Well I'll throw out some names that are lesser known from the 2004 MLB Draft, that are all in the Midwest League (Low A).

Matt Tuiasosopo - SS, though he could be moved to 3B later on - yep, he is the more known QB's brother. 3rd rd pick mainly due to him being a two way sports star and nobody knowing which he would choose, but the M's took a chance. Now he is making a name for himself, hitting .472 in his first 9 games w/ a 3BB/4K ratio.

Reid Brignac - same thing I said for Tui on his position - 2nd rd Rays pick, though he wasn't viewed as high by other teams ... TB was real high on him. So far he is showing a very polished approach at the plate with 9BB's in 12 games, also is hitting .326.

Eric Hurley - SP - The very last player taken in the 1st rd, was selected by the Rangers. He has a mid 90's FB/slider combination that so far is looking great. In his first 3 starts his era is 1.06, he has a whip under 1, and has K'd 19 in 17 innings.

Eric Patterson 2B- he has 18 hits in his last 24 at bats to go along with 10 steals. He is in Low A for the Cubs, but will probably be called up to High A ball by mid-season if he keeps performing well. He played 3 years at Georgia Tech and is a legitimate prospect.

Also, keep an eye on Ryan Harvey for the same team. He started off very slowly then hit 3 HR's in one game, 2 of which went about 425-450 feet and the other was an opposite field home run. Harvey went 5th overall in the 2003 draft, but the Cubs have been taking there time with him.

Also, Chuck Tiffany is off to a very good start for the Dodgers. He may have been known to many before this year, but he could shoot up the charts this year.

not that I agree, but one of the columnists on Sportsline is calling KC's Billy Butler the next Miguel Cabrera.
