Top 100 Prospects: September 2011

Top 100 Prospects: September 2011

Here is a current update of our Top 100 prospects. I tried to project which players will graduate by the end of the season (50 IP’s or 130 AB’s), and placed a “*” next to several players with a good chance of graduating. It’s worth mentioning the rankings are estimates taken from our end of season rankings, and I put arrows next to some of the players I think we should consider putting higher or lower. The off-season will provide a good time to really evaluate the reasoning behind our rankings, and let us know which players y’all would rank higher or lower.
