Down On The Farm: Baseball America's Top 10 AFL Prospects

A few days ago, Baseball America published their Top 10 Arizona Fall League prospect list, headed by Nationals outfield prospect Bryce Harper.
Here is the rest of the top 10:

2. Dustin Ackley, SEA-was named MVP in the AFL

3. Eric Hosmer, KC

4. Brandon Belt, SFG

5. Mike Montgomery, KC

6. Manny Banuelos, NYY

7. Derek Norris, WAS

8. Casey Kelly, BOS

9. Devin Mesoraco, CIN

10. Jason Kipnis, CLE

Here is an excerpt from BA's writeup on Giants first base prospect Brandon Belt:

Belt's surprising performance in his first pro season continued in the AFL as the lefthanded hitter batted a solid .372/.427/.616 for the champion Scottsdale Scorpions. He showed impressive power to all fields and plus defense.....Belt, 22, likely will return to Triple-A, where he finished 2010 after starting the season in the California League. He's the Giants first baseman of the future.
