Where, and how, the Los Angeles Angels' top 15 prospects finished their respective seasons is no back page matter.
Three of the teams—the High-A Inland Empire 66ers, the Double-A Arkansas Travelers and the Triple-A Salt Lake Bees—made it to their Championship Series, with the 66ers winning the California League Title.
Along with the farm system's overall success, several of the top prospects progressed in their individual development, with a few lesser-known players outperforming the expectations and cracking into into the top echelon of Angels to watch.
That's great and unexpected news. Front page type stuff!
With the offseason in the beginning stages for the Angels, the restructuring towards 2014 is in full swing—regardless of if the news is being made public or not—and the minor league system is undoubtedly part of the scenario.
Because of the cost restrictions due to past offseason spending (see payer of Vernon Wells 2014 contract), the cost-controlled ideals we have heard recently form the Angels' decision-makers will certainly have to involve minor league players.
Whether that happens directly from the current list of top 15 prospects remains to be seen, but each player on that chart deserves one, final look before the offseason catapults into frenzy mode.
