Overall, there is nothing too surprising about the rankings as listed. Hiura, Burnes and Peralta are the obvious top prospects, with the two pitchers already finding success in the majors.

Zack Brown was one of this year’s biggest risers after a dominant performance at AA Biloxi. His season is likely over after an ankle sprain, but he’ll be back and ready to go in 2019, if not Fall/Winter Ball. Jacob Nottingham also saw a large leap after a solid performance with his bat. If not for several injuries, he would probably even be higher. Meanwhile, Payton Henry shot into the top 15 after not even making the pre-season list and being ranked at 29 before this.

2018 draftees Brice Turang and Joe Gray arrived in the top 10. Turang is given quality marks for doing everything well. He has mostly 55s for his tool set, the only tool ranking below average is his power. Gray gets a low hit tool but solid tools across the board otherwise.

Trent Grisham saw a huge fall, from the top 10 to the bottom 10. Grisham has struggled offensively, but is continually challenged by his level while dealing with health concerns this year. Mario Feliciano saw a similar fall for similar reasons. His batting line is nothing short of awful but he’s seen minimal play time due to his health.
