Top 100 Prospects according to nutty Cashews!

I am not an expert, nor have I seen everyone on this list live or on video, so most of this is based upon scouting reports and statistics. Players like Andrelton Simmons who are likely to stay up with the big league club do not appear on this list, even though they remain prospects. Players who have not signed yet, such as Mark Appel and Marcus Stroman will not appear in these rankings. Some of these rankings might seem odd, and that's most likely because they are. Feel free to challenge any of the rankings, I'm up for some friendly debate.
