Minor League Update: Wednesday

ANAHEIM CA - JULY 11: U.S. Futures All-Star Mike Trout #20 of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at bat during the 2010 XM All-Star Futures Game at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on July 11 2010 in Anaheim California. (Photo by Stephen Dunn/Getty Images)

I am starting to see what all the buzz is about with Mike Trout - yes, I know, late to the party I am...  he is extremely young and performing exceptionally at the lower levels.  What I am waiting for is to see that type of production at AA - then I will get pretty excited.  Wil Myers will be shooting up the prospect lists as well.  He is hitting nearly .400 for the year.  As with many big bats that are at the catcher position, there are questions about the defense and if a position change is in the works somewhere down the line - I think he will be a catcher for about one more year before they start working him at some other positions.  Eric Hosmer keeps hitting AA ball.  In A+ ball he hit for a high average and had lots o' doubles in a good pitchers park/league.  Now out of that stadium he is crushing the ball - he probably finally lands somewhere in between with his MLB outlook however.  I'm not sure there is a better minor league pitcher than Julio Teheran.  The Braves have tried to challenge him all year by moving him agressively through the minor league system - he is at his 3rd level this year - all the way up to AA as a 19 year old.  We often see 20 and 21 year old players described as very young for the AA level.  I think he starts 2011 as a top 10 prospect and will destroy AA for a couple months before an eventual promotion to AAA or the Majors.
