Top 100 Prospects Ranks

Published

on


 

What’s better than a top 100 list? The answer is always nothing, unless it’s a top 150 or 200 or how about 500? This is my top 100, from my top 500 overall fantasy prospect list which you can find over with the ITL Army. Link below. My ranks are updated every month with the Army, and every two weeks in-season. There are other added features like age, projected start date, first year player ranked tab and 2018 draft and international info.

Rank Name Team Position
1 Ronald Acuna ATL OF
2 Vladimir Guerrero Jr TOR 3B/1B
3 Shohei Ohtani LAA SP/1B
4 Eloy Jimenez CHW 1B/OF
5 Victor Robles WAS OF
6 Fernando Tatis Jr SD SS/3B
7 Bo Bichette TOR SS/3B
8 Gleyber Torres NYY SS
9 Nick Senzel CIN 3B/SS
10 Kyle Tucker HOU OF

Vlad Jr vs Acuna is razor thin for me. Robles may be the best deal of this top 10. This is a class of elite Shortstops.

 

Rank Name Team Position
11 Michael Kopech CHW SP
12 Walker Buehler LAD SP
13 Forrest Whitley HOU SP
14 Brendan Rodgers COL SS
15 Royce Lewis MIN SS/OF
16 Alex Reyes STL SP
17 Luis Robert CHW OF
18 Lewis Brinson MIA OF
19 Juan Soto WAS OF
20 Brent Honeywell TB SP

I’m not afraid to take a SP in the second, but I will move through my list if I already own one. I won’t take a SP with my round 1 and 2. I love these OF’s.

 

Rank Name Team Position
21 MacKenzie Gore SD SP
22 Scott Kingery PHI 2B
23 Taylor Trammell CIN OF
24 Michael Chavis BOS 3B/1B
25 Jesus Sanchez TB OF
26 Willie Calhoun TEX 2B/LF
27 Leody Taveras TEX OF
28 Estevan Florial NYY OF
29 Keston Hiura MLW 2B
30 Willy Adames TB SS

I openly have Chavis and Sanchez higher than most anyone. You won’t need to take them in the top 30 based on most ranks, so draft accordingly. Trammell and Florial have the biggest tools here.

 

Rank Name Team Position
31 Jordon Adell LAA OF
32 Heliot Ramos SF OF
33 Hunter Greene CIN SP
34 Carter Kieboom WAS SS
35 Austin Meadows PIT OF
36 Austin Riley ATL 3B
37 Triston McKenzie CLE SP
38 Sixto Sanchez PHI SP
39 JP Crawford PHI SS/3B
40 Austin Hays BAL OF

Adell and Ramos may be from the most recent draft, but don’t sleep on them. Kieboom is underrated in most circles. Riley is going to be a stud. I have Hays a bit lower than most, but pending needs I would go higher if needed.

 

Rank Name Team Position
41 Franklin Barreto OAK SS/2B
42 Francisco Mejia CLE C/3B
43 Miguel Andujar NYY 3B
44 Kevin Maitan LAA SS
45 Ryan McMahon COL 1B/2B/3B
46 Alex Verdugo LAD OF
47 Jahmai Jones LAA OF
48 Luis Urias SD 2B
49 AJ Puk OAK SP
50 Mitch Keller PIT SP

Andujar keeps moving up. I haven’t given up on Maitan, but you won’t have to take him top 50. Jones and Urias I love as picks here. Puk and Keller are solid buys if you have no pitchers yet.

 

Rank Name Team Position
51 Luiz Gohara ATL SP/RP
52 Kyle Lewis SEA OF
53 Dustin Fowler OAK OF
54 Brandon Marsh LAA OF
55 Adrian Morejon SD SP
56 Michel Baez SD SP/RP
57 Kyle Wright ATL SP
58 Monte Harrison MIA OF
59 Nick Pratto KC 1B
60 Keibert Ruiz LAD C

Solid group of pitchers that I am ok with mixing around. Marsh and Harrison could jump many ranks this coming year. I am very high on Pratto, but I think he’ll be special.

 

Rank Name Team Position
61 Yordan Alvarez HOU 1B/OF
62 Brendan McKay TB 1B/SP
63 Jorge Mateo OAK SS
64 Wander Franco TB SS
65 Colton Welker COL 3B
66 Anthony Alford TOR OF
67 Jesse Winker CIN OF
68 Jon Duplantier AZ SP
69 Jack Flaherty STL SP
70 Jake Bauers TB 1B/OF

I am not super aggressive with this set of guys. McKay, Welker, Alford and Duplantier are probably my favorites.

 

Rank Name Team Position
71 Adam Haseley PHI OF
72 Evan White SEA 1B/OF
73 Brent Rooker MIN 1B/OF
74 Austin Beck OAK OF
75 Mike Soroka ATL SP
76 Jay Groome BOS SP
77 Justus Sheffield NYY SP
78 DJ Peters LAD OF
79 Bubba Thompson TEX OF
80 Dylan Cease CHW SP

This is filled with 2017 draftees. I really like the first four. Groome, Soroka and Sheffield could be steals as far as getting an ace later in a draft.

 

Rank Name Team Position
81 Pavin Smith AZ 1B/OF
82 Alex Faedo DET SP
83 Franklin Perez DET SP
84 Andres Gimenez NYM SS
85 Shed Long CIN 2B
86 Alec Hansen CHW SP
87 Bobby Bradley CLE 1B
88 Nick Gordon MIN SS/2B
89 Chance Adams NYY SP
90 Cal Quantrill SD SP

Gimenez and Long are underrated in fantasy circles, don’t sleep on them. Faedo, Perez and Smith are a few I’d target here.

 

Rank Name Team Position
91 Esteury Ruiz SD 2B
92 Jeter Downs CIN SS
93 Akil Baddoo MIN OF
94 Tristen Lutz MLW OF
95 Gabriel Arias SD SS
96 Isan Diaz MIA SS/2B
97 Joey Wentz ATL SP
98 Yadier Alvarez LAD SP
99 Jhailyn Ortiz PHI OF/ 1B
100 Wander Javier MIN SS

I love this set of players, so much so that I would be willing to push up a round pending how you’ve drafted. Ruiz, Downs, Baddoo, Lutz and Arias are buzz guys, but should be owned…maybe even two of them.

 

No top 100 list should be taken as a blueprint, but more as guide to get you where you need to be. Who you’ve drafted, who you own and what your goals are can change the structure of how you draft. There are many more great guys that missed this list, so check out my top 500 if you need to go deep.
