2021 Organizational Reports

The Organization Reports are BaseballHQ.com's annual comprehensive look at each team's top minor leaguers, as compiled by our staff. For 2021, we have adjusted our format to reflect the cancelled 2020 minor league season. Two things to aid you through this process: 

Our 2021 edition includes an updated Top 15 prospect list; whether the player was invited to the alternate camp, played in the majors, or neither; a player grade (explained below and in the Primer article) and an up dated MLB ETA. In addition, we examine players who, in relation to the 2020 lists:

  • Graduated or are no longer in the Top 15
  • Are first-timers to the list
  • Experienced an overall grade change

Each report ends with some quick-hit notes about some of the players not covered otherwise. We look forward to sharing these reports, and to revealing our overall HQ100 list the week of January 11, 2021.
