Baseball America's Top 10 International Prospects

1. Eloy Jimenez, OF 2. Gleyber Torres, SS 3. Rafael Devers, 3B 4. Leonardo Molina, OF 5. Luis Encarnacion, 3B 6. Micker Zapata, OF 7. Yelstin Gudino 8. Marcos Diplan, RHP 9. Yeyson Yrizarri, SS 10. Jose Herrera, C For reference my Top 50 International Prospects (pre age confirmation on Obispo Aybar-Lara) 1. Eloy Jimenez, OF 2. Obispo Aybar Lara, SS 3. Gleyber Torres, SS 4. Micker Zapata, OF 5. Mayky Perez, RHP 6. Leonardo Molina, OF 7. Mikey Edie, OF 8. Lus Encarnacion, 3B 9. Yeltsin Gudino, SS 10. Marcos Diplan, RHP * I had catcher Jose Herrera (#10 on BA's list) ranked at 29, and shortstop Yeyson Yrizarri (#9 according to BA) on my list of other's to know. I originally had Herrera in my top 10 (as high as #6), because of his great polish at the plate, but as more names and reports became available to me he slowly moved down the rankings due to lack of overall projection. I still would not put him among my top 10, but he would likely be among the top 20, were I to update the list. Yrizarri I did not know enough about to even rank among my top 50, and wasn't a name I heard a lot about from my sources, but my info is at least a month or two old, so him rising up boards is not totally unexpected.

Baseball Prospectus on Trading Away Top Prospects

You need insider to view the whole thing, but the cliff notes are that top prospects who get traded away tend to be less successful. This is obviously very relevant to the Trevor Bauer and Wil Myers trades.
