Call it a new tradition for the site. Below, I’ve listed the 2019 MiLB Opening Day placement for over 350 notable prospects. If you’re anything like me, you get tired of having to constantly Twitter/Google search your favorite prospects to see if there’s an update on their status to begin the season. Instead, this article will include most of the prospects you’re interested in as the 2019 MiLB season begins. All in one place, for your convenience.

Curious about the placement of a prospect who’s not included in this list? Make sure you tweet us at @Prospects365. We’ll do everything in our power to help you out, then we’ll add that prospect to the list (and a hat tip to Dynasty Guru’s Jesse Roche, who’s been steadfastly tweeting out placements since they began to trickle out).

If a prospect has TBD next to their name, either their placement has not yet been announced or (it’s more likely) they will not begin the season in a full season league. The (IL) designation, as you’ll quickly figure out, means a prospect will begin the MiLB season on the injured list.

If you don’t recognize a prospect and want to know if they made my top-200 prospect list, simply click here. My 2019 prospect obsession list can be found here and here, and my prospect bold predictions are here.

Keep that CTRL+F combination at your fingertips and enjoy!
