Oakland Athletics 2015 Top 20 Prospects
You can say that the Oakland A’s probably made a huge mistake last year by trading away Addison Russell. But fortunately for Oakland this farm system is loaded with talent at shortstop, which is becoming a hot commodity around baseball. Oakland has three shortstops in their top 10 and five in their top 20. The A’s will hope to see top prospect Franklin Barreto make his debut sometime in 2016.
