San Francisco Giants
Eric Surkamp LHP (United States) AA (10-4, 2.02) - His AA numbers did not translate well in the major leagues. Not overpowering so 17 walks in 26 plus innings will not get major league hitters out.
Tommy Joseph C (United States) AA (.270, 22, 95) - He may need to play first base if he plays for the Giants. Too many good young catchers ahead of him, i.e. Posey and Sanchez.
Gary Brown OF (United States) Hi A (.336, 14, 80) - Playing in the same AFL outfield with Mike Trout and Bryce Harper. His 13 triples and 53 stolen bases are evidence he can fly.
Adam Duvall 3B (United States) Low A (.285, 22, 87) - The 2010 11th round pick shows some good pop for the hot corner.
Shawn Sanford RHP (United States) Low A (10-10, 2.55) - Good year still did not get him on the prospect lists. Relies more on command than velocity.
Ben Thomas 1b (United States) short season (.346, 6, 29) - With Brandon Belt in front of him and at 6′1″ 240, he will have to show a big bat to get any major league first base time.
Jose Cuevas 3B (United States) short season (.337, 9, 46) - His good year got him four games in AAA. A nice 22/20 walk to K ratio.
Yoan Gregorio RHP (Dominican Republic) short season (3-0, 2.32) - Only 19, 2011 was his stateside debut.
Joe Panik SS (United States) short season (.341, 6, 54) - He won’t be a great shortstop that makes the spectacular plays, but if you are looking for a steady shortstop the St. John product could be your man.
Brett Krill OF (United States) short season (.304, 6, 43) - A 25th round 2010 pick usually does not have years like this.
Jesus Galindo OF (Venezuela) short season (.276, 2, 20) - Overcame a slow start to hit well. His 47 steals are evidence of his speed.
Mike Murray DH (United States) short season (.326, 6, 40) - signed as a non drafted free agent. Needs to continue to hit to keep the spot light on him.
Cody Ransom SS (United States) AAA (.317, 27, 92) - At 35 he is more a utility man for a major league team.
Collin Cowgill OF (United States) AAA (.354, 13, 70) - The Diamondbacks have two outfielders younger than him. At 5′9″ he relies on his speed.
Paul Goldschmidt 1B (United States) AA (.306, 30, 94) - His homeruns got him a mid season major league callup.
Ryan Wheeler 3B (United States) AA (.294, 16, 89) - Another good year will get him a callup next year.
A.J. Pollock OF (United States) AA (.307, 8, 73) - The Diamondbacks may not have room in the outfield for him. At 24 his time is now.
David Nick 2b (United States) High A (.300, 13, 68) - Good offensive potential for second base.
Tyler Skaggs RHP (United States) High A (5-5, 3.22) - An Angels 2009 supplemental first round pick was traded for Dan Haren. Doesn’t have the fastball of Haren, but his curveball is his signature pitch.
Jimmy Comerota 3B (United States) short season (.322, 1, 34) - At 24 a bit old for short season. Struggled in AA.
Jonathan Griffin 1b (United States) short season (.295, 18, 59) - At 6′7″ he can hit the ball a long way.
Ryamond Hernandez RHP (United States) short season (8-3, 4.35) - Numbers do not seem dominating for an All Star.
Taylor Siemens LHP (United States) short season (3-1, 2.23) - 2011 18th round pick had a good debut.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Dana Eveland LHP (United States) AAA (12-8, 4.35) - Pitched better in the major leagues but the Dodgers play in a more pitcher friendly park than some of the Pacific Coast League parks.
Alfredo Silverio OF (Dominican Republic) AA (.306, 16, 85) - A nice breakout year in AA, especially with the 18 triples.
Scott Van Slyke OF (United States) AA (.348, 20, 92) - Trying to live up to his father’s reputation.
Nathan Eovaldi RHP (United States) AA (6-5, 2.62) - Used his success for callup with the Dodgers.
Angelo Songco DH (United States) High A (.313, 29, 114) - Needs to hit lefthanders better, but 114 RBIs is always impressive.
Jon Michael Redding RHP (United States) High A (11-7, 3.66) - At 24 and repeating the California League he was due for success.
Joseph Winker OF (United States) short season (.374, 4, 76) - Despite the impressive average did not make the top prospect list for the Arizona League.
Joc Pederson OF (United States) short season (.353, 11, 64) - Same as Winker. Despite the numbers still no prospect list.
San Diego Padres
Nathan Freiman 1B (United States) High A (.288, 22, 111) - At 6′7″ he will need to keep on stinging the long ball to wrest the job away from Rizzo.
Rymer Liriano OF (Dominican Republic) Low A (.319, 12, 62) - Won the MVP of the Midwest league. Shows both power and speed with 65 stolen bases to go with a .499 slugging percentage.
Yoan Alcantara OF (Dominican Republic) short season (.348, 7, 46) - A five tool guy who doesn’t like to take a walk.
Travis Whitmore 3B (United States) short season (.297, 1, 32) - A nice year for a 35th round 2011 pick.
Nolan Arenado 3b (United States) High A (.298, 20, 122) - Rockies third baseman of the future. A 2009 second round pick.
Josh Rutledge SS (United States) High A (.348, 9, 71) - The third round 2010 pick will need to find another position if he wants to play short for the Rockies. He has the pop for third but logical move could be second.
Kent Matthes OF (United States) High A (.334, 23, 94) - He shows the best power in the Rockies system. He could move to a corner.
Chad Bettis RHP (United States) High A (12-5, 3.34) - Nice high 90s fastball will get his swings and misses.
Kyle Parker OF (United States) Low A (.285, 21, 95) - Still playing football. Talent for both.
Christian Bergman RHP (United States) short season (7-5, 2.59) - Two complete game shutouts, unusual for a short season league.
Kenneth Roberts LHP (United States) short season (4-2, 1.86) - 10 saves for the 25th round 2010 draft pick.
William Swanner C (United States) short season (.264, 10, 24) - A long way to go to beat out catcher of the future Rosario.
David Kandilas OF (United States) short season (.327, 6, 35) - Aussie keeps on improving. Third year is a breakout year.c75
