Power Hitting Prospects

We all know the major top power hitting prospects since they are talked about everywhere. But every year there are a few guys who hit for power while playing at a decent level for their age that don't get much attention. A couple of years in a row like that and suddenly they are a "surprise" prospect that nobody saw coming but the statheads.

So let's look at a few from the low minors who are having good power seasons this year and anyone who knows something about these guys please add info. Note: I've left out any Cal League guys because the numbers are obviously skewed there more than even in the recent years.
