2012 Top 10 Shortstop Prospects


This year's shortstop prospect class is considerably strong and deeper and that of 2010 and 2011. All 10 of these guys have a shot to make my top 100 (Coming Soon). Jurickson Profar and Manny Machado are virtual locks to both appear in the top 10 on that list and run neck and neck on this positional list. In the end, I favor Profar's plate discipline (12.6 BB%, 1.03 BB/K ratio).


1. Jurickson Profar - Bats: B Throws: R - 6'0" 170 - TEX - 2.20.93. Signed: Curacao - 2009.
