Pioneer League Top 20 Prospects With Scouting Reports
The Rookie-level Pioneer League is always a tricky league to evaluate, as it's somewhat of a tweener circuit. The Diamondbacks and Rockies don't have complex-based teams so their PL club serves as their lowest-level U.S. affiliate. By contrast, the other six organizations in the league don't have teams in the New-York Penn or Northwest leagues, so their PL clubs are their highest-level half-season affiliates. The dichotomy creates an interesting mix of talent in the hitter-friendly league, with players ranging from raw Latin American prospects to much more polished college draft picks.
