Breaking Down the Top-50

Looking at the recently completed SeattleClubhouse Top-50 Mariners' prospect list from all angles.

As we've wrapped up our annual look at the Top-50 prospects in the organization for the Seattle Mariners, giving in-depth reports on those players five at a time, now it's time to take a look at that group as a whole in chart form. Everyone knows Taijuan Walker and James Paxton and are anxious to see if both will make the big league rotation for the M's, but where are the rest of the top prospects? Where is the system the strongest? What is the most common level for the top prospects? The most common age?

Here is the quick and dirty answers to those questions, showing the level that they last played in 2013 and the players ages as of today's date.
