2015 Mid-Season Top 50 Prospects

I published my Top 100 prospect list for the 2015 season in late October. Since then, we’ve seen numerous players jump to the majors to be contributors at the big league level.

Fortunately, there are still many to come, and here are the top 50 prospects remaining in the minors:

NOTE: Since this is a mid-season list, I am not going to go in-depth with reporting at this time. If you’d like to see more, follow the link to the statistics from Baseball Reference and view how each prospect is performing, or feel free to comment for specific questions on players and I’ll provide a response.
