No. 10: Walker Jenkins, Minnesota Twins

Jenkins is a prime example of my earlier statement about how prospects are evolving. At just 18, he already has a claim for having the most power out of any outfield prospect, with mlb.com calling it “plus-plus power.”

A solid defender at all three outfield spots, Jenkins is a well-rounded player whose true calling card is his production at the plate. He can hit to all fields, with prodigious power potential to the pull side.

In 12 A ball games last year, the fifth overall pick in the 2023 draft hit .392 with an OPS north of 1.000. Jenkins will be 19 first the entirety of the 2024 season, and will likely rise the ranks of the minor leagues.

No. 9: Max Clark, Detroit Tigers

The second of the recently drafted players out of high school, Max Clark had some of the most hype surrounding him out of high school players in recent memory.

This hype was warranted, as Clark is a true five-tool player. At the plate, Clark can spray the ball all over the field, with decent power numbers that can certainly be improved upon.

However, it’s the other tools that make Clark so special. He ran a 6.3 sixty-yard dash, which translates in the game with excellent base running. He also is a fantastic center fielder with a great arm (topped 97 on the mound).

While Clark struggled through his first 11 games in A ball, this is far too small of a sample size to be worried at all. The pure potential of Clark could vault him into the top overall prospect conversation next year, as he is a true 30/30 threat.

No. 8: Colton Cowser, Baltimore Orioles

Cowser is one of those players who just simply rakes.  Via mlb.com, “A 6-foot-3 left-handed hitter, Cowser combines an outstanding swing, bat speed, and good plate discipline to make him a dangerous all-around hitter. He was known more as a hit-over-power type, but the pop is very real and showed up in his first full season. He understands the strike zone, leading to 94 walks in 2022.” (via mlb.com).

2023 was more of the same from Cowser, as he belted 17 homers with a .300 average in AAA. While there is some swing and miss to his game, the high average and power offset that.

Cowser struggled in his first 26 MLB games, but expect him to come back with a vengeance in the middle of the Orioles lineup in 2024.

No. 7: Roman Anthony, Boston Red Sox

I’ve written about Anthony before, and for good reason. In 2023, Anthony was one of two players in AA. The other one? Jackson Holliday, the top overall prospect in baseball.

Anthony struggled to get results in A ball, as he hit just .228. However, I like to equate this to Juan Soto’s first half of 2022, where he was hitting the ball hard but not getting results. Even more like Soto, Anthony was adept at drawing walks in A ball, with 38 in 42 games.

However, as Anthony kept getting promoted, he just kept raking. He blasted 12 homers with a .294 average and .981 OPS in just 52 games. In AA, Anthony was even more productive, with a .324 average and an OPS over 1.

The big calling for Anthony is his prodigious power. Take a look at this absolute bomb hit by Anthony in the 2021 High School All-American game.

Anthony had just turned 17 at the time. This ball traveled 450 feet. Some players have played a long time in the MLB that don’t sniff the distance that Anthony reached as a Junior in High School.

No. 6: Pete Crow-Armstrong, Chicago Cubs

Crow-Armstrong is another one of those players who just seems to excel at everything.

Through his first two minor league seasons, he’s hit a total of .301, 36 homers, and 71 stolen bases while shooting through the ranks of the minors.

These two stats are two of the most important in fantasy baseball, and Crow-Armstrong excels at both of them.

Furthermore, there is only proof that he’s getting better, as both his home run total and stolen base total rose in 2023 despite playing against tougher competition.

While the strikeout numbers (237 in two minor league years) are alarming, managers can live with that from the super-talented Armstrong. At worst, his excellent defense will keep him on the field at all times.

No. 5: James Wood, Washington Nationals

Out of all of the top-hitting prospects on this list, Wood is the guy I would bet on first to hit 30 or 40 homers. The physically imposing (6’6 and 240 pound) lefty has a beautiful swing that generates a ton of power.

In 128 games between A and AA, Wood belted 26 homers and 28 doubles, good for an OPS north of .900.

This power production also hasn’t come in the way of average, as Wood has hit .291 across the minors so far. While strikeouts are a big concern for Wood, he has time to fix that problem to the next level.

