2013 Consensus Top 190 Prospects

New, comments

It's time to see how top prospects fared when comparing 12 different top prospect lists. Who is high, and who is low?

Jurickson Profar's ceiling is this big.

Finally, it's consensus top prospect time -- my favorite time of the year. What's better than a top 100 prospect list? 12 of them! Every time a player appears on a list, he is given 151 minus his ranking number of points (A ranking of No. 1 gives 150 points). All of the points are added up and the player with the highest total is ranked at the top. The reason I do this instead of taking the average ranking is very simple: It's better. Take Luis Heredia, for example. He appears on eight lists with an average ranking of 69. However, his total points ranking is 84. We must take into account the fact that not all players are ranked by all lists, so an average ranking is misleading. This year, for the first time, I have included players ranked beyond 100.

A thorough analysis of which lists liked, disliked, included, and excluded certain players will soon follow.

Here is a spreadsheet with all lists together (excluding Keith Law's as his listing is for ESPN insiders only).
