I have followed the minor leagues pretty closely for quite some time, and found this listing to be pretty good in ranking current prospects. Unfortunately, they don't identify the team, but if you go to the official minor league baseball site (2nd link) and type in the name you can get some club and statistical data for each player:

Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman just recently moved up to AA for the Braves and they're off to a good start. Tommy Hanson is already doing well in Atlanta.

OP, do you read the baseball prospectus? It's had some really stellar reporting of up and coming players. It's very SABER-heavy, but its good stuff

Yes, I read BPro each year. I find their analysis interesting, but think that they are a little too stats oriented. I like a balanced approach between tools and stats, more tools early on in player development, and stats later. I find that BPro gets a little carried away with their own philosophies, and if I mix in Baseball America with BPro I generally get a more balanced (and accurate) prospect view.

Dom Brown isn't even the best outfield prospect in the Phillies orginization, though I do think he's a stud. I like Taylor more and I think Drabek is going to be a future 20-win type guy. Nice to see Knapp get some love. Also keep an eye out for Tim Kenneley, Joe Savery, Tyler Cloyd and Sebastian Valle
