The 2017 MLB Draft is just days away, and this year I’m releasing my Top 200 list all at once. This year’s draft marks the first time since I started covering the Dodgers’ farm that Los Angeles does not have any additional selections. This might be just as well, as my general impression of the depth in this class is not as favorable as the previous two drafts. Before unveiling the list, I wanted to share a few additional thoughts on the 2017 class.

While the talent is still strong at the top, the depth tends to drop off fairly quickly after the first 60-70 players. The college bats are particularly shallow this season, and the prep class is lacking in quality left side infield talent. Perhaps this class’s greatest asset is speed, with several college burners to pair with a prep class that gave little reverence to the 6.5-second barrier in the sixty yard dash.

The prep class is deepest in outfielders, where Jordon Adell might be perhaps the toolsiest prep since I started my rankings here. Beyond Adell, there are several 80-grade runners with additional offensive tools to spare, and speed will likely be available through the first five rounds. The college class also has it’s share of base stealers, though outside of Jeren Kendall, most of the collegiate burners lack pop.

My biggest concern with the prep class this year is the potential bust factor in many of it’s upper-tier talents. Analytical teams tend to shy away from older prep prospects, but that might be difficult to do with so many top guys being old for the class (including potential Dodgers target Bubba Thompson). Additionally, injury concerns plague several second tier prep arms, with potential first day picks Joe Perez and CJ Van Eyk being of particular concern.

The collegiate class is fairly deep in catching prospects that should see major league time, albeit few look like first division capable starters. Wisconsin Milwaukee catcher Dalton Varsho shows the most potential to blossom into a starting catcher with a well rounded offensive profile, and Baseball America even mocked him in the first round to the Cubs. Beyond Varsho, the draft has all flavors of 6’0 200-ish pound catchers to chose from on the second day.

Like the last two years, my list will be missing some names that otherwise should likely be included, because I was not able to find sufficient video to offer my own opinion. This year, the biggest names not listed are Arkansas RHP Blaine Knight, Tennessee prep RHP Steven Jennings, and Texas prep OF Mason House. Should info change between now and Monday, I will make their inclusions noted over the weekend.

Outside of that, this list was prepped by reviewing the names on draft lists at both Baseball America and MLB Pipeline and fitting the players into my traditional tier ranking structure. If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments, or send me a message on twitter @davidchood. Enjoy.
