List of top draft prospects expands to 250 with new No. 1

The list of top draft prospects expands to 86, and New No. 1

  • It’s time for our last draft prospect list update!

        There are less than two days before the event starts Week time 2009 MLB Draft, we’ve expanded the MLB pipeline draft board to the top 86. We’ve also made some changes to the order based on performance and the latest information we’ve gotten from the scouting industry.

            This starts at the very top of the list. We’re moving LSU right-hander Paul Skenes to the top spot, ahead of teammate outfielder Dylan Crews. To be honest, the gap between the two Tigers is not that big, we could probably have them tie for first and jump to third. But in the final update, we decided that Skenesse’s dominance, and the fact that he continues to be compared to having the best college pitching prospect of all time, deserves recognition.

The five-man lineup of Cruise, Skeenes, Florida State outfielder Wyatt Langford and high school outfielders Walker Jenkins and Marks Clark remains the same. Back in late May, when we launched our Top 86, we released the results of an Executive Poll asking the top five national scouts, scouting directors and general managers, the industry as listed above Voting was conducted sequentially, with Cruise narrowly winning ahead of Skenes.

                                  That’s a very select company, right? Strasburg and Kerr are the No. 1 picks in the draft and 2011, while Strasburg is generally considered the best draft pitching prospect ever. Scouts are picky, so there are cautionary tales, with one interviewee saying, “As far as draft hype goes, it might be Strasburg. But I’m not entirely convinced he’s going to turn into an ace,” one interviewee said. Another replied, “Not sure, but it’s later than you think.”
