by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor)

We’ve broken down the top prospects for each team (click here for the index) and we’ve broken them down by position (click here for the index), so all that’s left to do is throwdown our Top 50 Prospects!  There’s little question regarding who the top prospects around the game are, but how do they rank?

It shouldn’t be surprising that the list is dominated by Pitchers, Shortstops and Outfielders, as that is clearly where the talent is focused.  With that said, how do things shake out?  Where do the top prospects at the other positions fit in?  Let’s take a look:
