Knocking on the door:
Tweet from @joseph_taylor25: @jimcallisMLB do you think eloy Jimenez can force his way up the majors this year? And what do you think his ceiling is?
Tweet from @jimcallisMLB: Jimenez is talented but won't crack loaded @Cubs lineup this year. Could see .280/30 HR as ceiling. #Top100Prospects https://t.co/FxY0vJUAph
Tweet from @texanfan3285: @JonathanMayo how far away is Derek Fisher from the major leagues? #Top100Prospects
Tweet from @JonathanMayo: Give him a year. #Top100Prospects https://t.co/ka14hLxEaL
Tweet from @ProudOFyouBRO: @JonathanMayo Matt Chapman make it to Oakland this year? #Top100Prospects

Floor/ceiling questions:

Just missed:
Tweet from @rberdelle: @GoldenSombrero #Top100Prospects Was Zack Burdi considered at the bottom of the top 100? I know he will debut before many of these prospects
Tweet from @GoldenSombrero: No relievers on our list. But he���d likely be Nos. 1 or 2 on anyone���s list of top RP prospects. #Top100Prospects https://t.co/DGNw5mt7Q5
Tweet from @MJ99_1: @jimcallisMLB who is a Cub outside of the top 100 but you see making the list in the update or 2018 list? #Top100Prospects
Tweet from @jimcallisMLB: RHPs Oscar de la Cruz or Jose Albertos, provided they stay healthy. @Cubs #Top100Prospects https://t.co/LSzPJq4gyn
Tweet from @TylerSchmidt28: @jimcallisMLB What are your thoughts on Justin Dunn? Future #Top100Prospects guy? Looked great in limited action in the NYPL
Tweet from @JonathanMayo: Yes, I could see him climbing onto the list with a strong 1st full season. A little wary of RPs-turned-SPs in college. #Top100Prospects https://t.co/sSuLsd2tjE
Tweet from @AstrosFuture: @jimcallisMLB @MLBPipeline @JonathanMayo @GoldenSombrero any other Astros prospects considered for #Top100Prospects?
Tweet from @GoldenSombrero: Franklin Perez got some love. #Top100Prospects https://t.co/t3ikfNfpov
Tweet from @chris_d_davies: @jimcallisMLB @JonathanMayo How far is Greg Allen from the #Top100Prospects? @Indians
Tweet from @GoldenSombrero: Allen wasn���t in the mix, but I can tell you that we���re all fans. He���s a dude. #Indians #Top100Prospects https://t.co/R5XwhkV0U3
