2012 MLB Draft Top 100 Prospects 2.0

The 2012 MLB Draft is just over a month away, and the scouting season is in full swing. This year's class is shaping up to be a strong one on the high school side, but still appears to be wide open when it comes to the top college talent. Inside is our most updated top-100 draft prospects list, which is likely to change quite a bit between now and June.

The strength of the 2012 MLB Draft is clearly going to be its high school bats. As we draw closer to the big day it's clear that we will not see the type of college pitching that we saw drafted in 2011. The top of the class is still very much in flux, but despite its weaknesses, this is not a draft to be underestimated.

Not only are the high school bats a strength, but the pitching from the high school side is quite a deep crop as well. Beyond the currently injured Lucas Giolito, there may not be a Dylan Bundy in the lot of them, but there will be power arms available well beyond the top couple rounds.

Scouts have also spent the spring trying to figure out a difficult group of college bats. Beyond players like Mike Zunino, polished collegiate hitters are not quite as plentiful this year as they've been in years past. Players like Richie Shaffer and Stephen Piscotty have done their best to step forward, however.

With all that said, we present to you Scout's updated Top 100 Prospects list for the 2012 MLB Draft. This list will continue to be updated between now and June, and first-hand scouting reports will continue to be added.
