This is from an article about AA this year


Jay Bruce, OF (Chattanooga Lookouts)
Despite playing in the same circuit as heralded prospects like Justin Upton and Cameron Maybin, Bruce was named the best prospect in the Midwest League last year. The 19-year-old former first-rounder hit .291 with 16 homers, a league-leading 42 doubles, 81 RBIs and 19 stolen bases at Dayton. Bruce uses quick hands and a smooth swing to turn on an inside heater and go the other way with an outside pitch, tools that helped him earn MVP honors at the Midwest League All-Star Game. His plate discipline could use some work (106 strikeouts in 444 at-bats), so Cincinnati will send him to Chattanooga.

I thought he was in AAA, and I was shocked. Heard it on the radio the other day, and my jaw literally dropped. But, such is not the case (and fine by me, too.)
