So far, 375 players have reached the big leagues after signing out of the 2005-07 drafts. That works out to an average of 12.5 team, with totals ranging from the Cardinals (24) on the high end to the Astros (four on the low end). Here's how many major leaguers each club signed, along with their most productive player to date:

Team No. Most Productive Big Leaguer
Cardinals 24 Colby Rasmus (No. 28, 2005)
Padres 22 Chase Headley (2nd round, 2005)
Marlins 21 Mike Stanton (2nd round, 2007)
Tigers 18 Matt Joyce (12th round, 2005)
Diamondbacks 17 Justin Upton (No. 1, 2005)
Reds 17 Jay Bruce (No. 12, 2005)
Yankees 17 Brett Gardner (3rd round, 2005)
Giants 14 Tim Lincecum (No. 10, 2006)
Rangers 14 Tommy Hunter (supp. 1st round, 2007)
Red Sox 14 Jacoby Ellsbury (No. 23, 2005)
Brewers 13 Ryan Braun (No. 5, 2005)
Mets 13 Mike Pelfrey (No. 9, 2005)
Twins 13 Matt Garza (No. 25, 2005)
Angels 12 Peter Bourjos (10th round, 2005)
Athletics 12 Trevor Cahill (2nd round, 2006)
Orioles 12 Matt Wieters (No. 5, 2007)
Blue Jays 11 Ricky Romero (No. 6, 2005)
Braves 11 Yunel Escobar (2nd round, 2005)
Mariners 11 Doug Fister (7th round, 2006)
Phillies 11 Josh Outman (10th round, 2005)
Indians 10 Josh Tomlin (19th round, 2006)
Nationals 10 Ryan Zimmerman (No. 4, 2005)
White Sox 10 Clayton Richard (8th round, 2005)
Pirates 9 Andrew McCutchen (No. 11, 2005)
Cubs 8 Darwin Barney (4th round, 2007)
Royals 8 Alex Gordon (No. 2, 2005)
Rays 7 Evan Longoria (No. 3, 2006)
Dodgers 6 Clayton Kershaw (No. 6, 2006)
Rockies 6 Troy Tulowitzki (No. 7, 2005)
Astros 4 Bud Norris (6th round, 2006)

Of course, quantity is not the same as quality. The Rays rank just 27th with seven big leaguers, but they might have the best 2005-07 draft crop when all is said and done, thanks to Longoria, David Price and Matt Moore. The Dodgers and Rockies are tied for next to last with sixth, but there would be more than a few teams that would offer up their entire 2005-07 drafts for Kershaw or Tulowitzki.
