Who will be the No. 1 prospect at the end of next season?

Who will be No. 1 at the end of next season?

Just when you thought the season was coming to an end and it was impossible to have another shock call…

Do not. The Mets brought up No. 1 prospect Francisco Álvarez just in time to wrap up the season with a big weekend series against the Warriors and final three games with the Nationals. Of course, this starts his clock. In the MLB Pipeline, that doesn’t mean his arbitration time or eventual free agency. We’re talking about him graduating from the prospect rankings.

As has been our rule for a long time, when When a player exceeds rookie status – exceeds 911 batters or 10 days of service time (now including September) – He’s always on our list. Álvarez obviously isn’t getting there anytime soon — assuming he’s in the majors forever and will be on the Mets’ Opening Day roster, suggesting graduation sometime next May — but that doesn’t mean we can’t start thinking about him. ‘s successor.

when this happens , figuring out who the next No. 1 prospect is is not as simple as pushing the No. 2 or 3 prospect to the top. That’s because the Orioles’ Gunnar Henderson (No. 2) and the D-backs’ Corbin Carroll (No. 3) both beat Álvarez to get into the majors and will likely end 39 batting and more service time to enter

season, which means they will graduate before the Mets catchers.

Let’s not just look at who will take over the top spot when he graduates. A lot of that will likely depend on our rookie No. 4-8: Orioles right-hander Grayson Rodriguez, who should be up early next year and will start from Alvarez soon after. Rookie State graduates, Yankees shortstop Anthony Volpe, Cardinals third baseman/outfielder Jordan Walker, Red Sox shortstop Marcelo Mayer, Dodgers receiver Diego Cartaya.

Instead, let’s see who is most likely to take the throne this time next year. here is10 Candidate:

1. Anthony Volpe, SS, Yankees (

5th 50 )

: The current numbers 4-8 are not spared either, although Volpe has a rougher 2023, he still made one 12-14 season. At this time he has the opportunity to graduate at 2023, but may spend some time at 2023 at least until then.


2. Jordan Walker, OF, Cardinals(

number 6

): Another potential grad, Walker should be an outfielder — only who will continue to be in next year’s Triple-A Played very good offensive stats from a very young age.

2023 3. Marcelo Mayer, SS, Red Sox (Number 7


He had a great first full season in pro ball, producing double-digit homers and steals at both levels of A-ball, age 19. He was just scratching the surface.

4. Jackson Holliday, SS, Orioles(

Do not. 14

): This year’s No. 1 pick has one.94

in OPS during his brief career debut, He should bring another top-five prospect to the Orioles soon.

5. Jackson Chourio, OF, Brewers (Do not. 04):

This double A teenager, the sky is the limit in age 14 never made it to our top in a special season.

) 6. Elly De La Cruz, SS/3B, Reds (Do not. 12

): Yes, we all want to see EDLC in the big leagues, that could happen, but imagine if the Reds wanted him to continue work, the data he might provide is all .

7. Druw Jones, OF, D-backs (Do not. 10 ):

He was knocked out a little bit, maybe unfairly because of the injuries he suffered before starting the year, but he’s the top talent in this year’s draft rankings.

8. Jordan Lawlar, SS, D-backs (Do not. 11):

D-backs something good is happening’ system, last year’s No. 6 pick reached a double-A in his first full season.


9. Andrew Painter, RHP, Phillies and . Eury Perez, RHP, Marlins: I put together these two teenage righties and they both Reached Double-A at a ridiculous young age. Both are probably in the majors, and we haven’t had many pitchers at the top of the list in years (Shohei Ohtani was the last, which shouldn’t even count).
