After releasing his top-100 prospects last week, Keith Law is back this week with his individual team lists.

Now, we know who fills out the rest of the list.

  15. Kyri Washington
  16. Danny Mars
  17. Ben Taylor
  18. Stephen Nogosek

There are some real surprises here, which makes sense given the nature of Boston’s farm system. They have a clear top tier, but the rest is all mashed up and your order depends entirely on personal preference. The earliest surprise to me was seeing Lankins ranked so highly. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I was a bit surprised to see Johnson so low on the list.

As for his explanations, well, you’ll have to go to the link to find out what Law thinks of each of these players, and a few others not included here. It is behind the paywall, so please respect that and not post screenshots and quotes in the comments.
