2017 Double-A Classification All-Star Team

Baseball America rewards prospects at all levels of the minor leagues with our annual Classification All-Star Teams. Kyle Glaser took the lead on the selection process, and this year we present for the first time a Dominican Summer League team, courtesy of international guru Ben Badler. We slant our coverage of the minors toward player development, and as such we reward the best performances by prospects on our all-star teams. That way, we look back at the 2017 season with one eye—and forward to the future with the other.