No. 4: Wyatt Langford, Texas Rangers

It just seemed like yesterday that the Rangers were reeling after signing two top free agents only to finish at the bottom of the American League.

However, just a short year later; the Rangers won the World Series and have two top prospects on this list, with the first being Langford out of Florida.

Langford had an amazing run at UF, capped off with leading his squad to the CWS finals. In 2023, Langford hit .357 while belting 21 homers in only 57 games, good for an OPS near 1.300.

This fantastic play vaulted him into the fourth pick of the draft, where he was scooped up by the eventual champs.

Langford’s experience sprung him straight into high-A ball, where he proved to be too good for the competition, hitting .333 with an OPS of 1.097, and stealing seven bases in just 24 games.

Langford made it all the way to AA after being drafted; and excelled there, hitting an absurd .405 with four homers in just ten games. Look for Langford to be in the majors as early as July of next year.

No. 3: Dylan Crews, Washington Nationals

On the other side of the aforementioned 2023 CWS was Crews, who led his LSU Tigers over the Gators to take home the trophy.

Despite all of Langford’s success in college, it was Crews who stole the show as the more talented outfielder.

Crews capped off an incredible college career in which he never hit below .300 in a season with an absolutely astounding 2023. In this season, Crews hit .426, with a mind-boggling .567 OBP and 1.280 OPS, cementing his spot as the best collegiate position player in the country.

Crews wasted no time getting to work after getting drafted, going 3-3 in his only game in rookie ball. He didn’t stop after getting promoted, as he raked to the tune of a .355 average and five homers in 14 games in A ball.

Although he struggled a little in AA, there is no doubt that Crews is one of the best prospects in all of baseball right now. His incredibly advanced hit tool, combined with improving power and plate discipline make him a top-three outfield prospect in 2024.

No. 2: Evan Carter, Texas Rangers

A prospect who circulated the top 15 in 2023, we knew Evan Carter was good. However, I don’t think the most optimistic of analysts could have predicted how well his first couple of months in the MLB could have gone.

At just 21, Carter played the last 23 games of the Rangers season in the middle of a playoff push. While this is an overwhelming situation for most players, Carter excelled, hitting .307 with five homers, good for an OPS above 1.

This earned him a spot in the three-hole in the lineup for the playoffs, where the legend of Evan Carter’s first taste of the big leagues grew.

Young players can often let the moment get too big for them in the playoffs, but this definitely wasn’t the case with Carter.

Throughout the playoffs, Carter hit an even .300 with six homers, as he was a key part of the playoff success for the Rangers.

He showed a willingness to drive the ball to all fields, handling both fastballs and offspeed with ease.

This offensive onslaught didn’t come out of nowhere, however. In Carter’s last two minor league years, he hit .290 with 23 homers and 54 stolen bases.

The speed, fielding,  and overall hitting prowess of Carter has already been on display on the brightest of stages, making him one of the most highly touted prospects of 2024.

No. 1: Jackson Chourio, Milwaukee Brewers

How can someone be a higher-rated prospect than a guy who has dominated in the playoffs?

If there was someone to displace someone like Carter at the top, it would have to be someone who is just oozing potential at all aspects of the game. Fortunately, we have that in Chourio.

This guy is only 19 years old. He won’t turn 20 until the middle of Spring Training this year, which makes his standing as the top prospect even more impressive.

Via mlb.com “Milwaukee realized it needed to find tougher assignments for the Venezuela native in his age-18 season. Chourio skipped right over the domestic Complex league to open with Single-A Carolina in May and ended the year at Double-A, hitting .288/.342/.538 with 20 homers and 16 steals in 99 games across all three levels. He was the only 2022 All-Star Futures Game participant with a 2004 birthdate.”

Who dominates Double-A at only 18? This continued into 2023, as Chourio hit .283 with 22 homers across AA and AAA. Even more impressive, he stole 44 bases this year, showing his full potential.

Chourio should be in the MLB at some point next year. The last International prospect that looked ready to dominate this young has turned out pretty well so far. His name? Juan Soto.

I’m very optimistic that Chourio can provide a similar impact right away
