Podcast: Who will be next season's top rookies?

November 23rd, 2022

On the latest edition of the Pipeline Podcast, Jim Callis, Jonathan Mayo and Jason Ratliff begin looking ahead to 2023 and trying to project next season's top rookies. Jim and Jonathan draft five prospects each based on where they think they'll finish in Rookie of the Year balloting, and they have Orioles infielder Gunnar Henderson and D-backs outfielder Corbin Carroll as the favorites in each league.

Next up is a discussion of the decisions teams had to make finalizing their 40-man rosters, including surprises added or left off. They conclude by double-dipping into the listener mailbag, as they ponder where the Padres' Jackson Merrill ranks among shortstop prospects after an impressive Arizona Fall League, then identify their favorite prospects who aren't highly ranked.
