MLB Dodger top 30 prospect reveal
Always interesting to see how the prospects are ranked. MLB released their midseason top 30 today and it was cool. Worth clicking on with a small snapshot of each player.
This will be helpful when some of these prospects are traded and you can see how they were ranked at the time of the trade.
Some quick analysis. Cory Seager was ranked number one in preseason ranking but has graduated. Trayce Thompson was ranked 15 but has graduated. Zach Lee was traded, but even if he had not been traded, I’m sure he’d have fallen off the list. Chris Anderson went from 17 to not being rated. Anderson failed as a starter and hasn’t done a lot in relief yet to warrant being ranked. Angel German was ranked 27th and is now unranked.
Jumping into the ranking are the fruits of the 2016 draft with the top three picks all showing up between 11 – 15. Brock Stewart makes the biggest jump of players already in the organization. Brock moved from NR to 18th. Other NR players were Edwin Rios moving in at 30, and Keibert Ruiz popping in at 29.
Among those already ranked Willie Calhoun moves from 18th to 6th which was easily the biggest move up.
Urias, of course, is now number one, but I suspect that Cody Bellinger is a bit of a surprise at 2. Even with the injuries Yusniel Diaz has shown enough get moved up to 7th from 11.
