Keith Law's Top Five Prospects By Position

New, 4 comments

It is prospect list time!  ESPN's Keith Law began rolling out his top prospects list.  Tuesday, he posted his Top 5 prospects by postions.  Yesterday, he posted his Top 5 by organization, and, today, he will release his Top 100.

Unfortunately, all the lists are behind the Insider subscription wall.  As a result, I will only "tease" you with a couple "surprise" players at each position today.  Over the next few days I will do some thing similar with the next two lists.

Mr. Law has an ESPN chat today, and I'm sure he will reveal even more of his rankings via questions.  I'll try to answer any questions about a specific player's presence on the list, though.
