With the 2014 MLB first-year player draft behind us, it is as good a time as any to take a look around the game and identify each team's best homegrown player.

That is the point of the draft, after all. The goal is to select and develop as many players as possible that a team can not only call its own, but that can be among the best in the game.  

So, which players represent the best homegrown talent on each 25-man roster?

The only caveat here is that to be considered for inclusion, a player must have played at least one full season in the minor leagues for his respective team. That means that a guy like Yoenis Cespedes would not be considered homegrown, but Yasiel Puig would. Getting drafted or being acquired via amateur free agency makes no difference; it is solely whether or not a player came up through the farm system.
