For the third straight year, I am ranking the top 25 players in MLB under the age of 25.
To qualify for this ranking, a player must be 24 years or younger as of today (April 24, 2014) and have exhausted his rookie eligibility. In other words, players who appeared on my preseason ranking of the top 100 prospects in MLB -- such as Xander Bogaerts and Nick Castellanos -- will not appear here.
To be clear: This is a ranking of how I would order these players if I were starting a franchise and would have them for the next several years, not just 2014.
