As you have already seen so far this week, we're taking a comprehensive look at one position each week in preparation for the fantasy baseball season. That look would not be complete without a look at the future as well, and with that in mind we will be providing a top prospect list at each position also. While I won't be ranking the same amount of prospect at each position, the goal is to provide enough that will be fantasy relevant in both shallow and deeper formats.
These rankings represent how I view the players at this time, and speak to their value long-term. This means that players like Clint Frazier, who has a higher upside but is a bit further away than some of the other prospects, is ranked higher here based on what his future potential is, rather than his 2015 value.
With outfielders, there are some fairly clear tiers in my opinion, where players within each tier are fairly close in overall ranking and I wouldn't argue too heavily if you have one player ahead of where I have them. For me, those tiers fall at #5-#8, #9-#13, #14-#19 and #20-#25. Within each of those groups, I had the outfield prospects fairly evenly ranked, but little nuances (proximity, home park, etc) led me to rank one ahead of the other.
