2. SS Willy Adames (59.1%)
3. 1B/OF Jake Bauers (60.6% in runoff)
4. RHP Brent Honeywell (50.0%)
5. RHP Taylor Guerrieri (57.5%)
6. SS Daniel Robertson (64.3%)

29. 3B Patrick Leonard (23.1%)
30. RHP Burch Smith (25.8%)

Quite a few nice prospects came up short, including some who were not even nominated. I tallied up all the votes of the remaining nominated players to continue the list. Ties were broken by whoever received a vote first. If that was also a tie, the player who received the most votes in any given round wins.

31. 2B Kean Wong (21)
32. OF Jesus Sanchez (13)
33. RHP Yonny Chirinos (13)
34. OF Dayron Varona (8)
35. C David Rodriguez (7)
36. C Luke Maile (6)
37. C Nick Ciuffo (6)
38. RHP Ryne Stanek (5)
