Ten NL Prospects Who Could Start the Season in the major leagues.

Yesterday, I listed ten American League prospects that will be competing for a big league job in Spring Training and have a legitimate chance to start the season in the majors. Here's a look at ten National League prospects.

Notes from around the Caribbean Winter Leagues

The chances that the Atlanta Braves can acquire a starting left fielder may have taken a hit on Tuesday when Shane Victorino was signed to a three-year, $39M contract by the Red Sox, a pricey deal for a 32 year-old outfielder who only had a .704 OPS in 2012. Not only is there one less free agent outfielder available, but the price might not be right for the Braves to land any of them if Victorino can get that kind of deal. They could just allow Martin Prado to remain in left field, instead of moving to third base, and Juan Francisco would be the beneficiary of regular playing time at the hot corner. The 25 year-old celebrated by hitting two homers on Tuesday with 6 RBI's as the Tigers del Licey, led by five no-hit innings from Francisco's Braves teammate Julio Teheran, shut out the Gigantes del Cibao in Dominican Winter League action.

Notes from around the Caribbean Winter Leagues.

The ultimate showdown of premier outfield prospects in the Dominican Winter League happened on Wednesday night when Starling Marte's Leones del Escogido faced off against Oscar Taveras' Aguilas Cibaenas. Of course, neither player disappointed. The 24 year-old Marte had three hits, including a double and a three-run triple while the 20 year-old Taveras had a double, two singles, and a walk. What? You want to know who won the game? It doesn't really matter. Every fan who was in the stands wins because they got to see Marte and Taveras before they were stars on the same field as former big league greats Manny Ramirez and Miguel Tejeda. Incidentally, the two veterans who have 18 All-Star selections between them, each had a pair of hits.

25-man roster of top prospects playing in the Dominican Winter League

With only three makeup games going on in the Dominican Winter League and all of the other leagues off on Monday, I have no player updates for you today. Instead, I put together a 25-man roster of DWL prospects because I really enjoy organizing things into 25-man rosters whenever possible.

Much-hyped Julio Teheran has had some MLB failure. So what?

The Backstory
Viewed by many in the industry as the best pitcher available in the 2007 international market, Colombia native Julio Teheran signed with the Braves for an $850K bonus, and those distinctions placed expectations on the young arm before his first professional pitch. The hype exploded after the 16-year-old flashed low-to-mid 90s heat, two plus potential secondary offerings, and impressive overall feel for the mound during the instructional league campaign, with scouts leaving his appearances with superlatives bulging from their khakis. He looked too good to be true.

Before Teheran could build on his instructional league coming out party, shoulder tendinitis put the brakes on his 2008 season, and the Braves protected their investment by limiting the 17-year-old to only six short-season starts. Despite the shoulder concerns, the total package was still turning heads, as the command profile looked above-average, the fastball was working in the low-90s with relative ease, the curve was showing a tight rotation and depth, and the changeup was emerging as his best offering, a pitch with excellent deception out of the hand and late action to the arm side.

We debut a new staff column that collects what talent evaluators in the industry are saying with a look at some scouting scuttlebutt about young pitchers with bright futures.

Many of our authors make a habit of speaking to scouts and other talent evaluators in order to bring you the best baseball information available. Not all of the tidbits gleaned from those conversations make it into our articles, but we don't want them to go to waste. Instead, we'll be collecting them in a regular feature called "What Scouts Are Saying," which will be open to participation from the entire BP staff and include quotes about minor leaguers and major leaguers alike. Welcome to the first edition.

Though we're just two weeks into the season, scouts have gotten to see quite a few performances from notable prospects (and one notable player in a big-league bullpen). Here's what they're saying:

Painting the Black: Braves Still Building the Wight Way

R.J. Anderson

Legendary scout Bill Wight's legacy lives on in Atlanta's pitching-rich rotation, but should the Braves trade from strength to address a weakness?

The Braves have too many young starters—a statement as timeless as any in baseball, right up there with "the Pirates hope to have a winning season” or “the Yankees lead the league in payroll.” Some things in baseball are destined to stay the same. Atlanta’s evergreen supply of young arms seems to be one of them.

Often, when a person joins a team just as it begins to do something well, he or she is identified as the catalyst for that change. That John Schuerholz has become the iconic figure behind the Braves’ pitching dominance is no surprise. Blossoming starting pitchers shaped Schuerholz’s legacy as much as, or perhaps more than, any other group of players did.

Evaluating each pitcher who appeared in the Futures Game and identifying the most similar current major-league pitchers and pitches with the aid of PITCHf/x.

Sample size or apple pies? You can choose only one. Apple pies—that’s what I thought. A quick glimpse of a prospect might not tell us all we need to know, but it’s still plenty tempting to draw possibly premature conclusions. With that in mind, I decided to watch the Futures Game for the second straight year and make snap judgments on every single pitcher, even though none of them threw more than a couple dozen pitches. Last year, my main takeaway was that Zach Britton was the man. He still is. This year, I came to the conclusion that the only way to top a Bernie Williams rendition of the national anthem is to catch a Sal Fasano first-base coach sighting.

The following table lists every pitcher who appeared in the game, in order of appearance. I’ll tackle them one by one, offering comps to current major leaguers where applicable, as well as links to videos of similar pitches.

Prospects Will Break Your Heart: Finding Julio Teheran

Jason Parks

Catching up with the diamond that's delivering from the diamonds of Colombia, with a little help from Paul Simon.

Okay, this is going to be a little strange. Some of you will no doubt hate what I’m about to bust out, and I can’t say that I blame you. It’s not always easy to listen to Paul Simon, and it’s even harder to extract prophecy from his narratives. But because I love the readers of Baseball Prospectus so very much, I went all the way back to 1972 to establish the provenance of the top pitching prospect in baseball, and I did so using Paul Simon’s words as my guide. This is either my finest hour, or an application essay for Bellevue.

“The mama pajama rolled out a bed
And she ran to the police station
When the papa found out he began to shout
And he started the investigation”

The Braves are consistently among the best systems, and are again thanks to the game's most impressive collection of Latin American pitching talent.
