Players to Watch at Each Level

Rate this Entry
I am curious as to who - each of you see as breakout "Players to Watch" at each minor league level.

Elizabethton - Besides new 2013 draft prospects - I see Joshua Burris as the player who should have moved up a level and as the player who will still impress.
Cedar Rapids - Adam Brett Walker was Top 5 in Appalachain League in HRs (1st)- Runs Scored (4th) - RBIs (4th) - Total Bases (5th) - Triples (tied with 3rd). He is my stat line prospect for the MWL in 2013. If he controls his SO totals (2nd) - the upside could be off the charts.
Fort Myers - DJ Baxendale is one of the best pitchers in the system. He like Matt Tomshaw, have the ability to throw strikes and still keep batters off balanced. I'm going with whichever guy has the most innings pitched at this level.
New Brittan - Danny Santana has the flare and ability to become a solid SS in our system. This is the year he takes his game to a new level (Defensively & Offensively). Nate Roberts is my "2nd" choice if he ends up in NB.
Rochester - Chris Herrmann becomes the catcher of the future with his performance this season. He will put together a complete season on both sides of the ball. He will slug closer to .500 this year and improve on his already impressive double totals and run scored totals (100+ this season).

    I agree that Baxendale has a chance to be a bright spot in the Ft Myers rotation
    I would expect him to be in New Brittain by early June

    As for CR, Buxton is the guy for me
    could see him in Ft Myers as some point this Summer

    I agree Buxton is the guy. He won't be a player to watch because everybody will already be watching him. I hope people don't put to many expectations on the kid and allow him to grow into his 5 tool potential. He like all prospects, are a work in progress. One of my points was that while everyone is watching Buxton do his thing - watch the ABW stat line sneak up on ya. Same for my other choices in their respective levels.
