Introtopic: Predicting the Top Prospects of the Future
As the future of Major League Baseball gets closer and closer, it’s important to look ahead and try to predict who the next wave of superstars will be. That’s why we’re taking a look at who we believe will be the top prospects in each farm system come spring 2025. These are the players that could be the future of the game, and the ones that could make the biggest impact on the sport.
It isn’t easy to predict who the top prospects of the future will be, but we’re giving it a go. We’ve selected players from all 30 farm systems, and many of them have already shown the potential to be stars. From the Orioles’ Jackson Holliday, the No. 1 pick in the 2022 Draft, to the Royals’ Gavin Cross, the 2022 first-rounder who already has five-tool potential, to the Tigers’ Jackson Jobe, the 20-year-old right-hander who is already proving his skills can translate to the pros, there’s no shortage of talent.
We’ve also selected some lesser-known prospects who are on the verge of becoming household names. The Rays’ Carson Williams, the 2021 first-round pick, has already looked like a stellar defender at a premium position, and the Angels’ Edgar Quero made a splash in his 47 games of full-season ball, with an OPS over 1.000. The Mariners’ Harry Ford, the first-round pick in 2021, is super athletic and could be a true five-tool backstop, and the Rangers’ Brock Porter, MLB Pipeline’s top-rated pitching prospect, shattered the fourth-round bonus record.
These are the players who could very well be the stars of the future. They’re the ones to watch over the next few years, and the ones who could make the biggest impact on the game. So keep an eye out for these players, and don’t be surprised if they make their mark on the sport in the years to come.
