2015/2016 MLB Draft Rankings (May 2014): 2015 College, 2016 College & 2015-16 High School


It's obviously too early to know the strength of this draft class over a year in advance, but with a lot of notes on underclassmen trickling in, it seemed like a good time to present what I have so far. I've already seen 9 of the top 11 prospects, should be seeing Lemoine in two weeks and will see Staumont on the Cape. I've seen about half of the rest of the list and I should be able to get first looks at the others soon, as nearly all of the prospects listed will be on the Cape or with Team USA this summer.

Matuella has separated himself this spring and would be a top 10-15 pick in this year's draft, if eligible; he's jumped from a mid-80's thrower in high school to the mid-90's in his sophomore year at Duke. Happ went from unknown prospect to elite with a breakout Cape last summer, but is likely limited to second base defensively. Bregman made the leap in his freshman year at LSU after a serious knee injury marred his high school senior spring, but he's had some trouble with timing at the plate in his sophomore campaign.

Here's a video of Matuella in an outing vs. UNC from earlier this spring. I have videos, reports and other content on many of the players listed below, so click on their names for more information. 2016 college and 2015/16 high school lists will be out in the coming days, followed by an expanded 2014 combined list and lots of scouting reports.
