The Double-A Texas League featured one pleasant storyline after another
this season. A handful of prospects made the circuit a nice whistle
stop, while others learned to blend their tools to become intriguing
prospects.

There wasn’t a true can’t-miss prospect along the lines of a recent
standout such as Troy Tulowitzki when the season began, yet excitement
built around a handful of other players. Frisco sent six core players
on to the majors, led by slugging first baseman Chris Davis, and had
four of the league’s top six position prospects.

Several notable pitchers appeared in the TL but didn’t qualify for this
list, including lefties Brett Anderson (Midland), Derek Holland
(Frisco) and Jaime Garcia (Springfield) and righties Trevor Cahill
(Midland), Neftali Feliz (Frisco) and Carlos Rosa (Northwest Arkansas).
