Top 50 Shortstop Prospects

Top 50 Shortstop Prospects

Below are the Top 50 shortstop prospects. I decided to list more players because shortstop is a more prospect-filled position, but by #50, I was running sort of low on names.  Omissions are possible because—as the list gets longer—so does the number of players who potentially deserve to be ranked. As always, feedback is appreciated so let us know which places the rankings could improve.
