Baseball America Mid-Season Top 25 PREDICTIONS (Updated!!)

I think it will be fun for us all to predict baseball america's mid-season top 25 for this season (in addition to the 26-50 ranked prospects that BA just puts in alphabetical order, instead of ranking.)

It's important to keep in mind that BA does not include anyone who will be in the majors as of july 4th 2011 or so. Therefore, guys that could get called up soon like Desmond Jennings should be excluded from your lists.

Here is mine.

1. Bryce Harper
2. Mike Trout
3. Julio Teheran
4. Shelby Miller
5. Matt Moore
6. Manny Machado
7. William Myers
8. Jacob Turner
9. Brett Jackson
10. Jesus Montero
11. Martin Perez
12. Jameson Taillon
13. Casey Kelly
14. Randall Delgado
15. Gary Sanchez
16. Kyle Gibson
17. Travis D'Arnaud
18. Devin Mesoraco
19. Jason Kipnis
20. Manny Banuelos
21. Rubby De La Rosa
22. Leonys Martin
23. Brad Peacock
24. Dee Gordon
25. Jurickson Profar

These are my 26-50 guys (I didn't bother putting them in alphabetical order but note there is no specific order to them, it is random)

zach lee
mike montgomery
nick franklin
jean segura
jedd gyorko
zach cox
jake odorizzi
neil ramirez
dellin betances
jose altuve
wilin rosario
trey mcnutt
yonder alonso
bryce brentz
joseph wieland
brody colvin
anthony ranaudo
drew pomeranz
zack wheeler
jonathan schoop
miguel sano
jarred cosart
arodys vizcaino
robert erlin
mike olt

Most other very good prospects that seem to be missing from this list are guys i see being in mlb on july 4th or so. Some notable players I left out of my top 50 who probably won't be on mlb rosters are john lamb, jonathan singleton, tim wheeler, carlos martinez, matt harvey, derek norris, vincent catricala, sean coyle etc. They all just missed the cut in my eyes.

I'm sure there are guys I have overlooked and maybe I have overrated some players so I look forward to seeing everyone else's prediction.

(rubby de la rosa and yonder alonso were removed due to likelihood of being in mlb, not talent concerns)
