That's like being the 9th tallest midget. MI either need to be able to play SS to some extent or be uber bats who could survive in a corner. Most big league 2B start out as a SS at least in the minors. Guys who are strictly 2B are at a big disadvantage. IMO, Wright would need to have some outsatnding tool to be in the top 20. He's not a big power or speed guy, he has an OK average, but .280 with moderate power, average speed and meh defense in the low minors makes you a fringe guy at best in the big leagues.
Every once in a while, a guy like Marco Scutaro will defy the odds, but they usually aren't high on the prospect lists when it happens.
