Welcome to the 2016 Reader Top 30!
Well, here we go. This should take us right up to pitchers and catchers in February. They are scheduled to report on the 17th. The first workout will be on the 18th. Just 44 days.
As I mentioned over the weekend, I expect to post most week days. The first ballot is comprised of the 22 players who make up MLB’s top twenty and Baseball America’s top ten. I’ll add names as needed. I expect to add about 10-15 names before we reach #10. If I think it is warranted, I’ll remove names to make room for additional candidates.
If you want to suggest a player you think I may overlook, you can make the request among the Comments section or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org using the Subject Line – Add Prospect. The Other option (a write-in, if you will) is also available, however I may have to turn it off it it is abused as it was last year.
As I mentioned earlier, we will follow MLB’s and Baseball America’s standards for prospects by considering any player eligible for rookie status as eligible for this poll. If you have a completed list of your own and would like to forward it to me, you can e-mail it to me at email@example.com using the Subject – My Prospect List.
