Wieters Pro Debut in HWBL

The Hawaiian Winter Baseball League announced that Matt Wieters will follow in the footsteps of Joba Chamberlain and Ian Kennedy and make his pro debut in the HWBL.  I'll try to link this:

Other former first round draft choices assigned to this year's league include Ryan Harvey, Brandon Snyder and Daniel Bard.

There are several sons of former MLB players coming this year too:

Jared Lansford
Chad Tracy
Cale Iorg
Chris Johnson
Steve Johnson
Justin Sellers

Of course, the big news from last year's HWBL season was the debuts and subsequent fasttracking of Joba Chamberlain and Ian Kennedy.  Other HWBL alumni currently on MLB rosters include Rick Vandenhurk, Nate Schierholtz, Joe Hatcher, Nyler Morgan and Jeff Clement.

Has the HWBL already become a more interesting league for prospect watchers than the AFL?  Any chance David Price makes his debut there this fall?
