With good seasons next year, Webb, Vader, Esquivel, Narron, Ohlman, and Chalas could all vault into the top 20.

I'm going to put Webb and Ohlman at the top of this list. Both of them took large strides forward in 2012. Webb needs to prove himself at a higher level and continue to be an OBP machine. Ohlman needs to continue to see the defense move forward while building on the success he is seeing in the ABL.

Not sure where this one will fall on the current list, but the other player to watch this season is Adrian Marin. Only saw him a handful of times last season, but liked everything I saw. quick, great hands, above average range, solid at the plate.

Agreed. I am a big Adrian Marin fan. He's just a smart, well-rounded baseball player.

SS with good glove and bat tools jump up prospect ranking charts VERY quickly. It will be interesting to see which level he's succeeding at when Hardy's contract expires at the end of the 2014 season.
