After recognizing each team’s top performers in minor league baseball, we turn to the best throughout the entire minors!

Through the entire month of October, we examined the top performers in the minors for each team. We will now expand that to all of minor league baseball with a top performer for each position around the diamond and a half dozen pitchers.

This team is selected on numbers alone, not on the prospect status of the player, though in close “battles” there is weight given to age relative to league. That would mean a pair of players both hitting for an .800 OPS at second base in AA would lead to the 20-year-old performing at that level getting more consideration for this list than a 26-year-old.

We will start with the minor league leaders on the season, then examine our team of the year…
