Top 100 MLB Prospects For 2016

Top 100 MLB Prospects For 2016
Buxton, the Twins' number 1 prospect (and MLB's #2 overall prospect still), has a surplus amount of speed. Not only that, he has brought his bat around. His strong arm is going to create a lot of outfield assists for this kid in the future. Despite some AB with the Twins in 2015 he held his rookie of the year eligibility for 2016.

Welcome to my favorite blog entry of the year, my Top 100 Major League Baseball Prospect list for 2016.  Building on last year’s list, we once again look at the top prospects in baseball right now. 

The list doesn’t necessarily focus on player’s impact this season as quite a few of these players are years away from the Majors.

Things to clear up on my list eligibility is that the player cannot surpass their rookie limits at the Major League level and will not include international signings of players who have experience at their countries top level.

A couple things to keep an eye out for as you look through the list, the Braves, Dodgers, Red Sox, Phillies and Cubs remain loaded and take a look at all the shortstop prospects.  There are 19 shortstops on this list and that’s after we saw the debuts of Carlos Correa and Francisco Lindor last season.  The shortstop era is coming…

For the list, you’ll find the player’s name, their position/team/and last year’s ranking for this list.
