With so many teams rebuilding again in 2017, having handy sources of information for tracking your team's minor league prospects is vital. My recommendation: MLBfarm.com. The site, run by Daren Willman but not formally affiliated with MLB, is amazing. It's a one-stop shop for stats of of every minor league player. In just a couple minutes, you can get a sense for how each of your favorite prospects did the night before. For example, over lunch today I checked in on the White Sox top prospects and learned that Yoan Moncada went 3/6 last night with three singles and two strikeouts, Reynaldo Lopez gave up 2 ER and 3 BB in 3 IP, and Zack Collins went 3/4 with two doubles. Go check it out!
