Underrated Prospects

*formerly sportsman885, but registered under NoVaO for SB Nation

Give me your most underrated prospects.  I came up with a list of 6 names.

You can get a better idea of their stuff and pitching/hitting mechanics by clicking here

But below is a summary of guys I view as underrated or overlooked (among top prospects):

Henry Sosa - high risk guy, but he has a great arm and I think he is being overlooked

Jed Lowrie - John made a post a couple months back about Lowrie and basically agree with his take.  If his defense is acceptable, he will be extremely valuable at the top of the Red Sox line-up.

Chase Headley - he is already highly rated, but I think he gets overlooked a lot as well.  Very little weakness in his game.

Jair Jurrjens - worried about his health, but I really do like his stuff and feel his upside is upside leans more toward being a #2 starter than the #4 label some give him.

Austin Jackson - here is a guy that could sky rocket into top 10 status this year

Chris Tillman - the numbers don't look that great, but when you put them in context and see how good his second half was and how much of an extreme hitter's park he pitched in was, and then factor in his age and projectability, I think one can figure out how good a prospect he actually is.
