Billy Hamilton is a common one to tweet since he is off to a great start and stealing literally a base per game. Other top prospects usually take up the bulk of my tweets but I occasionally throw some of the lesser known prospects out there and here I want to take a deeper at look at some of these prospects.

The Cincinnati Reds had a great system with a lot of top talent that was either Major League ready or very close to it. They just traded away some of their top talent in exchange for a frontline starter and it has put a slight dent in their system.
The system is stocked with infield talent unlike most systems but lacks a lot of high upside guys outside of their top prospect who will likely start the year in the Majors.
Below are my top 16 prospects with 2012 opening day age, position, and comments on each player. Below the top 16 is a small list of additional notable names. Enjoy.
