BCB Community Prospect Rankings: Vote for #2

New, 20 comments

As most probably would have predicted, Alcides Escobar won the voting for prospect #1. Voting for #2 opens now and will remain open until 4 pm tomorrow. 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 #2 spot:

Zach Braddock
Mat Gamel
Brett Lawrie
Jonathan Lucroy
Jake Odorizzi

Follow the jump for more on the nominees, then vote in the poll below. Voting will remain open for 24 hours, with voting for #3 opening at 4 pm tomorrow.
