Pirates Hitting Prospect Analysis (8/28/2010)

Here is the other part of Pirates prospect analysis that I posted two days ago.  Unfortunately, the hitters don't look nearly as promising as the pitchers.  That being said, a good part of the reason is the graduation of Alvarez, Tabata, and Walker as well as some injuries.  The biggest problem is that we literally have no power.  This list does not include the 2010 draft prospects.  If you have any suggestions for ways to improve the list or players who I have forgotten, please let me know.  I'm going to update both parts of the list when the season is over.  Let's Go Bucs!
