Of all the Padres' high-ceiling prospects, Thompson might have the best chance to do big things in 2017, Keith Law writes. The right-hander has the stuff and size for mid-rotation upside or better. Top sleeper prospects (Insider)

The state of baseball's worst teams

From the usual suspects to a recent world champion, the 2017 season likely isn't about contention for these struggling squads. Which are on their way to brighter days?

Jim Bowden ESPN Baseball Analyst 

Jason Hammel is still left on the free agent market despite being 1 of 8 Starters who has won more than 10 games with a sub 4 ERA for 3 consecutive seasons. 1 of only 11 to have a sub .250 OBA for 3 consecutive seasons. His ability to take the ball 30 times a season and his evolution as seen through the use of his slider and 2 seamer make him a much improved pitcher. He's a winner, a consistent winner as shown by his 25-17 record the last two years with a 3.78 ERA over 61 starts. Teams that need him include: Royals, Orioles, Padres, Pirates, Marlins, Rockies and Twins.

There's upside across the board here, from the physical tools to the makeup to the incredible feel for the game in a kid who would be a high school senior right now if he were U.S.-born, Keith Law writes. 2017 prospect rankings: 60-41 (Insider)

Adrian Morejon among Law's top prospects

The scouting reports on the 17-year-old Cuban lefty are so glowing that he could be the next Anderson Espinoza, which would shoot him up Keith Law's list next January, if he lives up to them. Where does Morejon rank this year? 2017 prospect rankings: 80-61 (Insider)
