BNS Top 50 MLB Prospects: End-Of-Season Report and Analysis

St. Louis Cardinals prospectsNow that the minor league season has concluded and the major league postseason pursuit is in full gear, it is now an appropriate time to look back at the prospects who have made a name for themselves as some of the premier up-and-coming talents in the game over the course of the 2013 season.

Much like the top prospect rankings that were published at midseason, this list will include any and all prospects that have not exhausted their rookie eligibility. However, our previous list held an exception, wherein it excluded any prospects that were at the time playing in the major leagues, which is not the case this time around, as we have included all prospects regardless of major or minor league status.

When taking into account the respective ranking of each of the Top 50 prospects in this list, we looked at talent/ability level, respective league difficulty, and progression (as well as projection) of each player up through the current period of time.

As the postseason rapidly approaches at the major league level and select prospects gear up for action in the Arizona Fall League, organizations should be pleased to further evaluate their future players (whether that be in postseason action in the big leagues or through the rather competitive, yet constructive nature of fall league ball).

The future of Major League Baseball looks bright and the prospects that follow represent that future with a burgeoning amount of talent and plus potential.

With that being said, I hope that you enjoy our season’s-end Top 50 prospect rankings.

  1. […] 30. Travis d’Arnaud, C, New York Mets – Affiliate Team: New York Mets Age: 24 Ht/Wt: 6-2/195 Bats/Throws: R/R Drafted: 1st Round (37th overall), 2007  Travis d’Arnaud has been consistently ranked as the top catching prospect in baseball over the past couple of seasons. Despite fracturing his left foot in mid-April, d’Arnaud rebounded with a solid second half return that would include a big league promotion. Everything about d’Arnaud’s game suggested that a big league call-up was around the corner, as he possesses a compact swing that generates plus power and allows him to hit to all fields with relative ease. He has blossomed into a solid defender behind the plate and possesses a strong arm, as he projects to be a solid all-around, everyday catcher at the next level. http://baseballnewssource.com/prospects/bns-top-50-mlb-prospects-end-of-season-report-and-analysis/2… […]

  2. […] 11. Noah Syndergaard, RHP, New York Mets – Affiliate Team: Double-A Binghamton Mets  Age: 20  Ht/Wt: 6-6/240  Bats/Throws: L/R  Drafted: 1st Round (38th overall), 2010  Mets Minor Leagues – Syndergaard, following a solid 2012 season with Low Class A Lansing where he posted an 8-5 record with a 122/31 strikeout to walk ratio in 103.2 innings, has been ranked amongst the top pitching prospects in the minor leagues. A tall, sturdy frame allows Syndergaard to throw downhill with a plus mid-90s fastball that has decent movement. Syndergaard has showcased one of the better fastballs in the minors this season, an elite pitch that should propel him to the Mets’ big league rotation in the coming future. He maintains mid-90s velocity on his heater and is able to reach back for more if needed. Syndergaard delivers from an angle that gives the ball strong sink and deception, inducing groundballs and preventing batters from squaring up on the ball. His pitching arsenal not only includes a powerful heater, but also off-speed offerings such as a changeup and curveball that he throws hard and effectively. Syndergaard’s sound mechanics, pitch offerings, and ability to throw strikes will allow him to become a frontend starter for the Mets within the next couple seasons. http://baseballnewssource.com/prospects/bns-top-50-mlb-prospects-end-of-season-report-and-analysis/2… […]
