We are finally ready to start to reveal our Top 40 Seattle Mariners prospects, as ranked by us. Today, we continue with the next 5 names to make the list.
A few days ago, you read about a handful of Mariners prospects who just edged their way into the cut of our Top 40. Today, we continue our official countdown, revealing the next 5 prospects to crack our Top 40 list.
But before we do, let’s review our process. First, the rankers consisted of 4 staff writers. All 4 writers produced a list of their top prospects. The average rank of each player is the spot they landed on our list. In this case, the lower the number, the higher the rank.
Our rankers were not given any criteria for their list. Different eyes see different things and unique minds value things differently than others. There are no cookie cutters for prospect scouting and beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Also, take these ranks with a grain of salt. We do not get to see many of these players often and are relying on graining video, scouting reports, and statistics to cover our bases. If you want top-end prospect ranks, I suggest Keith Law of ESPN and Eric Longenhagen and Kiley McDaniel.
Without any further delay, let’s get started.
