The story of the Rookie-level Pioneer League this summer was its crop of young players, the result of an earlier draft signing deadline. Grand Junction outfielder David Dahl, the 10th overall pick in June, was one of the most impressive high school draftees ever to come through the league and won the MVP award.

Two other prep players from this year's draft, Ogden shortstop Corey Seager and Billings outfielder Jesse Winker, also ranked among the league's top five prospects. So did Idaho Falls shortstop Adalberto Mondesi, who signed for $2 million last summer and made his pro debut in the Pioneer League at age 16.Winker was one of six Mustangs on our Top 20, more than any other team, though they weren't enough to push Billings into the playoffs. Another Mustang, righthander Jon Moscot, would have joined them if he hadn't fallen an inning short of qualifying. By contast, league champion Missoula placed only catcher Michael Perez on this list.
