When I did my Top 100 Prospects series last week, I got a few requests to rank the minor league systems of the 30 major league teams.
So here we are.
As with the Top 100 Prospects, players that debuted in the majors before July 15, 2009 do not count toward the rankings.
Another thing I noticed in the Top 100 series was that a few of the comments said I weighed current stats over tools. I admit that I do that to an extent, but not in some sort of a blanket sense.
To circumvent any statistical bias I may have, what I'll do in each system is list some good statistical prospects and some prospects who have more projection but less current performance.
I will also have a list of players who do both.
Following the lists (which aren't in any particular order), I'll give a brief rundown of why the team is ranked where it is, and any other brief thoughts I have about their system.
Feel free to ask me about any of the players listed. I'll be happy to provide more information.
