MLB Prospect Report: Trade Deadline Analysis
Matt Selz breaks down all of the key prospects on the move during Monday's MLB Trade Deadline and covers the latest call-ups in this week's Prospect Report.
The Trade Deadline was a frenzy this year as the abbreviated season and the expanded playoffs really made teams want to go for it, even teams we weren’t expecting to make moves were buyers at the deadline. First we’ll talk about a couple of key prospects that were called up this week and then break down the significant moves that were made on Monday and over the weekend. At the bottom you’ll see my updated Team Rankings for how the systems rank (when looking at the Top-300 prospects). The Top-300 has also been updated to account for prospects that have graduated prospect status and to account for the players that changed teams during the trade deadline. Just as a side note, there were a lot of deals made for players to be named later (PTBNL) and so it’s hard to tell exactly who those players will be as teams have a few months to hammer out those details to finalize the trade. If the PTBNL is known, they are possibly included in the write-up below.
