Comparing Each MLB Team's Top 2012 Call-Up to a League Star

I still can't quite grasp that we've seen almost every preseason top-10 prospect reach the major leagues this season. Players like Bryce Harper and Mike Trout have already proven to be generational talents, while Manny Machado, Trevor Bauer, Jurickson Profar and Shelby Miller are seemingly on their way.

Although there may be a few more notable prospects recalled in the coming weeks, such as Trevor Bauer and Wil Myers (maybe), the main prospect influx appears to be over. So, it's time to look at each team's top call-up from the 2012 season, complete with big league comparisons.

As those who've read my work before may know, I'm not a fan of comparing inexperienced prospects to major leaguers. However, there's no denying the fact that they're entertaining. Therefore, I examined each player's statistics, age, experience, tools and overall ceiling in order to provide accurate comparisons.

Even though some of the players on this list appeared in the major leagues in 2011, they all began the 2012 season in the minor leagues with their rookie status intact.
