Most Underrated Prospect?

This is pretty self-explanitory...

Name a position player and a pitching prospect you feel are the most underrated in the minors and give supporting stats, arguments and/or scouting reports if possible.

No players with major league experience of any kind are eligible and no 2006 draftees.

I'll start if off with a pitcher for an example....

SP Will Inman/19/Low-A/Milwaukee Brewers

He's virtually never talked about among top young pitching prospects, but has dominated the low minors.

2005:Rookie-Pioneer/2.00 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, 45 IP, 58K/11BB, 5.80 H/9, 2.20 BB/9, 11.6 K/9
2006:A-SAL/1.23 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, 66 IP, 79K/15BB, 6.41 H/9, 2.04 BB/9, 10.77 K/9

Inman was a 3rd round pick in the 2005 draft out of HS in Virginia, where he set the state's all-time strikeout record. He currently sits at 91-92MPH on his fastball, which is considered a plus pitch with great late movement. His curve is his "out" pitch and is already considered plus with somewhat of a slurvy action.
