Baseball Prospectus released their Top-101 Prospects List today, ranking four Mariners youths in their midst.
No. 7 - OF Jarred Kelenic
No. 10 - OF Julio Rodríguez
No. 39 - RHP Logan Gilbert
No. 62 - 1B Evan White
It’s a similar grouping to other major lists we’ve seen this winter, albeit slightly different at the top and bottom. Like MLB Pipeline, BP gave Kelenic the edge over Rodríguez, and while they note he was not in serious consideration for the No. 1 spot like those ahead of him, he gets top billing below that uber-prospect tier. Right on his heels is Rodríguez, who earns Seattle the all-important base-10 distinction of two top-10 prospects. LoGi is right in line with his MLBP ranking as well, though here he rates right behind/in line with (Spencer Howard, Ian Anderson) or actually ahead of (Matt Manning) a few of his closest contemporaries. Like MLB Pipeline, Gilbert ranks well ahead of his Baseball America slotting as well, putting him ahead of Evan White in the process. White is the final player on the list in Northwest Green, given lowest billing here, but still making healthy progress.
Notably, no other Seattle prospects made the Top-101, nor the “10 That Just Missed” section for BP. For more detail on BP’s perspective on Seattle’s system, their Top-20 for the Mariners can be read here.
