3 of 15
25. Jonathan India, Cincinnati Reds (2025 Age: 28)
Despite a black alpha to his pro career aback activity No. 5 all-embracing in the 2018 draft, India still has the abhorrent brightness to be an accustomed player.

He’s added hit than power, and he’ll never be added than an boilerplate apostle at third base, but he’s an underrated anticipation account befitting a abutting eye on as the Dodgers array out the approaching at the hot corner.
23. Eugenio Suarez, Cincinnati Reds (2025 Age: 33)
The Reds accept Suarez active through the 2024 division with a $15 actor club advantage for 2025, so it will be absorbing to see if he’s still in Cincinnati bristles years from now. He slugged a career-high 49 home runs in a 3.9-WAR division in 2019, but he additionally led the majors in strikeouts (189), and again he hit aloof .202 with a .312 on-base allotment this year. His swing-and-miss-heavy access won’t age well, but his ability and aegis should.
22. Ryan Vilade, Colorado Rockies (2025 Age: 26)
Vilade abounding up the carbon area at High-A in 2019, hitting .303/.367/.466 with 27 doubles, 10 triples, 12 home runs, 71 RBI, 92 runs denticulate and 24 steals. He has the able beam of any bend infield anticipation in a Colorado arrangement loaded with them, and afterwards starting his pro career at shortstop, he now looks like the beneficiary credible to Nolan Arenado at the hot corner.
21. Isaac Paredes, Detroit Tigers (2025 Age: 26)
Paredes has outgrown the ambush position, but he has the bat to fit at third base. He hit .282/.368/.416 with 23 doubles, 13 home runs and 66 RBI in 127 amateur as a 20-year-old at Double-A in 2019. He’s additionally been raking in the Mexican Winter League, hitting .375/.461/.602 with 21 extra-base hits in 36 games, and he is the arch applicant to be Detroit’s starting third baseman in 2021.
4 of 15

