Minor League Level Review (AA): Baez Debuts, Franco Keeps Crushing, Stroman Pitching Well

USA TODAY Sports

Jason Hunt takes a look at some of the top prospects in the three AA leagues, including Javier Baez, Maikel Franco, Marcus Stroman and many more in this week's installment of Minor League Level Review.

Every other Wednesday, I will be taking a quick look at some of the top prospects at the AA level, including their stats for the season so far. All statistics are courtesy of Fangraphs.com, and are through the games of Monday, 7/8/13. Have a question about a specific prospect or player? Post it in the comments and we'll discuss it.

The Eastern League is having their All-Star game tonight, with Jesse Biddle, Anthony Ranaudo, Cesar Puello, Jameson Taillon, and Brian Goodwin among the top prospects on the rosters. The Southern League will be having their game next Wednesday, with Arismendy Alcantara, David Holmberg, and Joc Pederson among the starters for that game.
