Mike Trout MLB.com unveiled its Top 50 prospect list in a special on MLB Network with Angels outfielder Mike Trout, pictured, leading the list -- you can see the entire list here , plus video highlights for each player.

It's no surprise Trout led the list and even less of a surprise that the Royals had six prospects in the top 50, more than any other team. Tampa Bay had four, while the Braves, Reds, Rockies, Yankees, Mariners and Blue Jays had three prospects on the lsit.

Four teams -- the Mets, Marlins, Brewers and A's -- weren't represented, while 14 teams had one player on the list.

Jake Odorizzi, the right-hander sent to Kansas City in exchange for Zack Greinke, was No. 37 on the list, while Chris Archer, who was sent from the Cubs to the Rays in the Matt Garza deal, was ranked No. 47. Casey Kelly, one of the prospects sent from the Red Sox to the Padres in the Adrian Gonzalez deal, was ranked No. 22.

Angels:  OF + fish name = we'll take him.  Too bad Kevin Bass and Tim Salmon are retired.

You really were not able to make the fish connection. He was obviously joking.

who are you talking about? they didn't even make the top 50. I am a little surprised Trout made 1 but he is great and should be top 5. Great average hitter, has some pop, steals tons of bases and is a good fielder. All around player. Could be righthanded version of carl crawford.
