Rk   Player   Pos   Comments   Age   Org   Lvl
1   Stephen Strasburg   RHP   His CH is outstanding -- has movement & deception; the FB and CB are plus, too   21.7   WAS   NCAA
2   Buster Posey   C   Tired legs slowed him down in the AFL; solid defender with good all-around bat   23.0   SF   MLB
3   Dustin Ackley   CF/LF   Not going to be big HR hitter, but his D will be plus and he's a line-drive machine 22.1   SEA   NCAA
4   Yonder Alonso   1B   His bat may be the best on this list; doesn't offer speed or much defensive value   22.7   CIN   AA
5   Josh Bell   3B   Strong defender has patience at the plate and above-average power; ave. runner   23.4   BAL   AA
Honorable Mentions: Domonic Brown, Starlin Castro, Mike Leake, Jenrry Mejia, Thomas Neal and Jose Tabata.
