** = may lose eligibilty soon

-I'd say the Top farm systems are Cubs, Astros, Twins , Pirates, Red Sox.
the 5th one is up for debate. ? maybe Rockies, Blue Jays, Mets get sneaky..
-The Cardinals graduated everybody (wong, adams, Rosenthal, wacha, c-mart)
Tavares soon too....all they left with is Piscotty , Gonzalez and their pitcher this yr.
- Tigers had 1 mention.
- Nick Burdi's pro debut went like this first 4 batters he faced :
walked all four of them on :99, 98, 97, 97, 96, 98, 99, 98, 98, 96, 98, 88 SL, 97, 98, 97, 97, 97, 89 SL, 96, 96, 97
