MLB.com's 2008 Postseason Top 50 Prospects list has the usual exciting array of power arms, power bats and power legs. All have the potential to be standout Major Leaguers. Who will be the stars of the game? Only time will tell, but the Top 50 list should give you an idea of what scouts around baseball are thinking.
* Nick Adenhart was killed in a car accident on April 9, 2009. He maintains his ranking on the list because it was based on a poll that rated the prospects as they stood prior to the 2009 season.
(Editor's note: To be eligible for the Top 50 list, players must have rookie eligibility. To qualify for rookie status, a player must not have exceeded 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the Major Leagues, or accumulated more than 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club or clubs during the 25-player limit period, excluding time on the disabled list or in military service.)
