Where baseball's top prospects are starting the 2018 season

Team to watch
The Biloxi Shuckers should have one of the Double-A Southern League's more feared offenses, with Lucas Erceg, Corey Ray, Trent Grisham -- all Top 10 Brewers prospects -- Jake Gatewood and Troy Stokes in their lineup on any given night. And it might not be long until 2017 first-rounder and top prospect Keston Hiura is hitting in the middle of an already dangerous Shuckers' order. Biloxi's projected starting rotation is equally impressive, headlined by Luis Ortiz, Adrian Houser and Cody Ponce. Lefty Kodi Medeiros could be the best of the group if everything finally clicks, and those inside the organization have right-hander Zack Brown pegged as a breakout candidate even though he largely bypassed the Class A Advanced level.

New faces
The Brewers' Top 30 Prospects list doesn't include any players who were not with the organization last year.

On the shelf
Mario Feliciano, Milwaukee's top catching prospect, is a bit behind schedule defensively after experiencing some soreness during throwing drills in spring camp. He's expected to begin his season in earnest in a couple weeks and will likely report to Carolina once healthy.
