The Baseball America Prospect Handbook 2008 is available now. In it are the Top 50 prospects of each of the four BA analysts who collarborate on the Top 100 Prospects that fantasy players everywhere use to learn which minor leaguers to keep on eye on during the season.

Here are the Top 5 hitters for each one. Note these are not the top 5 prospects overall for each. Just the hitters. FWIW, the top overall prospect is the one listed first with the exception of John Mauel's top hitters. In that, case Bruce is 2nd overall.
