Bryce Harper is only 19 years old, but many seem ready to send him right to Cooperstown. He is currently rated by Baseball America as the No. 1 overall prospect in the minor leagues. He will be making his major league debut very soon, probably before this year's All-Star break.
But as Harper has quickly become one of the most hyped prospects in recent baseball history, he has cast a long shadow on the rest of the Washington Nationals farm system. Now, it is time to bring the best of the rest into the light of exposure. This group helped the Nationals earn the 12th spot in Baseball America's 2012 organization talent rankings. And just like Bryce Harper, these seven will soon be playing major league baseball for the Washington Nationals.
