Top 100 Prospects – August 2016

Trea Turner

Welcome to the Dobber Baseball Top 100 Prospects list! This will be updated monthly, a la the wonderful Maclean monthly rankings. This list will always be skewed towards those that are closer to the majors. It also includes international players who are "rookies," such as Byung-ho Park and Kenta Maeda. It also will occasionally include comments for players, especially when they might seem to be ranked higher or lower than they should be. Comments are always welcome, especially your "What about (this guy)?!" and "Why is (that guy) ranked so high/low?!" comments. Enjoy the list...drink it in...it is chock full of delicious potential...
