The minor league season is in full swing and nearly every player that signed has made his professional debut. Some have gotten off to very hot starts while some are still adjusting to professional pitching. I have split this post up in to two parts. In the first part I will take a look at picks 1-15 and in the second part I will take a look at the rest of the first round. I present to you part 1 and look for part 2 in the coming days. Enjoy.

The Kansas City Royals saw top prospects Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Danny Duffy, Salvador Perez, and Johnny Giavotella all graduate out of prospect status and into Big Leaguers in 2011.
To most teams, that would have been a huge blow to their farm system. But it wasn’t to the Royals. Sure, it took a hit on a top 3 farm system but the team has had success with international signings and recent drafts that have kept their system from falling when it graduates that many solid prospects.
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.
