MLB prospects, for the most part, are a crap shoot. Boston, Anaheim, and Minnesota are the only teams that seem to consistently bring ML ready talent to the big leagues. Despite their financial capabilities (Boston and Anaheim), they're definitely doing something right in their development.
The rest of the teams in the majors? Well you could pretty much flip a coin with their prospects, unless he's a first rounder and even then you never know.
For the record, I have nothing to base this off of, other than my own observations of the league over the past couple of seasons.
