enjoy, prospect hounds.
