New, 3 comments

A number of you continued voting on the organization’s top prospects, so we extended the list to 40.

Brock Burke is the No. 31 prospect in the organization
Jim Donten

After a week of voting on top prospects after the top 30, I’ve calculated the results and added the next 10 players to the list.

There was a tie between Nick Ciuffo and Ryan Boldt, and I broke it by counting the number of different ballots they were on.

An astounding 29 total players were listed at least once on the additional ballots sent in. It’s a testament to the system’s depth and your knowledge of all these players that so many were named in the process.

Thanks to everyone who voted and participated in the discussion this offseason. We’re only a few weeks away from baseball.

I was asked to provide a table with vote counts for the final 10 like last year, so here it is.
