Warning: players who appear in our live prospects listing, but are ranked near the very bottom of the list, may only appear in this position because their records have only become visible in the past few days and are still awaiting update. They may also only appear because they were once ranked higher and still technically qualify. As a side-effect of our automated processes, the end of the publicly-visible list also collects longshots, underdocumented signees, recently-retired players, foreign players unlikely to enter MLB, near-busts and other extreme dark-horse candidates. It does not mean that there are not 'better' prospects, only that better prospects in our system lack enough accurate data and/or scouting inputs to become visible at this time. Always read the detailed information and consult other sources before drawing conclusions about prospect viability, and never, ever, ever treat a 'ranking' alone as if it's meaningful.

A righthanded fireplug of a pitcher with the kind of name headline-writers dream about, Brewer prospect David Goforth is a U Mississippi alum drafted way back in 2011's 7th round. With a short, strong arm, Goforth can hit 99mph on the gun, though he's better when he switches to a darting cut fastball at about 92mph. His change and curve aren't anything special, but it shouldn't matter: everything about Goforth screams power reliever.
