Yoan Moncada tops 2017 midseason Prospect list | MLB.com

One theme at the very top is youth. At age 22, Moncada is the elder statesman. Rosario is 21 and the next eight are 20 or younger. There are a pair of teenagers now in the top 10: Vladimir Guerrero Jr. of the Blue Jays and Ronald Acuna of the Braves.
1. Yoan Moncada, 2B, White Sox
2. Amed Rosario, SS, Mets
3. Gleyber Torres, INF, Yankees
4. Rafael Devers, 3B, Red Sox
5. Victor Robles, OF, Nationals
6. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 3B, Blue Jays
7. Eloy Jimenez, OF, White Sox
8. Ronald Acuna, OF, Braves
9. Brendan Rodgers, SS/2B, Rockies

Baseball Prospectus | Dynasty Prospect Rankings

Finally, a reminder of ground rules here. This list is designed for keep-forever dynasty leagues without salaries or contracts, and with separate farm systems. It’s based on a medium-sized league, generally around 14-16 teams, and assumes one catcher rather than two. Home parks and organizations are factored in, as well as paths to playing time, since fantasy owners do care about these things. And as far as the player pools go, we are including anyone with prospect eligibility (regardless of whether they’re in the majors or not), and this year we are including recent draftees.

Also, at the behest of several commenters who’ve weighed in on our past lists, we’ve added “Fantasy Impact ETA” to try and give you a sense as to when we think these players can be relied upon as fantasy assets—not necessarily when we think they’ll first be summoned to the majors. We’ve listed Preseason Rank, or “PS Rank,” next to each player as well so you can get a sense as to their movement.
