Extremely Early 2014 MLB Draft Rankings

Alex Jackson hitting at PG National - Matt Garrioch

A far too early ranking of the 2014 MLB Draft.

This is extremely early but I've went over my notes from the last two college seasons, summers and what I have seen of the high school talent so far. This list is very fluid and there will be players that pop up and others that slide down. Some of these guys I haven't sat down and really analyzed yet but this is where I will start. I'll update this several times before the 2014 MLB Draft but we have to start somewhere. This is just a list of names and some basic info at this point. Write ups will follow over the coming months, so be patient. I expect to produce more and higher quality reports and information this year than I have ever done in the past.
