2020 Top 100 College Prospect Rankings


In February, we released our Top 350 College Prospects with Emerson Hancock (Georgia), Asa Lacy (Texas A&M), Carmen Mlodzinski (South Carolina), Reid Detmers (Louisville),  and C.J. Van Eyk (Florida State) leading the list of pitchers. Since that time, two changes have been made as Mlodzinski and Van Eyk weren’t quite as sharp as they’d been in the past.

Replacing those two and jumping into the Top 10 are Max Meyer (Minnesota) and Cade Cavalli (Oklahoma). Meyer showed explosive stuff early this spring with a fastball up to 100, while Cavalli refined his stuff, showing a more consistent slider and changeup, along with a fastball up to 97-98 this spring.

Also in February, Spencer Torkelson (Arizona State), Nick Gonzales (New Mexico State), Austin Martin (Vanderbilt), Garrett Mitchell (UCLA) and Heston Kjerstad (Arkansas) led our list of hitters. One change has been made to that list as North Carolina State catcher Patrick Bailey replaces Mitchell.

The overall strength of the 2020 MLB Draft continues to be college pitching; 33 of the top 50 are pitchers, while shortstop is also a strength of the college crop with 13 in the Top 100. The list of ranked shortstops is robust with Baylor’s Nick Loftin, Mississippi State’s Jordan Westburg, Arizona State’s Alika Williams, Louisiana’s Hayden Cantrelle and Rice’s Trei Cruz leading the charge.

In terms of teams, Arizona State, Georgia, Miami, Michigan and Mississippi State lead the way with four players each in the Top 100, while Arkansas, Florida State, LSU, Tennessee and Texas A&M each place three prospects on the list.

The college prospect rankings are assembled by David SeifertKendall Rogers and Aaron Fitt with assistance from our Midwest crew; Nick Faleris and Burke Granger.

Please note that rounds are estimations based on previous drafts and how many collegians were picked in each round.
