Hardest Hitters on Baseball America’s MLB Top Draft Prospects List

Baseball America has released their Top 500 MLB Draft Prospect List for the 2021 season. 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. 

If you’re curious to know a little more about just how hard the top MLB draft prospects mash taters, here are the Top 20 Player Exit Velocities from the Top 500 MLB Draft Prospects list (as of July 8th, 2021).
