Astros Breaking down the Astros' 2015 Top 30 Prospects

By Teddy Cahill / MLB.com | 9:45 AM ET

As it was a year ago, the Astros' Top Prospects list is led by shortstop Carlos Correa and right-hander Mark Appel. The landscape behind the two former No. 1 overall picks, however, has changed.

Outfielder George Springer and first baseman Jon Singleton have graduated to the Major Leagues. The farm system has also been hit by trades, as general manager Jeff Luhnow made offseason deals to strengthen the Major League roster. But all that movement has created room in the rankings for several new players, including outfielder Brett Phillips, the Astros' Minor League Player of the Year.

Phillips wasn't the system's only breakout player last year. Second baseman Tony Kemp and right-hander Joe Musgrove also join the top 30 after not being ranked a year ago.

All told, Houston's system is ranked No. 8 in MLBPipeline.com's list of baseball's top 10 farm systems.



Biggest jump: Phillips, OF (2014: Unranked | 2015: 7)
Biggest fall: Asher Wojciechowski, RHP (2014: 14 | 2015: 23)
