MLB.com?s annual ranking of the best young prospects in baseball will be revealed on Top 50 Prospects on MLB Network and simulcast on MLB.com on Tuesday, January 29 at 9:00 p.m. ET. Using information from scouting directors, scouts and industry sources, the complete list, which includes the top 100 prospects, is based on each player's skill set, high upside, closeness to the Major Leagues and potential immediate impact to their team. Players eligible for the ranking, including Trevor Bauer (Cleveland Indians), Dylan Bundy (Baltimore Orioles), Wil Myers (Tampa Bay Rays) and Jurickson Profar (Texas Rangers), must have rookie status for the upcoming 2013 season. Top-ranked prospects from the 2012 Top 50 Prospects list included Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Matt Moore, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Mike Trout and Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper.

Hosted by MLB Network?s Greg Amsinger, the show will feature analysis by MLB Network analyst John Hart, the former general manager of the 1995 and 1997 American League Champion Cleveland Indians, and MLB.com draft and prospect expert Jonathan Mayo (@JonathanMayoB3). The special also will feature interviews with three of the top four picks. Complete rankings, including prospects 51-100, position and team lists, can be found at MLBPipeline.com (@MLBPipeline). MLB Network will keep its social media followers updated throughout the show using #Top50Prospects through its presence on Facebook and Twitter.

    • Back when we signed Odor, my eyes rolled, probably a medically unsafe distance back into my skull. It took awhile, but he grew on me. Gritty, red-assing, bluster and pimping beyond his skill set, but he grudgingly grew on me. When he was flailing at the plate, and we started to show signs of life, I gnashed teeth, clutched pearls, and silently questioned Hyde's manhood. Recently, I realized Odor is not going to be here beyond this year, and decided to simply appreciate his contributions towards, lets face it, what was looking to be another very shit*y, tank-worthy team. I believe I'll eventually look upon him fondly, in what has been an amazing season, no matter how it turns out. So, a hat tip to you, Mr. Rougned Odor, for your contribution, and also, for snapping Joey Bats head back like a human pez dispenser. That was awesome.  
    • I've been very pleasantly surprised by Mountcastle's speed, and more recently, AR, even Vavra, and blown away by Gunnar..... So, yes, I am also surprised and a bit perplexed by Stowers foot speed (or perceived lack there of). Weirdly, it looks like Stowers is tentative, or something mental more than physical ability to move quickly. But just my impression, nothing to back it up.
    • He is also slower than he looks like he should be which is kind of the opposite of what I normally feel about guys that come up.  Mountcastle, Adley, and Gunnar all struck me as faster than I expected, e.g.
    • Agreed, just from a purely logistics perspective it wouldn't surprise me if both he and Gillaspie are optioned after tonight's game, and someone like Sulser and Vespi are brought up. 
    • He also really looked bad missing that tag at second tonight.   Sometimes it seems his head is not in the game. 
    • I don't see that changing either.  I think he is what he is at the plate.  He could still bring a lot of value in a reserve role. 
    • He can only come back up to replace an injured player. But he would qualify for post season play...
