There's an old saying in scouting circles that basically says scouting the stat line is a good way to get fired. It's true that putting all of your faith in the numbers for a player is not smart, though it's hardly a crime to judge a player by performance.
It also helps, in this case, when we are able to put the numbers in perspective by knowing and understanding the scouting reports. All of the players on this list aren't doing anything shocking, especially for prospect junkies, but it's important to talk about what it all means.
There might be a few players with better stats, though oftentimes they are going to be a 25-year-old in Double-A. That's not the kind of prospect—using that term loosely—worth talking about.
All of these players have the potential to be at least everyday players in the big leagues, some even boasting superstar upside.
Now that we have painted the picture, it's time to look at the top prospect in each system who has gotten off to the most promising start.
