Top MLB Players Under 25

Keith Law posted his list of the top 25 players in MLB under the age of 25. His rule is that they can't turn 25 at any point in this season. The Red Sox had two make the list in Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts

Betts is listed at #5 while Bogaerts is listed at #8. Two top ten guys who are both position players at key spots like CF and SS is pretty impressive and bodes well for the future.

There was not one New York Yankee to make the list however the Braves seem poised to go back to the formula that worked in the 1990s. They have three guys on the list, all pitchers. Shelby Miller at #21, Julio Teheran at #22 and Alex Wood at #23. The dismantling of the Braves this past offseason was disheartening especially living here in Braves Country, but the future does appear to be bright.

The top 4 on the list are Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Manny Machado and Yasiel Puig.
