Baseball America named outfielder Bryce Harper the top prospect in baseball and included three other Nationals on their annual list of the game's top 100 prospects. The magazine, a leading authority on the minor leagues, also rated catcher Derek Norris 72nd, second baseman Danny Espinosa 66th and catcher Wilson Ramos 96th. The Nationals last year placed three players on Baseball America's top 100. Stephen Strasburg ranked second, Norris 38th and Drew Storen 92nd. Ramos, then with the Minnesota Twins, ranked 58th last year. The Royals led all teams with nine prospects on the list. Only three other teams - the Rays, Braves and Yankees - had more than four prospects make the top 100. The Blue Jays, Phillies, Reds, Indians and Twins also had four players on the list.
