After a dominating run of position prospects, we have our first arm voted on our list. Big Nats righty Lucas Giolito squeaked by equally big Mets righty Noah Syndergaard for the number eight overall spot, 27 votes to 24 votes. Third place went to Joey Gallo with 7 votes, followed closely by Tyler Glasnow with 6 votes and Julio Urias with 5 votes. I am going to remove the bottom three vote-getters to filter through the tester pool.
Reminder: This year we are using the rec system to vote for players. That means you must be signed in to rec/vote for a player. We do not want to see +1 voting, as it kills discussion, and the polls are too easy to ballot stuff.
Any new testers you want to add, please do so below. Right now, I would focus on players in your personal top 40. Keep up the great discussion, and let's see who takes the #9 spot on the 2015 Minor League Ball Community Prospect List.
