Eric Munson was #23 ranked MLB prospect in 2000
Prospects are the future of baseball. They are defined as the best players not yet in the Major Leagues. People often use the word Prospect to denote a minor leaguer but though in theory, yes, they are all prospects of some sort, they are not rated prospects. This section is for the recognized and rated. Baseball America and MLB Pipeline (among others) attempt to rank prospects. There's nothing groundbreaking here. Its just recycled data from other sources.

Top 10 prospects per team are available since 1983 for Baseball America.
