Good to see all three of the big Red Sox guys get on the list.

I don't really have a problem with any of this list. Better than MLB.com

Why does Hanson still not have a prospect card yet then?

Not sure where he was pre-season but Jose Fernandez at #8 now must've been a huge jump. Well deserved.

He was basically an unknown until this season.

Very surprised at Xander being so low, Sickels had him at 11 but BA has him at 31?

Kinda a joke right there

I mean how is Mason Williams higher? X is younger and putting up better numbers than Williams in a tougher league

Crazy to think Bundy was in high school last year. Heard Buck on XM MLB Radio talking about potentially using him out of the bullpen if they are still in the pennant race.

Myers has had a nice ascent. I wish I invested more in him.

Machado and Shelby Miller have dropped a bit as well.

Good to see that the Mariners have two prospects in the top 5. Just wish we had some batters. Big 3 of King Felix, Hultzen, Walker sounds really nice though.

I can't understand the fall for Bubba Starling. I know everyone is going to say he hasn't played until recently, and he's old for the level he's starting at, but he was drafted, and hyped based on potential. He was a 2-sport guy and didn't concentrate of baseball like a lot of other guys. Understandably he has a lot more work to do, but that same potential is still in place as it was at the draft last year.

Anyway....thanks for sharing.....love following prospects!

Panik or Crick? The Giants have a good track record on pitchers and Crick seems to be a clone of Matt Cain.

Random question, but I have Starlin Castro in my farm system in a dynasty fantasy league. Javier Baez is starting to scare me is he the real deal and I should dump Castro while his value is high?

Baez will probably end up at 3b, or in the outfield.

Not because of Baez. The Cubs are rumored to be willing to field offers for Castro, most likely in the off season. Even if they don't move him, Baez likely won't be a SS by the time he reaches the majors.

How do you have Starlin in your farm? I wouldn't get rid of Castro unless you can get Tulo/Hanley/Reyes back. Baez won't be a major league factor for another couple of years.

I've seen Marisnick play quite a bit this year..not sure why he's still ranked so high.

Thanks guys good to know. He's one of the hottest prospects in our league's farm system so he gets me a lot of offers. One guy offered me Justin Upton straight up for him and I was debating it.

Ichirorox to answer your question we draft minor leaguers into our farm system every year and they can stay there indefinitely until we call them up regardless of when they reach the majors. My team hasn't been very competitive this year so I opted not to call up Castro this year. This is big because each guy we call up gets a really affordable first contract before we have to extend him for more money or throw him back into the draft pool. But that contract doesn't go active until we call them up, bascially you can hold a guy in your farm for free until you are ready to let him loose on your actual roster.

So here's a big question, who on this list is "peaking" right now. In other words, who is ranked as highly as they are going to be? Or you could say who is "overrated", I suppose?

The one that jumps out at me is Anthony Gose. He's hit about .255 with tons of Ks every year but is suddenly feasting on hitter-friendly Las Vegas. I'd sell now on him

Lindor at #14...nice!

Looking forward to seeing Starling Marte play on Saturday; hopefully he's down that long...hearing he's really close to getting the call.
