Five Mariners prospects ranked in MLB.com's top-100
Using a formula that assigns 100 points for the No. 1 prospect (Texas shortstop Jurickson Profar), 99 for the No. 2 prospect, and so on, Seattle had the most "prospect points" with 351.
I asked Franklin at last weekend's Fan Fest if he thinks about the young group of players he is a part of, and he said, "I think about that all the time, actually. Even last year with the Jackson team it was like, 'Wow, we've got a good group of guys.' And we still have a good group coming up. There are prospects everywhere, and the big league team is starting to come around. So I'm really looking forward to it."
