Here's the year-end Top 100 Prospects list – MLB.com

The last time we updated our Top 100 Prospects list was back in a full re-rank at the end of July. Now that the Minor League season and playoffs are over, we had a minute to look back and see if anything needed tweaking.

The result of that audit is our final market correction. We were pretty aggressive this time, after making moderate changes in May and larger corrections in June, with changes up and down the list. This should put us in good shape to watch the Arizona Fall League and head into the offseason ready to tackle the Top 100 again early in 2019.

The Top 15

 Alex Kirilloff, OF, Twins (No. 30 to No. 10)
All the 2018 Futures Gamer did was finish with a .348/.392/.578 line to go along with 20 homers and 101 RBIs across two levels of Class A ball after missing 2017 due to Tommy John surgery.

 Wander Franco, SS, Rays (No. 40 to No. 14)
Signed in July 2017, Franco had one of the most stirring professional, and United States, debuts in recent memory, making the Rookie-level Appalachian League look easy with a .351/.418/.587 line with 11 homers and 57 RBIs in 61 games.

He had one of the better pro debuts of any 2018 first-rounder, with a .294/.364/.588 line, 13 homers and 40 RBIs, mostly in the short-season Northwest League while also throwing out 39 percent of potential basestealers.

 Dylan Cease, RHP, White Sox (No. 44 to No. 25)
MLB Pipeline’s Pitcher of the Year, Cease actually produced better numbers once he reached Double-A and finished the year with a 2.40 ERA, .189 batting average against and an 11.6 K/9 rate.
