As a rough estimate, each organization has about 250 players at some level or stage of the minor league system. This article highlights 12 players per week. So, there's plenty of prospect prosperity to sustain us for the foreseeable future.

As always, feel free to leave a comment below or contact me on Twitter, @JesseLSiegel, for all of your prospect needs. Please hunker down and stay safe during these difficult, uncertain times. And a shoutout to all the doctors, nurses, first responders, police officers, grocery store workers, delivery persons and all other essential employees who are keeping us healthy and safe.
