The Minnesota Twins have a guy named Byron Buxton, and if you haven't heard of him, you should familiarize yourself because he's going to be a stud.

Buxton is the top prospect in all of baseball, which of course also makes him the top outfield prospect in the game, but behind him that latter category are two guys who could be Texas Rangers stars down the road or swapped for someone else who will be.

According to MLB.com, Lewis Brinson is the No. 2 outfield prospect in the game just ahead of No. 3 Nomar Mazara, who is ranked by many as the top prospect in the Rangers' organization. What's that discrepancy mean? Nothing but the fact that both are very good players with high ceilings.
