Just a few years back it was mostly dynasty owners who paid any real attention to MLB prospect rankings. Sure rookies came along and had some nice seasons, but generally, they weren’t league changers. Then Mike Trout came along and smashed that idea to bits and it seems like every year we see several young players come up and dominate right from day one.
If you drafted Aaron Judge, Clay Bellinger, Yordan Alvarez or another of this new breed of prospect in their rookie years, you likely got top-round talent for the price of a late-round flier.

MLB Prospect Rankings for 2020
There are so many great prospect analysts and sites, I was not sure exactly how to organize this. I finally settled on the three main ways prospects are typically ranked: Overall, by team, and by position. Within those categories, I then listed them alphabetically by the analyst’s last name. Hopefully, that helps you find the information you’re looking for quickly and easily.
