History of available Prospect information for Mark Kotsay. Prospect rankings are mostly fluid throughout the season. As players get promoted to the Major Leagues and prospects performance fluctuates, so do the rankings. TBC has elected to only capture the pre-season ranking.

Baseball America rankings are available by team since 1983 and the top 100 since 1990. Other services were added more recently.
