Hey y’all! All of the full-season leagues have had All-Star games and are into the second half of their seasons. I thought it would be a fun exercise to put together my top 100 prospects. This list is mostly a fantasy list but also has a real-life winkle in it. In fantasy, I value batters over pitchers. I do factor defense but has more of a tie-breaker between players. I have also removed prospects eligible players currently in the majors and who should remain on the big league club, like Yordan Alvarez and Keston Hiura. Enjoy! I’ll see you in the comments and on Twitter.

Juat a few notes from the list…
The Rays organization received the most love with seven players on the list. I’m hoping for a Rays and Padres World Series in a couple of years.
There is someone repesented from each team. The Rockies, Brewers, and Red Sox only have one representative. Out of the three, the Rockies and Brewers’ organization have me concerned. In recent years, they have had later draft picks but they have also not drafted well.
Yes. Royce Lewis is #36 for me. I’m pretty sure I am the lowest on him and maybe ranked a bit lower than I should to emphasize my concern. Even though he his repeating the level, his BB% has decreased while his K% and SwStk% have increased. He is also struggling on the basebaths with seven caught stealings to go along with his fourteen stolen bases. He also looked way overmatched when I saw him in the Futures Game in Cleveland. I really hope Lewis will prove me wrong.
There are only 22 pitchers in my top 100. For fantasy, pitching is very risky. That is why I was a bit intrigued with the Braves going pitching heavy in their rebuild I guess zig while everyone zags?
