Read about Jake Goebbert and David Martinez

Baseball America has a little feature up where they highlight the "32nd Team:"

We provide a Top 30 Prospects list for each of the 30 organizations, and we used to call the leftover reports "The 31st Team." In 2009, we created a bonus supplement for readers who buy the Handbook directly from us, giving them one prospect for each farm system. That essentially became the 31st team, so now we consider the extras as "The 32nd Team."

Click the link to read more about Jake Goebbert:
He wouldn't be a factor if he didn't hit lefthanded, but the platoon advantage gives him a chance to become a second-division regular on an outfield corner if he keeps hitting.

David Martinez:
His ability to sink the ball should allow him to survive in one of the minors' toughest pitching environments. He still projects as a reliever in the long term.

Thanks for the link. Nice to see Goebbert recognized, as he has largely flown under the propspect community radar. Also nice to see the later round guys succeed.

I see Josh Zeid made it in as well.
