Astros Top 10 Prospects

We are less than one month away from when pitchers and catchers report for spring training. Since we are in the season, I figured I would go ahead and make a top prospect list before spring training gets going. Others such as BA and MLB.com have released list that we all don't necessarily agree with but that is what is so good about watching prospects, people have different opinions. There isn't much I can say about these guys that we don't already know. Anyways, here is to a great 2014 to the Astros and the minor league affiliates.
