-Jonathan Mayo released the MLB.com top 100 draft prospects last week.

-On Thursday I combined the mid-season rankings from Baseball America, Keith Law, and MLB.com to get the consensus rankings.

-I added four new draft prospect trackers over the weekend, and updated the scouting reports on all of the existing trackers.

-Albert Almora is one of the players that I added over the weekend. He’s also one of the rare high school players that had stats available. His regular season is over, and he finished with a .500/.579/.833 line in 48 at-bats, with two homers. His full stat breakdown can be found on his player page.


-Mike Zunino and Florida play North Florida on Tuesday.

-Deven Marrero and Arizona State resume their schedule on Friday.
