Players to watch in the Minors

Name some of the Minor Leaguers we should be looking out for to eventually make it to the majors.

I'll start the list off with a couple, Mason Williams, Scooter Gennett and Johnny Hellweg.

Lewis Brinson

In the stacked Texas Rangers farm system, but he is the best of the bunch in my opinion. He's in the South Atlantic League right now, so he is still a few years away but I like him as much as I liked Matt Kemp while he was a minor leaguer.

Jesse Biddle

A big left-handed pitcher in the Phillies organization. He's their best pitching prospect and he's in AA right now. I expect him to break camp with Philadelphia next Spring Training.

Ten of my favorite position players that didn't make BA's top 100:

Carlos Tocci
Rougned Odor
Jake Hager
Jorge Bonifacio
Domingo Santana
Wilmer Flores
Ronny Rodriguez
Ronald Torreyes
Hanser Alberto
Joc Pederson

Edit- Add three 3B in Aderlin Rodriguez, Maikel Franco, and Giovanny Urshela to the list.

Rafael Montero, although he may be in his 30's. :lol:

Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton. Two guys for the Twins who have a legitimate shot to be ranked as the first and second best minor league players in all of baseball, next year.
