Fantasy Focus: Waiting in the Wings

Marc Normandin

Three top Triple-A outfield prospects could all see the bigs this year, but can they help your fantasy squad?

The minor league season has been going for even less time than its major league cousin, but that won’t stop us from taking a look at some prospects who may end up in the majors at some point in 2011.
