I was wondering if any of you guys knew websites for best keeping track of which top prospects were still in on the MLB spring training roster.

Or a place to see current MLB rosters (would be a way to see rookies still on the rosters)

Some noteable top rookies still in Spring Training with the ML clubs.

Houston:
Carlos Correa - who at age 19...can he be the opening day starting SS?
George Springer - not surprising, starred at AAA last year

St. Louis
Stephen Piscotty - half of a season at AA last year - would be a big surprise, to make it ahead of Top 5 prospect Tavares (also was at AAA last yr)
Kolten Wong - ended up with STL in the WS, not a big surprise

Cubs
It looks like Javier Baez is still with the Cubs meanwhile Bryant, Solar, Almora and their other top prospects all got sent down.

Tigers
Nick Constallanos - ended season with DET, no big surprise.

Red Sox
Xander Boegartz - no surprise
Jackie Bradley Jr - no surprise, started last yr w/ big league club, Ellsbury gone
Christian Vasquez - catching prospect, only AA experience - amazing defense, platoon with AJ?

Reds
Billy Hamilton - ended season with Reds, not surprised, Choo gone.

There's a number of pitchers yet too...but harder to tell as they're not in the starting lineup every day.

And the Twins have Danny Santana still with the roster...

In my opinion the best website to track top prospects:
http://www.minorleagueball.com/

They have a MILB game day every day:

One of the best sites on the internet for prospect watching and the Curator - John Sickels -

In the MILB gameday, they also have the result for the top 100 prospects every day. They also have "Standout Performances" where some Twins often are found.

Vasquez is a guy I've had my eye on in dynasty style leagues for a while. He's got big power with solid defensive skills. Think a Miguel Olivo type with better ability to draw a walk, but probably similar batting average.
