Minor-League Rosters

Here are the four full-season rosters as they stand today. There are several prospects that haven't yet joined the roster (most notably Clint Frazier), so don't expect these to represent the full lineup of prospects until at least couple weeks into the season.

On these rosters there are highlights:

Prospects That Matter: Yellow

These players were selected based on a rating system that took into account their relative age, level, and performance, which was also adjusted by position and role (starter/reliever). You can read much about this here, here, and here.

Prospects of Interest: Orange

These are players who didn't meet PTM for one reason or another but in my (subjective) mind worthy of interest to the casual fan. For instance, players who didn't meet Plate Appearance of Innings thresholds weren't included in the PTM ratings, and PTM didn't count short-season results. So players like Kyle Crockett (not enough innings), Clint Frazier (short-season) and Francisco Mejia (short-season), while they aren't PTMs, are very much worth following.

Stats

I've added stats through the first week of play. Obviously the sample is quite small, so take them with a gigantic grain of salt.
