Rating last year's rookies-Community Prospect #9

Although far from a consensus pick, garnering just 27% of the vote, Brandon Beachy still manages to get some separation on all of the other candidates and wins round 8 of the voting for top prospect for future performance among last year's rookies.

1.  Brett Lawrie, 3b Toronto Blue Jays (51%)

2,  Eric Hosmer, 1b Kansas City Royals (57%)

3.  Michael Pineda, P Seattle Mariners (38%)

4.  Dustin Ackley, 2b Seattle Mariners (41%)

5. Desmond Jennings, of Tampa Bay Rays (47%)

6. Jeremy Hellickson, P Tampa Bay Rays  (49%)

7. Freddie Freeman, 1B Atlanta Braves (45%)

8. Brandon Beachy, P Atlanta Braves (27%)

The voting breakdown for the eighth round round after Beachy was,  Mike Moustakas 20%, Brandon Belt 18%,: Dominic Brown 16%, Cory Luebke 7% (write in), Paul Goldschmidt  5%, Jason Kipnis 5%, Vance Worley 2% (write in).  0% for Kyle Drabek, Chris Sale, and Salvador Perez 

I'm going to keep everyone on the ballot who got at least 5% of the vote, and also Worley, who only got 2% but who was due to come on the ballot as a tester anyway.  Chris Sale, Kyle Drabek and Salvador Perez go back into rotation. We'll rotate back in Zach Britton, Craig Kimibrel and Danny Espinosa.

In rotation: Wilson Ramos 0% (round 5), Jordan Walden 0% (round 5), Ivan Nova 0% (round 5), Henderson Alvarez 0% (round 6), Aroldis Chapman 0% (round 6), Mark Trumbo 3% (round 7), Jemile Weeks 0% (round 7), Danny Duffy 0% (round7), Chris Sale 0% (round 8), Kyle Drabek 0% (round 8), Salvador Perez 0% (round 8)

As mentioned above, Vance Worley gets his first time on the ballot this round.  This leaves as testers for the upcoming rounds:

Josh Collmenter, Kenley Jansen, Jose Altuve, Lucas Duda, Dayan Viciedo, Juan Nicasio Alex Cobb, JD Martinez and Mike Minor.

As always voting is by +1 and there are places below to suggest testers or vote for players not currently on the ballot.

So who is your number 9 prospect for future performance among last year's rookies?  And, while I've got my own opinions, as I'm only typically getting 1 new testers in a round at this point, if in the tester section below  you could also say which 1 to 3 of the testers we've identified you want on the ballot next that would be a big help.
