Minor League Class of 2012 – Batters

This list was derived by searching the rosters of AAA, AA, and A+ minor leagues then searching for those names in the 2013 MLB stats. This list is sorted by highest WAA. The rules for being part of this list are:

  • player played > 100 PAs on minor league team in 2012
  • player played < 100 PAs on minor league team in 2013

As should be expected top end WAAs get higher the more years away from the minors.  Some of these players have been in and out of minors.   All of them played a significant time in the minors in 2012 and not so significant in 2013.   WAAs are also higher than the Class of 2013 because many of these players were able to play an entire season.
