On Wednesday, both Baseball America and the baseball leaflet released their lists of the top 100 leaflets for the preseason (their lists remain lower in this feature and the average ranks now cover all three top 100 titles) ,
On Saturday, MLB Pipeline's turn (last 2018 in parentheses):
3. Eloy Jiménez, OF (as in the previous year)
18th Michael Kopech, RHP (a post from 19th place)
21st Dylan Cease, RHP (up to four places in 25th place)
40th Luis Robert, OF (up to four places from No. 44)
47th Nick Madrigal, 2B (two points from no. 49 removed)
80. Dane Dunning, RHP (at 21
Five players in the Top 50 !
The MLB pipeline maintains its latest updated list for the year as the "season" ranking, so the 2018 ranks are not from a full year ago. However, it is still instructive to see the elevation differences.
Four of the five best viewpoints of the White Sox moved up. Eloy can not go anywhere. Kopech got a punch despite his TJS. Cease made a predictable step forward from number 25. Robert continues to march up and is preparing for a big jump in 2019. Madrigal's profit was modest.
Dunning got a big boost from the MLB, which in view of the aforementioned conservative movements strangely appears to him on the list, and the fact that Kopech and Robert did not seem to be punished for injuries. And Rutherford, ranked 77th last time, fell completely out of the top 100. For what? After the season take a few weeks off? Sheesh.
Bottom right is a reissue of the Baseball America and Baseball Prospectuses to ensure continuity and thoroughness. Feel free to look down to see the new average rankings of the outlook.
A big question that turned out to be exclusively for South Side Sox in BA on Monday (let us know that five Chicago White Sox prospects have landed in the top 100). was, if all five would crack the top 50.
Not quite. Would you be satisfied with the Top 76? Would you be okay with six White Sox in BP's Top 76?
First, let's take a look at Baseball America s List (2018 rows in parentheses):
3. Eloy Jiménez, OF (removed a digit from number 4)
21. Michael Kopech , RHP (10 digits less than 11)
38. Dylan Cease, RHP (unrated)
43. Nick Madrigal, 2B (unrated)
76. Luis Robert, OF (18 points from no 58)
In a move that was tough but was expected after Monday's news, RHP Dane Dunning dropped to # 82 on last year's list and dropped out of BA's Top 100.  Want even better news? BP had nearly four White Sox in the top 25! Here is the list of the baseball leaflet (2018 in brackets):
4. Eloy Jiménez, OF (two places removed from number 6)
15. Nick Madrigal, 2B (not rated)
24. Michael Kopech, RHP (seven digits, from No. 17)
26. Dylan Cease, RHP (unrated)
45. Luis Robert, OF (up to 10 digits from No. 55)
76th Dane Dunning, OF (up to 13 points at # 89)
Six Top 100 picks have swelled, but keep in mind that the White Sox placed eight years ago: Yep, Alec Hansen (# 40) In 2018, Jake Burger (# 84) and Blake Rutherford (# 90) were all out of BP's Top 100.
Here is a look at the average ranking of the three published top 100 lists far (Baseball America, Baseball Prospectus, MLB Pipeline):
Eloy Jiménez (average rank, 3.3): Only MLB held Eloy in third place – but then only MLB Eloy had ranked third at the end of last year.
Michael Kopech (21): Kopech was not knocked too hard for a mixed MLB debut or his TJS injury / rehab that will stop him for 2019. Instead, both lists, though he was careful of the severity of his injury, preferred to consider his excellent Triple A season appropriately. Kudos to MLB for actually bringing Kopech up one place.
Dylan Cease (28.3): The march into the top 10 continues for Cease, who has made great leaps on the BA and BP list and is still in a healthy four-point jump with MLB, the already had the right-hander in the top 25 With Rick Hahn Cease essentially relying on Kopech for 2019 (Triple-A and a call after the All-Star break), it makes sense that Cease also turns to Kopech's tail in the prospect list.
Nick Madrigal (35): BP's madrigal love is really shocking. No. 15 makes it impossible, as in 2019, high. Impressive. MLB and BA appear somewhat more realistic in the 1940s.
Luis Robert (53.7): The most fascinating contrast of all countries to Robert. BA decided not wrongly for Robert because he had missed the entire regular season 2018. Meanwhile, BP must have been a challenge to Robert AFL's work this fall and brought him up 10 seats despite his All-Absentia 2018 season. MLB pushed Robert to four places from her last 2018 ranking.
Dane Dunning (88): This is not really fair since BA has not even ranked Dunning in the top 100 MLB, Dunning is still considered the top 100 players. Someone at BP really digs the cream of the White Sox crop. While BA used Dunning's late elbow problems to remove him from the list (ignoring an almost as inspiring season as Ceases), BP Dunning not only retained a place in the top 100, but pushed him on  , MLB split the difference and placed it high on the rankings of last 2018 (# 59) but dropped it, inexplicably, by 21 places.
