For my last Minor League Update of 2012, I put together a 25-man roster of prospects who have been traded so far this offseason. There was a lot of starting pitching depth with four or five pretty good pitchers that didn't make the cut. There weren't any good first base prospects and only two very good outfield prospects. Besides that, it's a pretty solid squad.

In parentheses is their 'original team to their current team'. Also listed is their projected level at the start of 2013. Click on the player's name to access the player card with stats and other info.

Have a Happy New Year!

Interesting compilation. I wonder if this roster or the current Houston Astros MLB and MiLB players as an entity would be the better team 4 years from now.
