2012 Chicago White Sox Consensus Top 36 Prospects


I have created a cumulative prospect list for each team based on other (more knowledgeable) peoples’ lists. Each time a prospect appears on a list, he gets a number of points (21 minus his ranking). The prospect with the largest amount of points is ranked first. I will be posting each team once they have been completed by all of my sources. You can find a link to all of the other teams top prospects on the Team Prospects page. Clicking on the links below will take you to the team’s list on each respective site.

Five of the lists were not updated to account for the Simon Castro acquisition. In order to account for this, I found Castro’s average ranking from the rest of the lists (#5) and ranked him there on the five lists that missed him. I then re-ranked everyone else below him on that list. The points are still added up in the same way as before.
