Comparing minor leaguers to Major Leaguers isn't exactly a science. That's why in a world of endless technologies, we still end up with big-league busts like Billy Rowell, Matt Bush and my personal favorite, Bryan Bullington.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where we constantly compare everything, so it doesn't appear that baseball's fascination with finding the next A-Rod (Manny Machado), Michael Bourn (Billy Hamilton) or Adrian Gonzalez (Anthony Rizzo) is going to die down anytime soon.
Odds are that the majority of the players on this list of top prospects are going to become successful big-leaguers. Some might blossom into everyday players while others might find their niche as fourth outfielders, set-up men or clutch pinch-hitters.
Either way, there's a decent big-league comparison for each of them. Here they are, the pride and joy of minor league baseball, compared to the best and brightest of the Major Leagues.
