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

4/17/2014: George Springer made his MLB debut Wednesday, singling in his first at-bat and generally making himself more than comfortable in right field. Springer, whose callup seems to signal a little impatience on the part of the Astros, was slotted into the two-hole, showing either how much the team thinks of him, or how meager the rest of the lineup is. Or maybe a bit of each. Springer also struck out twice and walked once. He'll do that. More on Springer >
Jose Veras is out as the Cubs cloer after another blown save, but none of the other options look quite ready to step up, either. If we had to place a bet on which Cub would have the most saves come June, we'd choose Pedro Strop.... or maybe Hector Rondon. On second thought, we'd pass. Gambling is bad for you.
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.
