Fastest Pitchers on Baseball America’s Top 2021 MLB Draft Prospect List

Baseball America released their 500 Top 2021 MLB Draft Prospects List. Since 85% of players on this list use Rapsodo data for player development and evaluation, we decided to make some rankings of our own based on their data. 

Just how hard are these top prospects throwing? We ranked the top 20 pitchers by velocity below:
