Minor League Ball's John Sickels is back from a scouting trip in Arizona and has a new article up here, and here is what he had to say about Giants first base prospect Brandon Belt:

Brandon Belt, 1B, Giants: Hitting .365/.414/.571 in Arizona. I think he's completely legitimate...he's surprisingly fast and agile for a big player, and his swing is totally reworked since he was in college. Likely getting a Grade A- for me, and possibly the best first base prospect not named Hosmer.

Head on over what he had to say about Bryce HarperDustin Ackley, Manny Banuelos and others over at Minor League Ball.

Kevin Goldstein, from Baseball Prospectus, published his Top 11 Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, and here is what he said about Michael Pineda's fantasy outlook:

Fantasy Impact: He could do it allstrikeouts, a low walk rate to keep the WHIP down, and an ERA helped by pitching in Seattle.

Pineda went 11-4 with a 3.36 ERA and 1.112 WHIP with a 154-34 K/BB ratio in 139.1 innings at two levels in 2010. Pineda could get a call as early as April 2011.
