Page Notes  
These are rankings compiled pre-season by Baseball America in 1985. The rankings are by experts but they are, in effect, judgement calls and predictions. There are 2 grids. Top prospect ranked per team and the overall top x for this season as compiled prior to the selected season. Note that prospect lists by providers are updated every perpetually throughout the season as players get promoted but we have chosen for a pre-season static view for simplicity purposes.
