2024 MLB draft rankings 2.0: Top prospects, mini-mock draft

Georgia's Charlie Condon has slugged his way up MLB draft boards this spring. Where does he land on Kiley McDaniel's latest 2024 draft rankings? David J. Griffin/Icon Sportswire

Entering the season, the 2024 MLB draft class was seen as a clear down group, especially on the heels of a historic 2023 crop. Throughout the spring, the 2024 class has improved and now the top tier of 10 players would all slot right onto an updated top 100 MLB prospects list -- that figure was just four to start the spring.

It's a much more enjoyable backdrop from which to unveil my updated top 150-plus draft prospects and a mini-mock draft of the top 13 picks.

The big improvement comes from a big class of potential first-round college position players and a deep class of seven-figure quality high school pitchers.

It's not all sunshine and roses, though. The high school position players fall off dramatically after the top two. There were 14 high school position players in the top 32 picks last year and we could see as few as three being picked in that range this year. The college pitching group is limited after the top three and despite its depth, the prep pitching class is light on high-end, top-of-the-first-round prospects with only one high school pitcher having a real chance to go in the top 15 picks.

This is a ranking mostly to reflect an industry consensus at this point, with a little bit of my opinion thrown in. I cut it off at 154 because that's where the names all started to look the same to me.

I include FV grades/tiers and an MLB top-100 ranking so you can see where these players would slot on updated versions of your team's top prospect lists.

Let's start by looking at how the top of the first round could shake out come July, before moving into my ranking of the top 150-plus players.
