The Hurley/Volquez/Danks/Diamond quartet is hard to rate; all four have excellent raw talent but all four have some question marks. I basically went with the rankings I used in the Top 50 list in the book.

There are a large number of Grade C prospects in this system that I think are sleepers and could be on the list in the 16-20 range, depending on what you want to emphasize. They include RHP Omar Poveda, RHP John Bannister, OF Brandon Boggs, OF K.C. Herren, RHP Kea Komenani, RHP Doug Mathis, and RHP Matt Nevarez.
