So far during the 2020 Major League Baseball season, 26 of my top 100 prospects have made their big league debuts, seven more have played this year but debuted in 2019, and four more debuted last year and haven't played this season because of injury. One more -- New York Yankees RHP Clarke Schmidt -- must have vanished because there's no explanation for why he isn't in the big leagues. Expanded rosters, the lack of a minor league season and diminished transactions made for more chances for young players to play, helping explain why more than a third of this winter's top 100 already have big league time under their belts. Here's a quick journey through those 26 players making their MLB debuts in 2020, what they've done, and what you can expect going forward.
Note: Number listed is player's ranking on McDaniel's preseason top 100 list.
