Oakland A's 2010 Top-50 Prospects REVISED

Where did Jemile Weeks land?

For the past six weeks, subscribers have had access to our list of the Oakland A's top-50 prospects heading into the 2010 season. Now that all of the reports on those players have been published, we are releasing the list to all readers, with a few revisions to reflect the two trades the A's made in December. Click inside to find out who made the A's top-50 prospect list...

On November 19, we revealed our 2010 top-50 prospect list for the Oakland A's to our subscribers. Over the past six weeks, we have published detailed reports on each of those 50 players. An archive of all of these reports can be found here. If you aren't already a subscriber and want access to these reports, please go to the subscription page to sign up today. Those signing up for a full-year subscription will be eligible to receive the 2010 FoxSports/Scout.com Fantasy and Prospect Guide.

Since the release of our original list, the A's have traded three of the top-50 prospects and acquired one prospect who moved right onto the list. Below, we unveil our newly revised top-50 prospect list that takes into account this player movement. We have also included the original list that subscribers saw on November 19 for comparison.

Next week, we will highlight some of the players who just missed making this list, as well as the players who joined the list after the trades were made.
