Some changes to the Top 100

No, it’s not a re-ranking. Don’t get too excited. Besides, it’s too early for that. Not enough has happened to draw enough conclusions to move guys up and down based on performance just yet.

But what we have had are some graduations. The way we do things over at Prospect Watch, when a player on the list gets past rookie status — 130 at-bats for hitters, 50 innings pitched for pitchers or more than 45 days on the active roster for either — he has to come off.

So we had a little graduation ceremony today. Four players from the Top 100 came off:

Mike Trout, Angels
Jesus Montero, Mariners
Yonder Alonso, Padres
Randall Delgado, Braves

The first three surpassed the 130 AB mark between last year and this. Delgado did the sam with his innings threshold.

So, it’s time to welcome a new quartet to the back end of the top 100 (check them out on PW).

97. Eddie Rosario, 2B, Twins
98. Taylor Jungmann, RHP, Brewers
99. Robbie Erlin, LHP, Padres
100. Kolten Wong, 2B, Cardinals

That’s right, two second baseman added. I’m crazy like that. Also be sure to check out the team lists because we replaced the graduates on their respective Top 20s as well (not to mention the positional Top 10s… big shout out to colleague Jason Ratliff for getting it done once again!)

This reminds me, just letting you know, there have been quite a few more prospect graduations to the top prospect list that you haven’t listed. Bryce Harper, Jarrod Parker, Wilin Rosario, Nathan Eovaldi, Devin Mesoraco and Will Middlebrooks are super close, and I think Addison Reed has the requirement for time on the active roster. Just tryin to help.
