2019 College Top 150 Prospects: 1.0 Prospects
Summer baseball has come and gone, fall workouts are finally here and it’s time to take an in-depth look at the top prospects in the 2019 draft class.
We began our prospect series Tuesday with a ranking of the Top 50 pitchers for next summer’s MLB draft. Wednesday, we took an in-depth look at the Top 50 hitters. The 2019 package culminates with an inside look at the Top 150 overall prospects.
Our top position prospect rankings were headlined by none other than Oregon State backstop Adley Rutschman and California slugger Andrew Vaughn. That trend carries over to the overall rankings. Rutschman is a step above the rest at this juncture with his unique combination of power, an advanced offensive approach, superb defensive skills and strong arm. Vaughn is the most feared and consistent hitter in college baseball, and did nothing to change anyone’s mind this past summer.
Baylor’s Shea Langeliers is another premier catcher to watch, while Duke’s Graeme Stinson has earned some comparisons to former NC State standout Carlos Rodon and is the top pitcher on our board. Lefties Zack Thompson and Nick Lodolo will attract plenty of eyeballs in the spring as they aim to establish consistency, while West Virginia righthander Alek Manoah looks to build off an outstanding summer at the Cape Cod League.
Louisville and Vanderbilt lead the charge with six players each on the overall list, while Stanford, Texas Tech, UCLA, Georgia Tech and North Carolina each had five players on the list. Eat Carolina, Florida, LSU and Oregon each had four, while Arkansas, Baylor, Coastal Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi State, St. John’s and UC Irvine each have three.
The college prospect rankings are assembled by Kendall Rogers, Aaron Fitt and David Seifert, along with contributions from Prep Baseball Report’s Dan Jurik.
