With the recent call-ups of Hughes and Butler, and impending Lincecum debut, some spectacular early season performances in the low minors are going a bit unnoticed around here. Bruce was in almost everybody's Top 15 last year after his .291/.355/.516 performance at Dayton. Moving up a level into a pitchers' league, you might expect some early season struggles from The Boss. Not the case.
8 2B, 4 3B, 6 HR
Leads FSL in SLG
2nd in OPS
.379/.387/.586 vs. LHP (really his only knock last year)
With graduations and performance thus far, is it time to start talking about Bruce as a top 5 prospect?
