Baseball America released its annual “Top 100 Prospects” list today and as always it’s a must-read, especially since it includes for every player scouting grades for each of the five tools.

Rangers shortstop Jurickson Profar tops the list, followed by Orioles right-hander Dylan Bundy, Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras, Rays outfielder Wil Myers, and Marlins right-hander Jose Fernandez.

Last year’s Baseball America top five was Bryce Harper, Matt Moore, Mike Trout, Yu Darvish, and Julio Teheran. Did any of those guys do anything noteworthy in 2012?

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.

Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.

Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.

The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
