2015 Oakland Athletics Unified Top Prospect ListPosted: February 23, 2015
It’s that time of year again–unified prospect list season! It seems that these lists come out later every year. I want to just get these finished and done with before the season starts, so those sources that have not completed their rankings yet (looking at you MLB dot com…) will not be included in this combined list.
I scrapped much of the additional coverage this year (like the graphical representation and prospects missing from the list from last year) due to time constraints.
The Athletics have quite a few special cases due to transactions throughout the offseason. If a player was missed on a certain list, they were given the average ranking of the other lists which did rank him.
