Astros put seven on Top 100 list

The Astros put seven prospects on's Top 100 list, while getting the highest number of "Prospect Points" in baseball, as was revealed last night. Those prospects?

Carlos Correa: #8
Mark Appel: #17
George Springer: #21
Jon Singleton: #50
Lance McCullers: #52
Mike Foltynewicz: #54
Delino DeShields: #66

It's worth noting that Jim Callis said last night that Carlos Rodon would automatically get slotted in the Top 10.

Also notable:
The Angels are the only team not to have a single prospect in the Top 100.

On the Best Tools list, the Astros have three prospects in the Honorable Mention category:
Delino DeShields: Fastest Runner
Mike Foltynewicz: Best Fastball
Carlos Correa: Strongest Arm
