Minor League Awards

I am going to pick the top hitter, starting pitcher and reliever at each of the Pirates top 8 affiliates. I am also going to pick two notable hitters and a disappointing hitter and pitcher. The players must meet the following criteria: In the full season leagues the hitters need at least 200 PA, the SP need at least 10 starts and the RP need at least 40 IP. The numbers are exactly half for the four short season leagues (100 PA 5 GS and 20 IP respectively). There is also an age restriction of 25 y.o. for AAA, 24 y.o. for AA, 23 y.o. for A+, 22 y.o. for A, 21 y.o. for A- and 20 y.o. for the 3 rookie leagues. Anyone over that age will not be considered even though there are a few deserving candidates.
