Another thing that fans love about Spring Training is getting a glimpse at their favorite team’s top prospects. Every spring, MLB teams give many of their top prospects, especially those who are in the upper minors, opportunity to showcase their talents in Major League camp.

For many fans Spring Training is the first time they get an extended look at team’s top prospects. Watching these prospects in Spring Training and checking their stats in the box score can begin to create excitement among fans for these players’ futures. This holds a little extra weight when prospects are performing well in Spring Training.

In Major League camp for the Pittsburgh Pirates, a quartet of top prospects made a lasting impact before being sent back to minor league camp. Each of these four players will start the season at Triple-A Indianapolis, and each of them will have an opportunity to earn a Major League call up at some point this season.
