2023 FUTURES

2023_FUTURESThis Year once again the Mid-West Baseball League will be supporting MLB Pipelines Top 100 Prospects.
Former MWBL owner of the Iron City Yinzers Jonathan Mayo, along with his colleague Jim Callis – will bring us the 2023 MWBL FUTURES.

Thanks, Jonathan & Jim, you guys do a great job at mlb.com & the Mid-West Baseball League is once again proud to have called one of you our own.

The MWBL always has an eye toward the future, & looks at which MWBL Franchises may have the brightest future ahead of them. The formula used for the “MWBL FUTURES” list is based on a 100-point system. The Top Prospect, according to Jonathan Mayo & Jim Callis of mlb.com receives 100 points, the second-rated prospect receives 99 points, and this continues until the #100th prospect, who receives 1 point.

Each MWBL franchise will then have the points totaled for their prospects, which gives us an overall number and produces our “MWBL FUTURES” list. Here is the much-anticipated list for “MWBL FUTURE”.

2023 PROSPECTS & POINTS / 2023 TOTAL TEAM POINTS / 2023 DRAFT POINTS
2023 PRE-DRAFT RANKINGS2023 YEARLY RANKING 

MLB Pipeline team compiles the rankings using input from industry sources, including scouts, scouting directors, and other evaluators. The rankings are an aggregate analysis, taking the players’ skill set, upside, proximity to the Majors, and potential immediate impact on their teams into account.

The list only includes players with rookie status in 2023, meaning players who debuted in ’22 but did not accumulate the service time (45 days on the active roster), at-bats (130), or innings pitched (50) to graduate are eligible again this year. First-year players who fall outside of the international pool money rules laid out in the Collective Bargaining Agreement — that is, who are at least 23 years old and played in international leagues deemed professional — are not eligible. That excludes some older rookies debuting after careers in places like Japan, Korea, and Cuba.
