2010 MLB Draft Preview: Top 50 Prospects

The 2010 MLB Draft is mere weeks away and the list of top draft prospects is quickly coming into focus. OaklandClubhouse.com's MLB Draft Analyst John Anderson has spent the last several weeks speaking with scouts and watching draft prospects play. Inside is his current top-50 MLB draft prospect list.

Below is my ranking of the top 50 prospects for the 2010 MLB Draft. It is based on conversations I've had with scouts and includes players I've seen over the last few months.

There will be movement over the next few weeks as there are injury concerns for some and and they have a couple of weeks to solidify their position in the draft. I will have more updates in the coming weeks.
