Collette Calls: Top 100 Prospects - August Update

Jason Collette

Jason Collette

Jason has been helping fantasy owners since 1999 at RotoJunkie, Fanball, Baseball Prospectus and now here at RotoWire. He covers the Tampa Bay Rays at theprocessreport.net. You can hear Jason weekly on many of the Sirius/XM Fantasy channel offerings throughout the season as well as on the Towers of Power Baseball Hour Podcast on iTunes. He was selected as the Fantasy Baseball Writer of the Year by FSWA in 2013.

Here are my latest rankings with the same caveats as the update last month:

- I tilt more toward fantasy potential than MLB potential (and, yes, there is a difference)
- I take positional history into play (please refer to May's column for explanation)
- I give those who have played in full-season leagues preference over players with only short-season league history and discount recent draftees that have not yet played in the minors.
- I do not rank import players.
- I do not consider college players prospects until they are signed with their major league organization and start producing in the minors. Sorry, no Anthony Rendon here.
- I rarely consider relievers top 100 prospects because nearly all of them need to fail as starting prospects first.
- I do not rank anyone that has already hit the majors this year as I am assuming that someone in your league has grabbed them on the waiver wire.

Several more players earned promotions to the big league roster, so there are some new names in the mix this month. Enjoy!
