A few of these guys are up as of recently.  Others aren’t, but should be soon.  And then a few more might not surface this year, but the mere possibility of their being called up warrants a mention.  Please understand that I’m using the term “prospects” loosely here — some of the names that follow graduated their prospect status long ago. 

Please, blog, may I have some more?
