Astros land five on BA Midseason list

Baseball America posted their Top 50 Midseason Prospect List today. The Astros have 10% of the prospects on the list, with five. Click the link for blurbs on the players, but here they are:

9) Carlos Correa
20) George Springer
22) Jon Singleton
31) Mike Foltynewicz
46) Lance McCullers

Players drafted last month are not included, so you could imagine Mark Appel would also be on the list (as would anybody else taken in the top 10, probably). Notably, the Twins have two of the top three prospects on the list with Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano. How do the rest of our AL West friends fare?

Mariners: 2
Rangers: 1
A's: 1
Angels: 0

I don't think all top 10 picks are among the top 50 prospects. Maybe Apple, Gray, Bryant, and Moran. If I remember right last year only Buxton, Correa, Zunino and Gausman were making those lists with Courtney Hawkins showing up on some of the later ones.
