Welcome to the 2012 ESPN Insider ranking of the top 100 prospects in baseball.
This is the fifth year I have done these rankings for ESPN, and for the first time I have the same player at No. 1 for the second straight year. Last year’s Rule 4 draft was one of the deepest in recent memory, so there are plenty of new faces.
A more detailed explanation of the process in determining these rankings is found at the top of each of the four player capsule pages.
To see Keith Law’s top 100 prospect rankings and scouting capsules, you must be an ESPN Insider.
