I'm not going to list anyone below AA, cause I think all need to improve more before they are a Top 5 hitter in the minors.

- Delmon Young
- Alex Gordon (not in AA technically, but will be)
- Billy Butler
- Howie Kendrick
- Barton/Milledge/Drew

Ok I cheated and put 7, but I felt all of them needed to be listed.

I've got to agree with these, just a few comments.....

- Delmon Young - is going to be in TB opening day
- Alex Gordon (not in AA technically, but will be) - if Teahan doesn't improve quickly, he'll be in KC by August
- Billy Butler - maybe the best pure hitter of the bunch, but no position
- Howie Kendrick - great contact hitter, I think last years power was an abberation....we'll see....
- Barton/Milledge/Drew - I'm not totally sold on Milledge, but the other two will be very good major league hitters. Too bad Barton couldn't hang at C, not as exciting at 1B.

Nope, Guzman is pretty raw as a hitter and doesn't stack up with the others listed. He has the potential to be ahead of maybe 1 or 2 listed, but that's just potential. Stewart is good and may end up being a Top 5 after this year, but like I said I only listed guy AA or higher and Stewart needs to prove he can come back after a rockie year.
