The return of baseball is mere days away, and fans across the sport are getting an idea of what their big league team could look like in the unique campaign that 2020 will be.

Major League teams submitted their 60-man player pools on Sunday, and a wealth of top prospects are threaded throughout each circuit. Players will report to their respective “summer camps” this week, with a targeted start date for the Major League season set for July 23 or July 24.

Top overall prospect Wander Franco leads the way as a member of the Rays’ player pool, and a wealth of other Top 100 talent joined him in rosters announced on Sunday.

Teams took different approaches in assembling their groups. The Orioles, for example, listed only 44 names -- and only one of the organization's top five prospect -- on the roster they released Sunday, while the Mariners have all of their top 14 prospects and their top two 2020 Draft picks in their pool and the Braves boast their top 12.

Pitchers and catchers will report to their respective camps on Wednesday, with everyone else arriving two days later. The Major League season will open with 30-man active rosters that will be trimmed to 28 after two weeks and to 26 two weeks after that for the balance of the season.

Notable prospects, including players on MLB Pipeline's Top 100 Prospects list, top Draft picks and more are listed below with their franchise and overall ranks. This story will be updated as more player pools are made public following Sunday's 4 p.m. ET deadline.
