This article is part of our Farm Futures series.For the second year in a row, I will be going division by division, providing analysis on every fantasy-relevant prospect in baseball while also ranking those prospects in their respective systems. This means there will be 20-plus prospects ranked in certain systems and less than 10 prospects ranked in others. There is no point in listing an irrelevant prospect just to reach an arbitrary total of 10. Similarly, it is unfortunate to not include information on highly relevant prospects just because that prospect was not one of his team's 10 or 20 best.
The third installment takes us to the 117 prospects you need to know in the National League West. The Padres may have the most prospect depth in baseball (we'll find out when we see how many representatives the Yankees have in next week's installment) while the Giants have easily one of the three or four worst systems in the game.
