Four Royals Make MLB.com's Top 100 Prospect List

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Royals are ranked sixth out of organizations in their Prospect Points, which I assume are based on Ron Polk Points.

The Royals may no longer have the Best Farm System in the History of Whatever, but the system still looks strong according to the metric of "most prospects in the MLB.com Top 100 Prospect List." MLB.com revealed their list yesterday, and it comes fresh with four Royals. According to "Prospect Points", a weighted system based on how many prospects an organization placed in the top 100 (and not, unfortunately, based on Ron Polk Points), the Royals placed sixth among all organizations.

Here are your four Royals of the future.

25. RHP Kyle Zimmer

35. RHP Yordano Ventura

38. SS Raul Adalberto Mondesi

91. OF Jorge Bonifacio

Among the notables dropping off the list are OF Bubba Starling, who was ranked #26 last year. Christian Colon is also a shocking oversight! Not really.

Twins outfielder Byron Buxton was the #1 overall prospect.

MLB.com is perhaps not the most respected prospect list (they tend to carryover the list from last year a bit too much), but it does carry some weight I suppose. Jonathan Mayo's face is on this prospect list, so I assume MLB.com just uses Jim Callis to go get coffee or something.

Scout.com also has their Top 100 list which features seven Royals (Zimmer, Ventura, Mondesi, Bonifacio, as well as RHP Miguel Almonte, 3B Hunter Dozier, and LHP Sean Manaea).

Keith Law has said his prospect list is coming out Wednesday. Baseball America and Baseball Prospectus generally come out with theirs in late January/early February.
