MLB Spring Training 2011: The 10 Most Exciting Prospects in the NL East's Camps

The NL East teams include the Atlanta Braves, Florida Marlins, New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies, and the Washington Nationals. 

All of these teams have had their fair share of prospects come through the systems, become big time prospects, and then become stars at the major league level. The division was led in 2010 by guys like Jason Heyward, Stephen Strasburg, and Mike Stanton.

This year's group has a little less fire power in it, but that doesn't mean that there isn't any talent on it's way.

ESPN's Keith Law ranked the entire Major League farm systems. He ranked the Atlanta Braves as the third best organization, the Phillies fifth, the Nationals 19th, the Mets 26th, and the depleted Marlins 29th.

It looks very top heavy, because it is. The Braves and Phillies both boast five players in Law's Top 100 prospects for 2011.

We will not take a closer look at the top 10 guys that will be in his major league clubs camps this spring. So this means that he must be in the camp to be in this list, which hurts some players like Wilmer Flores, Matt Harvey, Johnathan Singleton, and Jason Cosart.

I also decided to show that I would represent each organization by making sure at least one of their prospects make the list, even though he may not necessarily deserve to be ahead of some others.

I checked every team's active roster and non-roster invitees so I could see who was expected to be there. If something id wrong, feel free to let me know.
