For the next installments of “What If Major League Baseball Wasn’t The Highest League?”, I’m going to be releasing the official PSF Top 100 Prospect List. Read the introduction here: WWBL introduction article

The PSF prospect experts value the following things: age, MLB experience, tools (power, contact, speed, defense velocity, stuff, etc), and MLB success. All of those are taken into account in our ratings. All players must have at least half of a season of MLB experience to be on this list, meaning no actual prospects will be featured. Salaries are not taken into account. The top 100 prospects represent the top 100 players who we believe will not only have the most success in the WWBL, but also the players who will be able to have value the longest. That is one of the reasons why older players may not make this list. Like prospects, Future Value is considered. One bad year does not ruin a prospect’s rank, and MLB success is not the only thing taken into account.

Again, these are not necessarily the top 100 players in baseball right now. Stats from the last three seasons are taken into account.

100. Justin Verlander (Tokyo Tigers, AL Detroit)

99. Marcus Stroman (Moscow Meerkats, AL Toronto)

98. Jake Lamb (African Alligators of Ethiopia, NL Arizona)

97. Jake Odorizzi (Seoul Snakes, AL Tampa Bay)

96. Yoenis Cespedes (New York City Ninjas, NL New York)

95. Jacob deGrom (New York City Ninjas, NL New York)

94. Lorenzo Cain (Colombia Cats, AL Kansas City)

93. Cole Hamels (Mexico City Meerkats, AL Texas)

92. Jimmy Nelson (London Lizards, NL Milwaukee)

91. Giancarlo Stanton (Seoul Snakes, NL Miami)

90. Gio Gonzalez (Moscow Meerkats, NL Washington)

89. Didi Gregorius (New York City Ninjas, AL New York)
