We've seen a number of prospects who appeared on my offseason Top 100 rankings promoted to the big leagues in the past few weeks, including Anthony Rizzo, Dustin Ackley, Randall Delgado, Mike Moustakas, and Ben Revere. I updated the top 25 on that list right before the draft, including fresh takes on three of those guys, but a few unranked players have reached the majors, some finding regular roles and most worthy of some kind of comment. Here are capsules on six of those players, one of whom stands out, with notes on their eventual ceilings.
