Baseball America:

These are the best prospects to be moved at the deadline. The seven Top 100 Prospects traded is a larger than normal number, which was helped by the Juan Soto blockbuster deal. Three of the seven Top 100 Prospects traded were included in that one trade.

  1. CJ Abrams, SS (Nationals from Padres)

Top 100 Rank: 11

The Nationals added high-end prospects up and down their system, and Abrams represents their most immediate return. He should step in at shortstop nearly immediately and could provide impact on both sides of the ball.

  1. Robert Hassell, OF (Nationals from Padres)

Top 100 Rank: 25

Hassell is one of the purest hitters in the minor leagues and drew plaudits from multiple scouts as one of the most impressive players they saw at the Futures Game. His mix of hittability and potential power with a chance to play center field makes him a very attractive prospect.

  1. Noelvi Marte, SS (Reds from Mariners)

Top 100 Rank: 47

Marte's stock was down early in the year but he exploded during the summer with High-A Everett. He's unlikely to play shortstop in MLB—he won't need to considering the glut of potential shortstops already in their system—but has the offensive thump to profile wherever he might move.

  1. Edwin Arroyo, SS (Reds from Mariners)

Top 100 Rank: 48

Arroyo is one of the biggest breakout stars of the 2022 season. He was tearing up the Low-A California League at the time of the trade. His athleticism gives him a chance to be a standout defender up the middle and his hand-eye coordination and burgeoning power should give him a shot to be equally impactful in the batter's box.

  1. James Wood, OF (Nationals from Padres)

Top 100 Rank: 62

Wood is a massive human with long levers and huge power. He's also got the body control to manipulate the barrel to plenty of different parts of the strike zone, leading to long home runs to all sectors of pretty much any park this side of Yellowstone. He has a chance to stick in center field, too, giving him tremendous upside.

  1. Logan O'Hoppe, C (Angels from Phillies)

Top 100 Rank: 89

O'Hoppe was the Phillies' top positional prospect, but he was blocked in the big leagues by J.T. Realmuto. He's a gifted hitter and a rarity among Philadelphia prospects for his ability to hit better away from the offensive paradise that is Double-A Reading. He works well with pitchers and often throws from his knees to mitigate the difficulties caused by being a larger-framed backstop.

  1. Spencer Steer, 3B/2B (Reds from Twins)

Top 100 Rank: 97

Steer has proven himself at the upper levels of the minors in each of the last two seasons, showing a blend of hittability and power that should give him a shot at a long big league career. He might not stick at shortstop, but he can move around the infield with ease.
