There are a couple of spots that I took liberty with (I figured Geiger's performance granted him Villanueva's spot at 3B in Daytona, so I just moved Villanueva up to AA even though he only had 25 games in A ball last year).

One thing that I would like to point out (that gets me amp'd) is that Jorge Soler has only struck out 19 times in 149 PA. That, is awesome.

Villanueva I am excited about, Szczur (however you spell it, not sure if I spelled that right) needs to make the leap and show why he is our #6 prospect.

I'm not sure whose prospect rankings you're using, but they look like they're in the ballpark.

Over all, not bad. I disagree in a couple of areas, but this is pretty close.

Iowa -

Defensively, Ha is the better center fielder. I'd not be surprised to see him take at least half the starts in center. If Iowa is in contention, he'll probably take the lions share. Jackson's defense is arguably plus-plus for right.

Bour should be in Iowa.

Rohan will probably be part of an infield/outfield mix, if he doesn't break camp with the Cubs. Don't rule him out as the power bat for corner IF/OF off the bench out of spring training. He's a long shot, but I think he has a real shot at it.


Tennessee -

Arismendy Alcantara should be at short full time, or splinting time between short and second.

Burgess is out of the system. He was taken in the Rule 5 draft.

If Bour doesn't go to Iowa, he will be starting at first in Tennessee. I think he goes to Iowa, though, so I'm not sure who fills this slot. Could be Michael Brenly, to be honest.

I don't see Harrington sticking in Double A for a full season. Not yet.

I'm not sure about Chavez in right either.


Daytona -

Alcantara shouldn't be there.

Vogelbach is a long shot to hit Daytona out of spring training. I would be surprised if he does not go to Kane County.

Soler has a real shot at Daytona. Could go there, or back to KC. Either way, I think he ends the year in Tennessee (possibly with Baez).

2B in Daytona is going to be a tough battle. Saunders is one option (although I the he heads to KC), but I think the front runner is Zeke DeVoss.

Got to find room somewhere for Taiwan Easterling and Evan Crawford. Either could be in Daytona (more likely Crawford).

Hernandez is likely to be the everyday shortstop in Kane County. If he isn't, KC fans could get an early look at Penalver, but I don't think Penalver will be ready for that big of a jump yet.

OK, thanks. I forgot about Burgess getting picked up Rule 5. I used the MLB.com (top 20 prospects per team) ratings. I've gotta say that though, (even removing the hype) I think Vogelbach is a better option in Daytona than Hoilman or Cuneo.
