All grades are EXTREMELY PRELIMINARY and subject to change.

  4. Chris Volstad, RHP, Grade B

  10. Gaby Sanchez, 1B, Grade B-
  11. Kyle Winters, RHP, Grade C+ (major sleeper)
  12. Sean West, LHP, Grade C+ (want to see if healthy)
  13. Dallas Trahern, RHP, Grade C+
  14. Scott Cousins, OF, Grade C+
  15. John Raynor, OF, Grade C+
  16. Hector Correa, RHP, Grade C+
  17. Logan Morrison, 1B, Grade C+ (intriguing power prospect)
  18. Burke Badenhop, RHP, Grade C
  19. Steve Cishek, RHP, Grade C
  20. Mike Stanton, OF, Grade C (seems way too raw to me to rank higher)
Other Grade C guys (interchangeable with those above) include Derek Blacksher, Greg Burns, Brett Carroll, Jesus Delgado, Harvey Garcia, Kris Harvey, Kyle Kaminska (a sleeper), Torre Langley, Jai Miller, Bryan Petersen, Garrett Purcell, Jameson Smith, and Graham Taylor.

Lots of Grade B pitchers here. Tucker, Thompson, Volstad, and Hernandez are all guys that I like, don't get me wrong, but each of them has at least one serious questionmark on their profile that keeps them out of the B+ category for me at this time. See if you can guess that those issues are for each of them.

Of course, full statistics and reports on over 1,000 other players will be in the 2008 Baseball Prospect Book, now available for pre-order. Ships the first Monday in February!
