Baseball America's Top 30 prospects is listed in their Prospect Handbook, which is published in hard copy and was sent out in the mail this week.

The list was sent to the publisher prior to the Alex Torres/Logan Forsythe trade that brought back quality prospects in RHRP Brad Boxberger, RHSP Matt Andriese, RHRP Matt Lollis, and INF/C Maxx Tissenbaum. It's reasonable to believe the former two may have challenged for the Top 30.

Baseball America's Top 30 for 2014:

1. RHP Jake Odorizzi
2. SS Hak-Ju Lee
3. RHP Taylor Guerrieri
4. LHP Enny Romero
5. RHP Alex Colome
6. OF Andrew Toles
7. C Nick Ciuffo
8. 2B Ryan Brett

10. OF Kevin Kiermaier

11. RHP Ryne Stanek
12. C Justin O'Conner
13. 1B/3B Richie Shaffer
14. LHP Blake Snell
15. RHP Jesse Hahn (traded to San Diego)
16. LHP Grayson Garvin
17. LHP Felipe Rivero
18. SS Jake Hager
19. SS Riley Unroe
20. OF Drew Vettleson

21. RHP Jose Mujica
22. 3B Tyler Goeddel
23. LHP C.J. Riefenhauser
