    BA & BP Positional Rankings

    Don't have subscriptions to either.

    But from what I've heard, according to both sources Matt Antonelli is the top 2B prospect in the minors.
    From BP:

    (On 7/26/07)

    1. Matt Antonelli, Padres
    Age: 22.3
    Hitting: .314/.409/.499 at High-A (82 G); .409/.519/.659 at Double-A (12 G)

    The first-round pick of the Padres in last year's draft, Antonelli went homerless in his pro debut, and far too quickly got a rep as a singles hitter with on-base skills and decent speed. One year later, he’s the top prospect in the minors at the position, but that's because Antonelli can hit, has shown very real power potential, and is suddenly looking like the kind of player who could put up 20-20 seasons with near-.400 on-base percentages. That’s all-star territory, and nobody else on the list has shown that kind of potential.

    Edit: Antonelli's up-to-the-minute numbers as of 8/8/07: .357/.466/.607 in 84 ABs at AA
    .....

    It's almost like I was looking into a crystal ball 14 months ago.
