The prospect team at Baseball Prospectus on Monday released their top 101 prospects in baseball for 2015, and the familiar quartet of Dodgers are featured among the best prospects in the game.
Just over a month ago, in January, Baseball Prospectus gave us their top 10 Dodgers prospects. That list was topped by Corey Seager, who has topped every national Dodgers prospects list to date. He ranks seventh in Baseball Prospectus' list, matching his MLB.com rating. He was ranked fifth by ESPN.
Though he is ranked so highly, the seventh-best prospect in baseball, Seager is fourth in line at shortstop, behind Addison Russell of the Cubs (ranked second overall), Carlos Correa of the Astros (third) and Franciso Lindor of the Indians (fourth).
Julio Urias ranked 10th overall and Joc Pederson 18th, the Dodgers have three in the top 20 prospects in baseball, with 2014 first-round pick Grant Holmes checking in at 79th.
The Dodgers in 2014 had the same three prospects in the top 50, with Urias 35th, Seager 44th and Pederson 50th.
Baseball America hasn't yet released their top 100 prospects in baseball, but expect at least the top three to rank highly, with Holmes likely finding his way into the back of the list. Here is where we are to date on national prospect lists for 2015:
