Aaron Cunningham

I wanted to get everyone's thoughts on Aaron Cunningham. As most of you probably know, he went to Oakland in the 6 player return the A's got for Dan Haren. Of the 6 prospects, he and Greg Smith were probably the two least talked about players in the deal. I've been fortunate enough to watch him play a few times over the past couple years, and have been nothing but impressed. In fact, as an A's fan, when I heard Oakland recieved him along with 5 others I was very excited. I think he has been one of the more underrated prospects in recent years. The guy has really done nothing but hit in his minor league career, and has continued that with an impressive stint in AA with Midland this season. Coming off a broken wrist that he suffered right out of spring training, I have the guy at a line of .317/.384/.506 through 83 games. This goes along with a minor league career average of .305, and an .863 OPS. He's not the biggest guy there is, and doesn't have huge power but he looks to have 20-25 HR pop and great bat control sporting high averages all along the way. I have heard him compared to Aaron Rowand, and I have also heard people say he looks like a 4th outfielder. I personally am very excited to see him in Oakland as soon as next season, and want to get people's opinions on what type of player they see him becoming.
