With a position player heavy top of the rankings it was only a matter of time before some arms started to infiltrate the top ten.

Last update, RHP Jack Washburn (Webster) cracked it at No. 9 and moved up three spots to No. 6 as he continues to show steady improvements with a high ceiling. Washburn worked at 85-86 mph, touching 87 at the Madison Preseason ID last month.

LHP Connor Prielipp (Tomah) joined Washburn as the only two arms in the top ten. At No. 7, the 6-foot, 155-pound Prielipp showed us an easy fastball that sits 85-86 mph with a hard secondary stuff including an 80-82 mph curveball and a 79-80 mph changeup. Prielipp is the biggest revelation to the top ten jumping from No. 23 to No. 7.
