Most leagues are lucky if one or two elite pitching prospects make an appearance during the season. In 2012, the high Class A Florida State League had two of the game's top 10 pitching prospects on the same team.

Righthanders Gerrit Cole, the No. 1 pick in the 2011 draft, and Jameson Taillon, the No. 2 selection in 2010, spent the first two months together at Bradenton before Cole was promoted to Double-A. As impressive as they were, the Marauders finished with the FSL's second-worst record and another frontline starter, Jupiter's Jose Fernandez, earned the nod as the league's top prospect.

Fernandez and Cole were two of four 2011 first-rounders to spend significant time in the league. The others, Brevard County righthander Taylor Jungmann and lefty Jed Bradley, failed to make this list. Jupiter also claimed the top position prospect in the league, with outfielder Christian Yelich beating out Lakeland third baseman Nick Castellanos for that honor.

That's an impressive list. 1/3 of baseballs overall top 15 prospects for 2013

Nice to see Ngoepe on there. Amazing story with that kid if anyone wants to learn about him. To have progressed this far from where he came from is simply unreal. Even if his hitting doesn't develop any more, he still has the glove to be a starting SS in the majors.
Looking for - Mitch Keller, Jameson Taillon, and Austin Meadows
