2015 Top 100 Prospects

Thats right---looking ahead to this time next year. I made this list for my own enjoyment so I can look back a year from now and see how my predictions held up. Figured I'd share it in case anyone is interested. The list includes 3 future international imports, 14 guys who will be drafted in 2014, and is missing all the soon to be graduates, and a few guys I expect to fall apart (Gary Sanchez, Jeff Hoffman, etc):

First, the graduates, sorted by where they place on my current top 100 list:
