2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Gonzalez Germen didn't sign out of the Dominican Republic until he was 20, but he has nice component stats (nearly 4:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio in the minors) and he's on the 40-man so youneverknow.
