Chih-Hsien Chiang OF (Taiwan) AA (.340, 18, 76) - He actually made the Eastern League All Star while playing for the Red Sox affiliate. With the Mariners he only hit .208 with no homeruns in 130 at bats. A good defensive centerfielder, he needs to show more consistency with the bat.
Jamal Austin OF (United States) short season (.335, 0, 13) - At 5′9″ Jamal needs to play the little man’s game. A nice 22/21 walk to K ration resulted in a .408 OBA. He tired in August when he hit only .218.
Jabori Blash OF (United States) short season (.292, 11, 43) - Lots of power in his bat. More than 50% of his hits went for extra bases with 16 doubles and 11 homeruns.
Jose Campos RHP (Venezuela) short season (5-5, 2.32) - Mid-90s fastball led the Northwest League in strikeouts.
Anthony Recker C (United States) AAA (.287, 16, 48) - A nice season gave him a September call-up but he may have been tired. He hit only .216 in August and .176 with the Athletics.
Jai Miller OF (United States) AAA (.276, 32, 88) - 179 K’s in 110 games is alarming. Struck out in five of his 12 major league at bats, but also hit a homerun.
Jermaine Mitchell OF (United States) AA (.355, 10, 50) - His 15 doubles and 13 triples gave him a triple double. Needs to improve his stolen base jumps (14 for 27). The A’s will be looking for outfielders next year.
Grant Green UTL (United States) AA (.291, 9, 62) - An outfield move is in his future.
Michael Choice OF (United Stats) High A (.285, 30, 82) - The 2010 number one pick has a lot of juice in his bat. A better arm would make him a 5-tool player.
Josh Whitaker DH (United States) Low A (.326, 17, 68) - An excellent debut year for the 25th round 2010 pick.
Kelvin Rojas OF (Dominican Republic) short season (.379, 3, 39) - A breakout year for Kelvin after playing four seasons in the Dominican Summer League and one year in the Arizona League.
Los Angeles Angles
Mike Trout OF (United States) AA (.326, 11, 38) - One of the better prospects in baseball. May not hit for a lot of power, but combine his speed and average and he will put up major league All Star numbers.
Garrett Richards RHP (United States) AA (12-2, 3.15) - Made his major league debut based on his stellar AA numbers.
Matt Shoemaker RHP (United States) AA (12-5, 2.48) - His numbers got him voted as the Texas League pitcher of the year. He also pitched for the United States team in the World Cup. At 25 he is in the sunset of his prospect career.
Kole Calhoun OF (United States) High A (.324, 22, 99) - The 2010 8th round draft pick has shone an excellent eye with 73 walks and .410 OBA in addition to his power. At 25 he needs to advance quicker through the system.
Taylor Lindsey 2B (United States) short season (.362, 9, 46) - The 2010 first round pick had an excellent debut, hitting .343 against lefthanders. Voted MVP of the Pioneer League.
Ryan Jones OF (United States) short season (.319, 12, 61) - The Diamondbacks released him and the Angels signed him in 2010 as a free agent.
Frazier Hall DH (United States) short season (.355, 9, 46) - The 2011 pick hit .372 against lefthanders.
Joey Butler OF (United States) AAA (.322, 12, 57) - It’s a crowded Rangers outfield and at 26 Butler only has Nelson Cruz to look at for incentive.
Tommy Mendonca DH (United States) AA (.278, 25, 87) - Tommy has been the power on the United States World Cup team.
Mike Olt 3B (United States) High A (.267, 14, 42) - The 2010 first round pick has shown some good power.
Ryan Strausborger OF (United States) High A (.270, 8, 57) - His numbers were an improvement on last year’s numbers. Shows good speed with 31 stolen bases.
Jared Price OF (United States) High A (.282, 8, 72) - At 25 he is a bit old for playing A ball but a nice 47/47 walk to whiff ratio.
Robbie Ross LHP (United States) High A (9-4, 2.26) - His success transferred to AA (2.61) and if his success continues next year expect his major league debut.
Odubel Herrera 2B (Venezuela) Low A (.306, 3, 56) - Downside to his year is that his strikeouts increased compared to previous two years.
Jurickson Profar SS (Curacao) Low A (.286, 12, 65) - Voted the MVP of the league. Has the potential to be one of the best shortstops in baseball, but with Andrus ahead of him the Rangers can be patient.
Christian Villanueva Utl (Mexico) Low A (.278, 17, 84) - His 32 stolen bases gives the Mexican native a nice combination of power and speed.
Kevin Torres C (Puerto Rico) short season (.345, 4, 30) - For Kevin, this was his third year in the Arizona League.
