Each MLB Team's Prospect Most Likely to Become a Franchise Player

One can very easily look at one of the various prospect rankings and think it is easy to spot a future franchise player. Just look at the top-rated prospect and you have the cornerstone of a franchise, right?

Well, not always. A franchise player has qualities beyond a great bat or a terrific arm. He has charisma, work ethic and leadership ability. He has the ability to carry a team by himself. He will, in time, become the face of the franchise.

So today, I will look at each team and the player that is most likely to become that guy. And as an added bonus, I'll throw in a comparable MLB player as a basis of comparison.

Please enjoy a look at your future franchise players.

Note: I will include some players who have had limited MLB time (eg. Julio Teheran, Mike Moustakas) but not someone like Stephen Strasburg who has spent a significant time in the majors.
