Basically any minor leaguer of any note is in their database. I'm not sure why other sites don't do that; it seems like a relatively low-cost thing to do, but they don't. So if you use CBS you'll read these threads of, "Person X just added to Yahoo!!!" and think to yourself, "Meh. He was drafted in my league a year and a half ago." So if you like deep prospect keepers and don't want to screw around with writing in player names, CBS has that going for it, too.
CBS also lets you add players not in their database. So, in a deep league, in that case where someone in the minors isn't added via CBS, you can still add them to your league rosters.
We actually use that to track future draft picks. We add players with last name "DraftPick" and first name "FantasyTeamName" Then they appear on your roster and you can trade them like any other player.
Yah. We did that last year when one of the guys in our league drafted Strasburg (into a minor league keeper spot).
