I am kicking off my top prospects lists with one of the deepest systems in all of baseball, the Arizona Diamondbacks. They have more pitching depth than any system in the game I have seven of their top eight prospects as pitchers.
Why top 16? Well, because I can choose which ever number I want and it is one of my favorite numbers thanks to my favorite athlete of all-time: Joe Montana. And the number is arbitrary enough to get people asking “why 16 prospects?” Other than those, there is no real reason as to why I chose 16.
Below are my top 16 prospects with 2012 opening day age and position and comments on each player. Below the top 16 is a small list of notable names. Enjoy.
