Here it is:

PITCHERS

Ryan Beckman
Matt Benedict
Emmanuel de Leon
Zack Dodson
Kenn Kasparek
Nick Kingham
Joan Montero
A.J. Morris
Jhonathan Ramos
Joely Rodriguez
Tyler Sample
Adrian Sampson

CATCHERS

INFIELDERS

Kelson Brown
Jarek Cunningham
Alen Hanson
Justin Howard
Drew Maggi
Gift Ngoepe
Andy Vasquez

OUTFIELDERS

Keon Broxton
Willy Garcia
Mel Rojas Jr.
Junior Sosa

Not the most prospect-heavy bunch, but Hanson (above) and Kingham are two good ones, and the Pirates are aggressively promoting Rodriguez, still just 22 and coming off a good year in West Virginia and Bradenton. Garcia, who's 21, is also worth watching.
