Scouting Book's Top Prospects list is a Combined List, a calculated summary of the overall valuations of the entire prospect universe.
Remember: this page is the result of an automatic process that re-sorts and re-ranks players often. If you're coming to this page directly, you're missing 9/10ths of what we do, so please

6/17/2016: Reds prospect Cody Reed will make his MLB debut Saturday in Houston. While he hasn't shone quite as brightly thus far in 2016 as he did the season before, he's still the top Reds pitcher available, and the team could certainly use a boost. If he can navigate a tough matchup with the Astros, he'll probably stick in the rotation for good.
Struggling through a June with an ERA over 10, the once-reliable Trevor Rosenthal has been removed from closing duties in St Louis, at least for now. There's no obvious replacement, but the mix of the most-trusted Kevin Siegrist, the best-stuff Seung Hwan Oh and the most-experienced (and once great) Jon Broxton will all hold down the fort until Rosenthal figures himself out again.
ScoutingBook.com is the backyard toolshed of a handful of swell fellas (and one sassy lady) who live, work or breathe baseball, information processing, online gaming, economic theory, infographicology, or some combination of those things.
We made it to combine our overlapping work for our own benefit and amusement. If it's useful to you, too, that's a bonus.
