The first half of the 2013 season has officially ended at all levels, and your Los Angeles Dodgers climbed all the way out of the depths of NL West purgatory to pull within 2.5 games of the division-leading Arizona Diamondbacks.
A large part of that resurgence can be traced back to Yasiel Puig, who graced the No. 1 spot on this ranking for quite a while before being made a permanent fixture of the big league outfield. And it's been a very good first half for a few of the other top prospects.
This list has morphed every week and given us a good look at the brightest spots of the farm system. With the Dodgers back in contention, some of those pieces could be moved before the end of the month, but that remains to be seen.
Before we go any further, let me say congratulations to Double-A outfield stud Joc Pederson on his 1-1 (with a walk) performance for the U.S. team in the Futures Game on Sunday. You'll see that name on this ranking, as well as a few other familiar faces.
Let's see how everyone stacks up, as compared to last week.
