Hello everyone and welcome back to the Gameday.

Two things to pass along from the prospecting world. The team over at Baseball Prospectus (where former writer Wilson Karaman can be found) released their midseason prospect list yesterday, The BP Top 50, as well as their just missed list. No real surprises at the top of their version with Dodgers SS Corey Seager and Nationals RHP Lucas Giolito ranked in the top two slots. LHP Julio Urias, SS JP Crawford, and 3B/LF Joey Gallo round out the top five in order. The BP crew is much higher on RF Nomar Mazara, putting him at #6 while Baseball America has him at 34th. They are also buying into RHP Reynaldo Lopez at #19,

Speaking of Baseball America, they also debuted their midseason list today. Corey Seager and Lucas Giolito also rank 1-2 with the previously mentioned Joey Gallo, Julio Urias, and JP Crawford finishing out the top five. The placement of SS Orlando Arcia at #8 was a bit surprising and his 28 spots higher than BP had him. Same with #9 on their list, SS Trea Turner who is ranked 43rd over at Baseball Prospectus, and CF Brett Phillips who checked in at #21 while not even landing in the top 50 for BP.
