Top 143 Prep Prospects For The 2014 MLB Draft

Pepperdine commit LHP Kodi Medeiros

After seeing roughly nearly three quarters of his top 100 prep players in the last month, Kiley takes one more crack at a top prep prospects list before the spring, this time with 43 more players listed, including a number of new names in the top half of the list.

Now that the summer/fall showcase and tournament season has wrapped up, I wanted to update my previous Top 100 from September 30th with more players listed along with adjustments based on recent events. See some of the articles linked above for details on these players and click on the player's name to see previous content, including scouting reports and videos.

The biggest risers on this list (Schwarz, Bivens, Ramos) were mostly players ranked in the regional prospect rankings earlier this fall that took a step forward recently. Those dropping the most in some cases (Gatewood, Chester, Cease) are due to poor performance while others (Gatto, Flaherty, Varga) didn't play as much this fall and other players simply jumped past them. It's obviously still early with the draft not until June, so this list will surely shuffle itself a few more times.
