29 of MiLB’s best in Eastern League … for now

The Thunder front office is hoping 29 of the best prospects in all of Minor League Baseball, according to Baseball America, will help lure more fans to Waterfront Park this summer as many will be visiting Trenton at some point this season.

However, those aching to see Harrisburg’s Stephen Strasburg, the hard-throwing top pick in last year’s draft, are facing long odds as the Senators do not visit until July 1-4, and Strasburg is widely expected to be long gone by then.

The same also can be applied to Reading’s stud outfielder, Domonic Brown, since the R-Phils – in a twisted form of scheduling logic – face the Thunder only once in Trenton all season (July 15-18) despite playing in the same division and the two rival franchises separated by a mere 90 miles.
The complete list of Baseball America’s Top 10 Organizational Prospects in the Eastern League is below, along with the dates those clubs are in town.
