Top 12 for '12: Trout hot at Triple-A
These rankings are a bit different than other prospect rankings lists you'll see, as these are strictly for 2012 fantasy purposes only. So not only does talent and recent performance play a role in the rankings, potential paths to the big leagues also factor in. In addition, all young players in the minors are eligible, including those in "prospect purgatory," those who have exceeded rookie status but are still young and unproven commodities.
