BA Top 100

Today Baseball America released its Top 100 Prospects list, and here is where the Mariners prospects fall on the ranking:

  • 17 – Mike Zunino
  • 18 – Taijuan Walker
  • 29 – Danny Hultzen
  • 79 – Nick Franklin
  • 87 – James Paxton

What’s interesting about this is that we are likely to get three or four of them in Tacoma to start the season – and there seems to be a solid chance that we will have all five of them on the team at some point this season. That’s pretty amazing.

On Twitter, Chris Crawford set the over/under on these players to make the Rainiers opening day roster at 3.5. I’m taking the under, for now: I like the bottom three, with the top two perhaps arriving later in the season.

You can see the entire free version of the Baseball America list right here. The free version is just a list of names, you need to be a BA subscriber to get all of the added content.


Coming tomorrow: Rainiers corner infielders.
