One of my favorite things to follow as a sports fan is Minor League Baseball. The mystery of a prospect is very intriguing to me. Projecting prospects is an extremely hard thing to do. For every Derek Jeter there are hundreds of guys who never even get a chance in MLB. When I was first given this opportunity to write for Total Sports Blog, I knew that I wanted to write something about prospects. I have decided, instead of just making a list of top prospects, I am going to hand pick a few guys every so often and write a little bit about each player. Some of these guys will top of the line prospects, and others will be under the radar guys that I particularly like. Today, I will profile Oscar Taveras of the Cardinals, Gary Sanchez of the Yankees, and Tony Zych of the Cubs.
