Your minor league top 5 by position

Thought this would be an interesting way to get different opinions from posters on our minor league strength. Feel free to pick a position then rank the top 5 Pirate minor league players that fit in at that position.

My choice is the outfield.

 

  1. Starling Marte - tools to do it all and has been producing. If he learns some plate discipline he could become an impact player.
  2. Evan Chambers - does it all but hit for average and that is misleading. This cat gets on base at a .400 clip
  3. Mel Rojas Jr. - the small sample size and reviews have been excellent. He has excellent size and played in a wooden bat league. Should quickly adapt and rise up the system
  4. Robbie Grossman - very young and has all the tools. Faced with adversity he has rebounded and is starting to put up some nice looking stats.
  5. Exicardo Cayonez - bonus baby from the international signings.Results have been good so far.. speedy slap hitter who may mature into a legit cf with top end speed.

Overall the Bucs have some interesting OF and although it may not be or strength. It is far from a weakness and should have us talking their potential for many years to come.

 

OK.. it's your turn. Pick a position and  give us a top 5 or feel free to critique my list and let me know who I left out.
