“The Truth is in the Cards”

Top stars from the 42 Minor League Baseball Teams on the Chopping Block

I was recently inspired by @BaseballTravelr‘s post of a picture of the 2012 Appalachian League Top Prospect Baseball card set with the post:

Going through some of the @AppyLeague Top Prospect sets I picked up this week and throwing the Bullshit Flag on MLB’s assertion that very few players from the lower leagues make it to the show. 2012 alone Daniel Norris, Roberto Osuna, Blake Snell, Max Kapler, S Matz, & C Kelly

The post got me thinking about the teams that are currently named on the contraction list and some of the talent these teams have produced over the years. I thought it would be fun to post cards of a current or former MLB player that played for these teams. Please enjoy!
