Keith Law: Top 100 prospects of 2012
For the first time in list history the top two names return to the same spot
- Gary A. Vasquez/US PresswireMike Trout barely maintained his rookie eligibility for 2012, and he therefore stays atop the list.
Welcome to the 2012 ESPN Insider ranking of the top 100 prospects in baseball.
This is the fifth year I have done these rankings for ESPN, and for the first time I have the same player at No. 1 for the second straight year. Last year's Rule 4 draft was one of the deepest in recent memory, so there are plenty of new faces.
A more detailed explanation of the process in determining these rankings is found at the top of each of the four player capsule pages.
