Last night we published the Top 75 MLB Prospects for Mid-season 2015 list. The rankings did not include players who have exceeded rookie qualifications or who are reasonably expected to do so by the end of the year. There's a gray area there however, and there have also been numerous requests to do a separate list that includes 2015 rookies.

The 2015 rookie class has certainly been outstanding so far. Here's a top 10 ranking focuses on long-term value. As always your mileage may vary.

This is not intended to be comprehensive and doesn't provide detailed analysis, but it is intended to start a conversation.

We will be starting our mid-season reviews of every organization later this week and we'll weigh in then on the outlook for each rookie including the Devon Travises and Matt Duffys of the world.

1) Carlos Correa, SS, Astros
2) Kris Bryant, 3B, Cubs
3) Joc Pederson, OF, Dodgers
4) Addison Russell, 2B, Cubs
5) Byron Buxton, OF, Twins
6) Miguel Sano, 3B, Twins
