Andrew McCutchen Ranks Second Among 25 and Under Players

Keith Law released a ranking of baseball’s best players who are 25 and under. The list doesn’t include anyone who has lost their Rookie of the Year eligibility, so most top prospects were not included. ¬†Andrew McCutchen was ranked second on the list, trailing only Justin Upton. Law noted that McCutchen doesn’t have the offensive upside of Upton, but provides more value on defense. He also notes that McCutchen is currently a 20-25 home run a year guy, and that PNC Park could be holding him back offensively.
