Warning: players who appear in our live prospects listing, but are ranked near the very bottom of the list, may only appear in this position because their records have only become visible in the past few days and are still awaiting update. They may also only appear because they were once ranked higher and still technically qualify. As a side-effect of our automated processes, the end of the publicly-visible list also collects longshots, underdocumented signees, recently-retired players, foreign players unlikely to enter MLB, near-busts and other extreme dark-horse candidates. It does not mean that there are not 'better' prospects, only that better prospects in our system lack enough accurate data and/or scouting inputs to become visible at this time. Always read the detailed information and consult other sources before drawing conclusions about prospect viability, and never, ever, ever treat a 'ranking' alone as if it's meaningful.

Plucked from Tampa's unprotected roster in the winter of 2012, eft-handed slugger Matt Sweeney looks like a good fit for Baltimore, thanks to the organization's need for corner power. A strong, tree-trunk of a hitter, most call him a third baseman, but he's looking like a Casey Kotchman-style first basemen to us right now. His last couple of seasons were not awful, but were disappointing for a player many expected to be a top prospect by now. He really needs to dial it up for 2013, or risk a future in a new field, perhaps actual lumberjackery rather than the metaphorical.
