Who are MLB’s best prospects now that Harper, Trout, and Moore have graduated?

Coming into the season Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, and Matt Moore were the consensus top-three prospects in baseball, but now that they’re all in the majors to stay who are the minors’ most promising players?

Baseball America just released its midseason rankings update. It’s worth reading in full, so I won’t share too much, but Orioles right-hander Dylan Bundy holds the top spot after annihilating the competition in low Single-A to earn a promotion to high Single-A, and Rangers shortstop Jurickson Profar rates as the top position player.

Royals outfielder Wil Myers, who has been perhaps the most impressive hitter in the minors this season and is now one step from the majors at age 21, ranks third. Between Double-A and Triple-A he’s hit .328 with 27 homers and a 1.083 OPS in 82 games.