Vientos captivated his own as a 19-year-old in full-season brawl in 2019, hitting .255/.300/.411 with 27 doubles, 12 home runs and 62 RBI in 111 games. His 60-grade ability and able throwing arm fit able-bodied at third base, and he should accept a adventitious to authorize himself in the big leagues afore Brett Baty pushes his way into the MLB picture.
19. Austin Riley, Atlanta Braves (2025 Age: 28)
Riley has slugged 26 home runs in 131 amateur in the majors, but there are a lot of holes in his game. He’s hit aloof .232 with a .288 on-base allotment and 31.2 percent strikeout amount in 503 bowl appearances, and he additionally acquaint animal arresting metrics (-8 DRS, -12.4 UZR/150) at third abject in 2020. His adolescence and ability abeyant accord him a aerial abundant beam to able these rankings, but there’s a lot of assignment to do.
18. Carter Kieboom, Washington Nationals (2025 Age: 27)
Kieboom has looked overmatched at the MLB akin the able two seasons, hitting .181/.309/.232 with 49 strikeouts in 165 bowl appearances. However, his accessory alliance numbers are boxy to ignore. In 2019, he hit .303/.409/.493 with 24 doubles, 16 home runs and 79 RBI in 109 amateur at Triple-A, and he has the athleticism to be a standout apostle at the hot bend with added reps.
17. Brian Anderson, Miami Marlins (2025 Age: 32)
Since the alpha of the 2018 season, Anderson has agilely racked up 8.9 WAR, acceptable for 40th amid all position players during that stretch. He had a career-high 119 OPS with 11 home runs and 38 RBI in 2020, and he additionally provides absolute amount defensively with the versatility to comedy appropriate field. He may never be a star, but he’s a rock-solid MLB player.
16. Nolan Gorman, St. Louis Cardinals (2025 Age: 25)
Thanks to what MLB.com alleged “massive raw power” and a acceptable abundant feel for hitting to be added than aloof an all-or-nothing slugger, Gorman has one of the brightest abhorrent ceilings in the St. Louis acreage system. He addled out 152 times in 125 amateur amid Single-A and High-A, so he still needs to added clarify his approach, but the accoutrement are there for him to be a middle-of-the-order force.
5 of 15
15. Kody Hoese, Los Angeles Dodgers (2025 Age: 27)
The No. 25 all-embracing aces in the 2019 draft, Hoese burst bottom antagonism during his inferior division at Tulane, hitting .391/.486/.779 with 20 doubles, 23 home runs and 61 RBI in 58 games. An arty 6’4″, 200-pound slugger, his mix of able hit apparatus and absorbing raw ability makes him the absolute backup for Justin Turner at third abject and in the boilerplate of the Dodgers lineup.
14. Kris Bryant, Chicago Cubs (2025 Age: 33)
How big of a agency will injuries be for Bryant over the abutting few seasons? He’s aloof a year removed from announcement a 132 OPS with 31 home runs in a 3.7-WAR season, but the acrimonious injuries he has dealt with the able few seasons are a acceptable adumbration he won’t age as alluringly as some others on this list. There is additionally the catechism of area he will be arena aback 2025 rolls around.
13. Nolan Jones, Cleveland (2025 Age: 27)
Arguably the best acclimatized hitter in the accessory leagues, Jones has a .409 on-base allotment and 17.3 percent airing amount in four accessory alliance seasons. It charcoal to be apparent how abundant of his raw ability will construe to in-game production, but he has a adventitious to be a 30-homer guy if aggregate clicks. His abiding beam charcoal a bit of a mystery, but he’s the best anticipation in the Cleveland acreage system.
12. Josh Jung, Texas Rangers (2025 Age: 27)
A three-year amateur at Texas Tech who hit .348/.455/.577 with 33 home runs and 181 RBI in 191 amateur during his time on campus, Jung is accepted to rocket through the Texas acreage system. He’s added hitter than slugger at this point, but his attic ability be a .275 boilerplate and 20 home runs, and there’s affluence of allowance for added ability if he gets bigger at affairs the ball.
11. Anthony Rendon, Los Angeles Angels (2025 Age: 35)
Rendon will still accept two years and $77.1 actor larboard on his arrangement at the alpha of the 2025 season, and he’ll about-face 35 years old a brace of months afterwards Opening Day. One of the best authentic hitters in baseball, he should age bigger than most, alike if he loses a footfall defensively. Afterwards ambidextrous with some abrasion issues aboriginal in his career, he has played in 90 percent of his team’s amateur aback the alpha of 2016.
6 of 15
2025 Age: 25
With a 6’3″, 205-pound anatomy that still has affluence of allowance to ample out, Jordan Groshans has consistently appeared destined to outgrow the ambush position. The attendance of Bo Bichette in Toronto makes a approaching move to third abject alike added likely.
The No. 12 all-embracing aces in the 2018 abstract has played aloof 71 amateur aback alpha his pro career, with a bottom abrasion acid abbreviate what was abstraction up to be a blemish 2019 season.
He hit .337/.427/.482 with eight extra-base hits in 23 amateur at Single-A afore he was sidelined, and with average-or-better accoutrement above the board, it’s accessible to activity him as a approaching star.
There’s still a lot to prove afore he arrives in the majors, but he checks all the boxes to be a two-way standout at the hot bend and a amount allotment in Toronto.
7 of 15
2025 Age: 30
Yoan Moncada looked like a beginning superstar in 2019, hitting .315/.367/.548 with 34 doubles, 25 home runs and 79 RBI in a 4.8-WAR season.
However, his .406 BABIP led all able hitters, and that led to some questions about the sustainability of his blemish performance. A .225/.320/.385 band and 31.2 percent strikeout amount in 2020 seemed to abutment those concerns.
If he’s activity to booty the abutting footfall and consistently put up the aristocratic numbers he did in 2019, he will accept to advance his access at the plate.
I’m a accepter in his accoutrement and abiding upside, but he’s a bit added of a agrarian agenda than some of the players listed advanced of him in these rankings.
8 of 15
2025 Age: 34
In the bristles seasons above-mentioned to the beneath 2020 campaign, Nolan Arenado hit .300/.362/.575 for a 129 OPS while averaging 38 doubles, 40 home runs, 124 RBI and 6.3 WAR.

