Top 65 D-backs Prospects for 2010 - Free Edition

For the past six years, FutureBacks.com has ranked the top 50 prospects in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. This year, with a whopping 37 new prospects entering the organization via June's draft - including seven of the top 64 players taken overall and 29 players selected in the first 25 rounds - we had to expand it to 65. Even still, we had to leave some very promising players off the list.

Notes: Listed age is as of January 1st, 2010.  NR = Not Ranked in 2009; IE = Ineligible for ranking in 2009
