This year, BaseballNewsHound.com is offering readers comprehensive scouting data on the Top 222 Prospects in Major League Baseball. Earlier this month we ranked the top 101 pitching prospects for 2012 and posted scouting reports grouped by prospect tier. To complete this year’s installment of our preseason prospect rankings we’ve posted rankings and scouting data on the top 121 Hitting (non-pitchers) prospects.
To more effectively rank prospects, we’ve accounted for the inherent positional value gap between hitters and pitchers by publishing separate spreadsheets for each group of individuals. The player’s included in our rankings must have:
1) Less than 150 career at bats(non-pitchers), 50 innings pitched (starting pitchers) and 30 innings pitched (relievers) in the Major Leagues;
2) Must be under contract with one of the 30 Major League Baseball Organizations
