Ranking the Angels' Top 10 Prospects After the 2013 Minor League Season
Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports
So, it's called the farm system...

The feel-good story of the year for the Los Angeles Angels is surprisingly out of MLB's league.

And that's no minor matter, my friends.

In what can only be labeled as a bizarre continuation to the 2013 escapades of the Angels, the dynamic job by the organization's minor league system this season is overwhelmingly intriguing—with the Triple-A Salt Lake Bees, the Double-A Arkansas Travelers and the Single-A (Advanced) Inland Empire 66ers all making their championship series, respectively.

Sure, I realize that a title in the minor leagues doesn't always equate to a successful crop of major league players. But so what? With a system that has been pegged as the worst in the minor leagues, the Angels should take pride in the accomplishment.

Who knows if it will ultimately lead to a less headache-filled future for the Halos; I certainly don't.

However, I do know this:

  • Some of these players I have been following this season aren't as yawn-filled as originally labeled.
  • The top 10 Angels' prospects, though not the most stable crop, all have possible upside that will work in the MLB.
  • While players like Travis Witherspoon, Daniel Tillman and Luis Jimenez bounced out of the top 10, names like Stamets, Morin and Yarbrough replaced them with impressive ability that should progress.

"There are three things you can do in a baseball game. You can win, or you can lose, or it can rain."

  • I'm no weatherman, but the Angels farm system seems to be producing more than a few wins.

With that in mind, here is my ranking of their top 10 minor leaguers this year.
