On the cusp: OF Hunter Bishop, RHP Logan Webb, OF Alexander Canario
Confidence Level: 75%

Hunter Bishop is the only player from this trio who is currently ranked by any major outlet at the moment (No. 71 by MLB Pipeline and No. 97 by BA).

However, if outlets had top-200 lists, he would likely be a consensus entrant on that list.

The San Francisco Giants 2019 first-round selection, Bishop is a  toolsy collegiate center fielder who will likely start 2020 with the High-A San Jose Giants. Given his draft pedigree, Bishop will be a top-100 prospect if he can just maintain his current prospect standing.

Logan Webb was on the cusp of being a top-100 prospect to start the season before a controversial PED suspension cost him 80 games. He’s back in action now and is a strong candidate to pitch in the Arizona Fall League to help make up for lost time. A strong AFL showing would guarantee him a spot on the major top-100 lists.

Alexander Canario is a right-handed version of Bishop. In fact, FanGraphs Prospects gives nearly identical grades for their ceilings. Canario is nearly two years younger than Bishop and currently performing well at the same level. However, he’s also a more raw prospect. Controlling strikeouts will be key for Canario as he moves up the ranks. If he does, his tools will make him a top-100 prospect before long.
