Arizona Fall League Top 20 Prospects

1. Matt Wieters, c (Orioles)

2. Tommy Hanson, rhp (Braves)

3. Brian Matusz, rhp (Orioles)

4. Logan Morrison, 1b (Marlins)

5. Carlos Triunfel, ss/2b (Mariners)

Matusz is off to a great start thus far.  I'm encouraged that Brian falls just behind Hanson, who could be considered a top twenty prospect.  There isn't much to say here that hasn't been said already, but this list is encouraging even though Snyder didn't quite make it.  Prospects 11-20 are included in the link

 This from the chat:

Q: Steven M from NY asks:
What's the chances of Brian Matusz starting for the Oriols this year?

A: Kary Booher: I think probably slim and none, all because there is no need to rush him. The Orioles are rebuilding and have a chance to do their franchise right finally with Andy MacPhail now sitting in the president's chair and wheeling and dealing as their GM. His job is more than to just bring in talent. It's also to change the culture of the clubhouse after years of that ship sailing aimlessly in the AL East. I think that starts with Markakis and Jones, and Wieters will eventually become that franchise's big face. There is no need to bring Matusz into the fold just yet. Let him get his feet wet in the minors, much like Wieters did this past year. But even then, two years in the minors wouldn't be bad for Matusz or the Orioles for that matter. You're talking a guy who could be in a rotation with Chris Tillman and Jake Arietta. That would be something.
