ESPN.com's Keith Law has updated his top-50 prospect rankings and Double-A Frisco shortstop Jurickson Profar is now No. 1 overall. Here's what Law says about him:

Profar has the ultimate mark of an elite prospect. He keeps improving even as he is challenged with better competition. In this case, the Rangers jumped him two levels to Double-A at age 19, where he has continued to hit for average, get on base, make contact, show surprising power for his size, hit from both sides of the plate and play plus defense. There's no real hole in his game, and he looks like he'll be more than ready for the majors before he turns 21 -- another mark of a potential superstar -- if the Rangers can create a spot for him.


There's another Ranger on the list: Mike Olt comes in at No. 46. To read what Law says about him, you'll need to click here (insider).
