Postseason Prospect Rankings: Top 30 Position Players

Now that I have run through all of the individual positions, it is time to unveil my overall 30 best position player prospects from the 2009 Cape Cod League. My criteria was pretty simple. If I was conducting a Major League draft consisting only of position players from the 2009 Cape League, regardless of their next year of draft eligibility, who would I take? The link within the players' names is the standard link to their college profile pages. The link within their position is a link to my Top 5 (or Top 10 for outfielders) rankings page, where you can read my scouting report of that player. The players' next year of draft eligibility is noted in parentheses. If there are no parentheses, that player is eligible in 2010.

Note: I have been struggling since the Top 2 players arrived on the Cape about seven weeks ago about who is No. 1 and who is No. 2. It is still pretty much a toss-up.
