This will be our 21st round. We'll do one more "regular" round" after this one, and then do a final round in which we identify 3 more players to close out the list. As everyone got a vote, no one is dropped.
Temporarily Dropped- Jared Cosart 0 votes (round 17), Dan Straily 0 votes (round 18)
Permanently Dropped- Khris Davis 0 votes (round 19), Alex Wood 0 votes (round 19)
We are returing Jose Iglesias to the ballot based on his having gotten a write in vote. We'll also give a turn on the ballot to Leonys Martin, who drew some discussion last round..
I had somehow ended up with the name of AJ Pollock to get on the ballot at some point. Based on lack of demand for Pollock and some discussion this past round, I'm going to change that to Didi Gregorius as a possibility to get on in round 22 if there is room.
So who is the #21 prospect for future performance among last year's rookies? If any clarification is needed, we are essentially rating this group of players for their future as if they were still prospects, the same as we did last year when they had their rookie eligibility. As a reminder, voting is by +1 for your #1 candidate, and +2 for your #2
