    Awesome blog - really cool to compare especially with Franklin up and having some success in Seattle already.

    One minor thing I'd like to see included in addition to level, what league they played in at that level. California League and Florida State league, for instance, are completely different animals when it comes to hitting.

    Thanks. There is no doubt the Rosario stands with the best of them bat-wise. Unfortunately, defense is a difference-maker, and we don't know where Rosario stands there, yet. The other guys have all shown they'll handle 2B in the majors (well, Gyorko might be a 3B, but his bat is that good). If Rosario can't play 2B, his value to the Twins declines immensely.

    Rosario has been very good at 2B this year, there is no reason to think he won't stay. I'd wager had Rosario cemented his status as a 2B when the prospect rankings came out, he would have been on each and every one of them.

    Rosario just moved to AA. Hopefully they will keep him in AAA most of next year. He needs to be solid with the glove. He is certain to struggle at the plate as he transitions to the majors. He doesn't need to compound that with struggle in the field.

    Good points. Also, with Dozier hitting better and playing superlative 2B, why rush Rosario? Right now the Twins middle infield is about the last thing that needs to be fixed. Both Florimon and Dozier are hitting, and they're one of the best SS/2B combos in the league.

    The middle infield might be one of the few positives this season so far.
