2016 Position Rankings: Outfield

OFThis year’s crop of outfielders likely won’t measure up to last year’s, but that’s not to say there isn’t plenty to like. The top four prospects would have measured up quite favorably in 2015, but after Mickey Moniak, there’s a pretty steep drop-off.

Still, Corey Ray (Louisville), Kyle Lewis (Mercer), Blake Rutherford (California HS), and Moniak (California HS) should be All-Star caliber players. All should also be gone by the time the Twins pick at #15.

These rankings are current as of 5/22/16 and will be updated throughout the draft season.
