Minor League HR Leaders

The Florida Marlins signed Dallas MacPherson this past off-season after the Los Angeles Angels released him.  He was a hot sleeper prospect for 3B in NL-Only leagues only to be sent to AAA and watch Jorge Cantu take his place.

So far with Albuquerque in the Pacific Coast League, he has hit 39 HRs to lead all minor leaguers.  He is closely followed by another 4A hitter Nelson Cruz of Texas.  While the HRs totals are gaudy enough to cause fantasy players to grab either player if they are recalled, those fantasy players in deep keeper leagues should be more focused on the younger prospects on the HR leader board.

The most notable ones are 21-year-old Chris Carter of the Oakland A's, 20-year-old Greg Halman of the Seattle Mariners and 18-year-old Mike Stanton of the Florida Marlins.  All three are young enough to be legitimate prospects and offer a combination of skills that bear watching.

Here are the HR leaders in the minor leagues and other "relevent" stats to help you decide who the legit power prospects are.
