2015 Position Rankings: 1B (Updated!!!)

1bAnother weakness of this draft class is the lack of any clear top prospect at the first base position.

Coming into the 2015 campaign, Boston College slugger Chris Shaw seemed to have that spot locked down, before he broke a bone in his hand and was forced to miss most of the second half of the season. The only real thing to get excited about at the position is the tantalizing crop of high-school prospects who are dripping with size, speed and athleticism.

These rankings are current as of 6/4/15, and will be updated throughout the draft season.
