  • #5      SS, J.P. Crawford
  • #55   RHP, Jake Thompson
  • #64   OF, Nick Williams
  • #70   RHP, Mark Appel
  • #84   OF, Cornelius Randolph
  • #96   C/1B, Jorge Alfaro
  • #99   OF, Roman Quinn

Crawford still at #5.  Quinn was not ranked in 2015.  Randolph moved up one slot from #85 to #84.  The others dropped slots, some significantly – Appel from #43 to #70, Thompson from #51 to #55, Williams from #55 to #64, Alfaro from #59 to #96.
