Prospect season has arrived and in case you missed it, we rolled out the rankings for prospects #11-20 and #21-31 last week.

On Tuesday, I took the time to point out that the low minors are now in full swing, which has given the Diamondbacks four new affiliates to watch. Whereas the Dominican Summer League and Arizona Rookie League teams are full of international prospects to keep an eye on, the Missoula Osprey and the Hillsboro Hops are a more balanced …
