The future is bright for Major League Baseball.

This season has seen an impressive influx of young talent in the majors, led by Julio Rodríguez, Adley Rutschman, Spencer Strider, Michael Harris II, Jeremy Peña, Bobby Witt Jr. and George Kirby, who were all top prospects when the season began.

Even with that impressive crop of rookie talent, the minor league pipeline still promises to deliver more high-ceiling young talent in the coming years.

Ahead we've ranked the top 25 prospects who are 20 or younger, based on current production, future upside and long-term expectations.

Nos. 25-21

25. SS Adael Amador, Colorado Rockies (Age: 19)

Signed for $1.5 million as one of the top players on the 2019 international free-agent market, Amador is hitting .300/.421/.461 with 22 doubles, 14 home runs and 25 steals in 492 plate appearances at Single-A. The most impressive stat is his 78 walks against just 59 strikeouts, a level of discipline that belies his age.


24. OF Elijah Green, Washington Nationals (Age: 18)

With a 60-power, 70-speed profile, Green has some of the loudest raw tools of any prospect, and he was a candidate to go No. 1 overall in the 2022 draft before some swing-and-miss concerns caused him to slip to the Nats with the fifth pick. He has a .302/.404/.535 line in his first 12 rookie ball games, but he has also struck out 21 times at a 40.4 percent clip.
