1997 BASEBALL PROSPECTS


The Baseball Cube prospects section is based entirely on the pre-season rankings done by Baseball America each spring. This includes the Major League top 100 and the team-by-team top 10s. There is no TBC prospect rankings nor do we pretend to be experts on prospects and we certainly don't rank or evaluate prospets. All references to prospects and lists or rankings are from Baseball America from whom we have not received explicit permission to include.

TBC has added statistics, highest level reached and current status to the prospects section and we've re-organized for easier review.
