RAB fave Keith Law posted his list of the top 100 prospects for the upcoming draft over at ESPN yesterday, but you might have missed it because it was immediately buried behind a bunch of other stuff. Unfortunately, it’s subscriber only. Now that Dustin Ackley has shown he can handle the outfield post-Tommy John surgery, he’s climbed up draft boards and checks in at number two on KLaw’s list, behind only Stephen Strasburg. This year’s crop is very pitching heavy, and only four high school shortstops (a precious demographic) made the top 100. From the looks of it, it seems like Jiovanni Mier and Matt Davidson will be gone before the Yanks pick at number 29.
