Last year there were some big-name prospects who were not on a major league roster for Opening Day, but by the end of the year, they left their mark on the majors. Players like Stephen Strasbourg, Mike Stanton, Ike Davis,and NL Rookie of the Year Buster Posey.
This year has some top prospects that could make an impact right now on their respective teams but for one reason or another, will be starting the year in the minors. Most of the time the reason for not bringing up a player is because the club can keep them under club control longer before they are eligible for free agency.
These are 10 players who will debut in the majors later than they should.
