5 Mariners Among Top 100 Prospects

We blogged earlier today that MLB.com and MLB Network would unveil their top 100 prospects.

And we just found out that 5 Mariners are ranked among the top 100.

  • C Jesus Montero (#12)
  • LHP Danny Hultzen (#16)
  • RHP Taijuan Walker (#18)
  • INF Nick Franklin (#52)
  • LHP James Paxton (#77)

The Mariners were one of five organizations to place at least 5 prospects on this year’s Top 100 list. The Padres, Rays and A’s each had six prospects on the list. But they ranked the highest with 329 Prospect Points (100 points to the team with the No. 1 prospect, 99 to the team with No. 2 and on down).

Top Prospect Points
 1.  Seattle               329
 2.  Kansas City           290
 3.  Pittsburgh            276
 4.  Atlanta               267
 5.  Arizona               253

MLB.com writer T.R. Sullivan caught up with Danny Hultzen and General Manager Jack Zduriencik in his piece on Mariners.com. Jonathan Mayo also breaks down the top 100 prospects in this detailed article.

And we can also note that 4 of the 5 players (Montero, Hultzen, Walker, Paxton) will be in town this weekend at FanFest.
