Filihok: 2013 Top 100 Pre-Season Prospects

Various organizations and individuals have take to ranking these prospects. I am not one of those organizations or individuals. What I have done is looked over the rankings that other have made and entered them into a handy-dandy spreadsheet and applied a little bit of math to the rankings.

One thing I did, the most obvious thing to do, was to find the average ranking of players. Here's the top 25 players by average ranking:

1) Jurickson Profar SS Texas
2) Oscar Taveras OF St. Louis
3) Dylan Bundy P Baltimore
4) Wil Myers OF Tampa
5) Gerrit Cole P Pittsburgh
6) Jose Fernandez P Miami
7) Zack Wheeler P New York Mets
8) Xander Bogarts SS Boston
9) Taijuan Walker P Atlanta
10) Tyler Skaggs P Arizona
11) Christian Yelich OF Miami
12) Travis D'Arnaud C New York Mets
13) Miguel Sano 3B Minnesota
14) Byron Buxton OF Minnesota
15) Jameson Taillon P Pittsburgh
16) Francisco Lindor SS Cleveland
17) Shelby Miller P St. Louis
18) Mike Zunino C Seattle
19) Javier Baez SS Chicago Cubs
20) Billy Hamilton OF/SS Cincinnati
21) Trevor Bauer P Cleveland
22) Kevin Gausman P Baltimore
23) Carlos Correa SS Houston
24) Archie Bradley P Arizona
25) Nick Castellanos 3B Detroit

All 5 organizations/individuals rated Profar as the #1 prospect. There were near consensuses on Oscar Taveras and Dylan Bundy as well with both getting no lower than a #4 vote. Wil Myers was 4th in 4 of the 5 rankings.

The least agreed upon player was Colorado SS Trevor Story who was ranked as high as #34 and as low as #99.
