    You need to add Brandon Marsonek to this list.

      These are pre-season lists. We re-rank every off-season starting in November.

      • Nick Caputo

        Any chance JP Sportman enters the list next offseason?

          We haven’t started piecing together the list, but he is definitely on the list of guys we will consider. A very solid all-around baseball player.

    The guys I’m most curious to see move up or see how much they upped their value are: Bj boyd, Seth brown, Neuse (can he crack top 10), Tyler ramirez, and then from this year’s class dunshee and Howard and Logan farrar. Can 34or36 Rd keep up his hitting…I think he could have led Penn league but failed to qualify by a few AB. Should be interesting, seems like A’s have done great with first 3 Rd in draft(not including ’15draft) with, Chapman, Pinder, Maxwell, Healy, Gossett, all finding themselves as Starters. Going back to 2012 and Matt Olson saved that draft and Bj Boyd could see himself get promoted to 40man…or be a rule 5 pick. Of all the teams I think Athletic’s have the most future players reaching the show, they may not have as many superstars as whitesox, reds, or Yankees, but we will see who has most mlb worthy talent.

      Working on this year’s top-50 list now. It’s a tough job. There are some very talented players that are going to be left off. The system has definitely improved a lot.
