A's Top-50 Prospect Coverage Starting Soon

The start of November marks the beginning of our annual Oakland A's top-50 prospects coverage. Starting next Tuesday, every Tuesday and Thursday will be dedicated to coverage of the A's top-50 prospects. Click inside for a preview of our coverage.

Since 2005, we have been bringing readers in-depth coverage of the Oakland A's top-50 prospects. Starting on November 4, we will launch our coverage of the A's top-50 prospects going into the 2009 season.

Traditionally, we have counted down the prospects from 50 to 1 and then announced the entire list at the end of the process. This year, we are going to change it up a bit. In the past, trades made in late-November/early-December have altered our rankings. On Tuesday, we will unveil to subscribers our top-50 list before the trading seasons starts. In January, we will reveal a revised top-50 list, should the A's make trades that impact our original list.

Starting next Thursday, subscribers will receive in-depth scouting reports on each of the A's top-50 prospects, beginning with prospect 50. Every Tuesday and Thursday, there will be scouting reports on five of the A's prospects. Subscribers will also have the opportunity to debate our choices for the top-50 list on our subscribers-only messageboard.
