Lutz, Winker, and Rahier all have the potential to be plus bats at the big league level. Rodriguez, Vidal, and Rosa could be above average for 3B in both the hit tool and power. Admittedly though, all of these guys with the exception of Rodriguez are at least a couple years away from being able to contribute at the big league level, and a lot can change between now and then.
Yea, the next 2 to 3 years the AA and AAA look to be heavy in arms. I like this a lot because arms are better trade chips than position players usually.