However, he will about-face 34 years old anon afterwards Opening Day in 2025, and it charcoal to be apparent how abrogation Coors Acreage would appulse his abhorrent production.
Technically, he is active through the 2026 division with his accepted eight-year, $260 actor contract, but amid barter rumors and his opt-out afterward the accessible season, there is a acceptable adventitious he’ll acquisition his way to addition aggregation at some point in the abutting few years.
9 of 15
2025 Age: 28
Alec Bohm went No. 3 all-embracing in the 2018 abstract afterwards a arch inferior division at Wichita State, and he bare aloof 165 amateur in the amateur afore he able the majors.
He hit .305/.378/.518 with 30 doubles, 21 home runs and 80 RBI in 125 amateur in his alone abounding accessory alliance season, aggressive two levels to abutting out the year at Double-A.

10 of 15
2025 Age: 32
Matt Chapman is arguably the best arresting amateur in all of baseball, behindhand of position, and he abstracts to add affluence added Gold Glove Awards in the years to come.
He’s additionally an able slugger aloof a year removed from a 36-homer, 91-RBI division in which he becoming his aboriginal All-Star alternative and able sixth in AL MVP voting.
However, there are some holes in his abhorrent game.
He’s a .255 career hitter and addled out a amazing 54 times in 152 bowl appearances aftermost division afore ability season-ending hip anaplasty in September. The 27-year-old is a absolutely acceptable player, and his mix of aegis and ability is abundant to snag a atom in the top 10, but he has acceptable already able his aiguille and the strikeout numbers in 2020 are alarming.
11 of 15
2025 Age: 32
After a blah aboriginal division of a massive 10-year, $300 actor contract, Manny Machado bounced aback in a big way to accomplishment third in NL MVP voting for a alienated San Diego Padres team.
He hit .304/.370/.580 with 12 doubles, 16 home runs and 47 RBI, acrimonious up the baggy bottomward the amplitude aback adolescent MVP applicant Fernando Tatis Jr. went algid at the plate.
Along the way, he acquaint a college WAR absolute (3.1 to 2.6) in 60 amateur of activity than he did in 156 amateur the antecedent year. A able division defensively at third abject (7 DRS, 5.4 UZR/150) contributed to his amount above his abhorrent production.
Machado has already played nine MLB seasons, but he’s aloof now entering prime age. There’s no acumen to accept he’ll ache any aciculate abatement in assembly amid now and the 2025 season.
12 of 15
2025 Age: 32
Jose Ramirez was the runner-up to Chicago White Sox slugger Jose Abreu in AL MVP voting this able season, announcement a career-high 163 OPS while tallying a antic 34 extra-base hits in 254 bowl appearances.

Francisco Lindor may be the face of the authorization in Cleveland, and accident him is activity to be a above draft aback the time comes. But Ramirez is the team’s best abhorrent player.
He angry 28 years old in September, so he should still be in the prime of his career in 2025. It charcoal to be apparent area he’ll be playing, though, as his arrangement alone runs through 2023 if Cleveland contest both of its options.
13 of 15
2025 Age: 28
It’s fair to admiration if Rafael Devers will still be arena third abject aback the 2025 division rolls around, but for the account of these rankings, we’re bold he stays put.

Given his raw ability abeyant and accessory alliance clue record, it’s not out of the catechism to anticipate a few added of those doubles could about-face into home runs in the years to come.
He struggled abominably out of the gates in 2020 but rebounded to hit .298/.341/.556 with nine doubles, seven home runs and 31 RBI over his final 30 games.
We still haven’t apparent the best he has to action offensively, but his arresting bold (-6 DRS, -10.6 UZR/150 last season) charcoal a catechism mark.
14 of 15
2025 Age: 28
Ke’Bryan Hayes led all rookies with 1.9 WAR aftermost season, almost binding out Luis Robert (1.8), Kyle Lewis (1.7) and Jake Cronenworth (1.6)

Long beheld as a approaching Gold Glove winner, Hayes showcased his aristocratic glovework while hitting .376/.442/.682 with 14 extra-base hits in 95 bowl appearances.
