    The Cubs generally seem to be considered in the bottom tier of farm systems in MLB.

    (The Red Sox and Yankees were also shut out of this new top 100.)

    The Yankees always seem to have prospects that teams want even when their players are not ranked that highly.

    Not that MLB rankings are very credible but…. San Diego has 10 in the first 92 of their top prospects, 4 of the top 10 LHPs. So the rumors of them looking at Machado and Harper may have some merit. Even if half of their top 10 work out with some success or more, it looks they may need a headliner for their rebuilding very young team.

    Just to clarify, BA first announced this same top 30 on January 1 (see page 1 of this thread), but perhaps non-subscribers could only see the top 10. I am not sure about that, though.

    I believe they just announced the top 10 on Jan. 1. BA made the top 30 available online for the first time today.

    I just received my BA Prospect handbook yesterday. It’s about the 8th or 9th year in a row I have one. Sometimes it is interesting to go back and see a player you missed, or was a late bloomer. For example, I think I looked up Mikolas when he was with the Rangers.

    Yes, I have each year’s BA Prospect Handbook in my bookcase, too, for reference. Though I use them much less than I used to. (I don’t ever buy the BP Annual, though.)

    Derek, thank you for the clarification and the full list. I don’t have a major concern with it. I do have the outfielders in the 11-20 range in a different order from them. They are not high on Baker, but we shall see…

    Milb ranks Cards farm system 12th. Perhaps a little higher than most analysts.

    (Please move the discussion just above to the MiLB ranking thread. Thanks.)
