BCB Community Prospect Rankings: Vote for #1

With the All Decade Team nearly behind us, it's time to move on to our next project: updating the BCB Community Prospect Rankings. Just like last year, a new poll will open each day to select the next player added to the list, and we'll keep naming players until we've reached a point arbitrarily selected by you, the reader, at a later date.

Here are the five candidates for the #1 spot:

Zach Braddock
Alcides Escobar
Mat Gamel
Brett Lawrie
Jonathan Lucroy

Follow the jump for more on the nominees, then vote in the poll below. Voting will remain open for 24 hours, with voting for #2 opening at 4 pm tomorrow.
