He has performed so-so for a prospect the last couple of years but reports are that he lost around 30 lbs before last season so that could explain his breakout. It's also led some to believe that he can stick at 3B for awhile (let's say 5 yrs) since he's not a great defender.
Freese was 24 in A+ in 2007 and 25/26 in AAA the last two years. To an extent he's supposed to perform well and he almost needs to stick as an MLB'er this season to avoid the dreaded AAAA player label. He's a lot like Valencia from MN in that respect. I see the probable upside from both of these guys as .775 OPS players in the majors. His avg will also almost for sure come down to the .270-.280 range since he's had BAPIP's of .385+ the last two years in AAA.
I finally fixed the rankings.

So, after using scouting reports and stats to do my original rankings, i realized that the reason my previous rankings were so much better was due to the fact that i went through the painstaking process of mock drafting every single pick until i was done with the top 50. After doing this, I think you're going to like the results a lot better, and they happen to agree with many of your opinions a lot more. Though i certainly didn't change any picks due specifically what anyone said (aside from Jordan Lyles- still pissed about missing him), I defintely took it into consideration when redoing the rankings.
