  • Time Capsule: Top International Prospects for 2012

    The purpose of this thread is to follow the careers of the top International Prospects listed in MLB's Pipeline for 2012. Several of them are already stateside, some are top prospects in their respective organizations, others have had injuries, and some haven't left their countries of origin. Whatever the case, it will be interesting to follow their careers from the beginning, or at least in this case almost the beginning. Will any of these young men make the Majors? Will any of them be All-Stars? Or will none of them make it out of the Minor League ranks? We will find out in the next few years. Here is a table with their names, original signing team and their current team with organization.
