On Sunday, Baseball America released their Midseason Top 50 prospect list and even though Noah Syndergaard and Brandon Nimmo have been mainstays on any top prospect list, they are now joined by catcher Kevin Plawecki.

Syndergaard, ranked #19 overall, slipped down to the fifth best right-handed starter among the prospects and mostly because of his elbow problems and a banged up shoulder which have slowed his progress.

Plawecki, ranked #40 overall, was not listed among Baseball America’s Top 100 prospect list to start the season, but now he joins his battery mate as the third best catching prospect in the game.

Nimmo, ranked #48 overall, was also not in the initial top 100 list, but he joins the list now due in part to how he has added size and strength, and his excellent idea of the strike zone which remains his foundation skill.
