Keith Law's Midseason Top 50 Prospect Rankings

ESPN's Keith Law updated his Top 50 prospect rankings today, and there is a new #1 prospect in baseball according to Law.


As is customary at this time of year, many of the prospect experts are publishing their midseason Top 50 Prospect rankings, and today ESPN's Keith Law published his updated rankings.

Unlike some of the other prospect experts, Law included some of the players drafted in the June 2014 MLB draft including Michael Conforto, Carlos Rodon, and others. Below you will find his Top 10 prospects and he has a new #1 prospect in baseball.

1. Kris Bryant, CHC

2. Byron Buxton, MIN

3. Carlos Correa, HOU

4. Addison Russell, CHC

5. Corey Seager, LAD

6. Francisco Lindor, CLE

7. Jonathan Gray, COL

8. Javier Baez, CHC

9. Archie Bradley, ARI

10. Carlos Rodon, CHW

Cubs fans can get excited as they now have three prospects in Law's top 8 and all three are on the cusp of making their big league debuts. Along with Arismendy Alcantara, the 2015 Cubs could feature all four of these prospects in their starting lineups as soon as Opening Day. I have to think that Theo Epstein will call all three of them up in early September and let them play everyday, as he probably wants to see if they will require more AAA season to start the 2015 season, or if they are ready to take their lumps in the big leagues.

As a Dodgers fan, I am pretty happy to see Seager at #5. Seager struggled in his first taste of High A last season, and even in the Arizona Fall League, but he has dominated at the plate in High A this season, earning a promotion to AA Chatanooga after the MLB Futures game.

The Dodgers have two other prospects in Law's Top 50 rankings, including Julio Urias at # 17 and Joc Pederson at #22.

Other notables:

Joey Gallo, TEX - # 18

Nick Gordon, MIN - # 25

Tyler Kolek, MIA - # 30

Michael Conforto, NYM - #32

Alex Jackson, SEA - #43
