This looked like a good idea (from the Sleeth topic), so I thought I'd do the same for Ian Stewart. The first thing I found:

1. Ian Stewart, 3b, Casper Rockies

Managers loved every aspect of Stewart's game. A high school player drafted 10th overall in June, he made a seamless move into the professional ranks, particularly with the bat. He attracted raves for his aggressiveness at the plate, while others appreciated the way he was into every pitch at third base.

"He's a Jim Thome type," Kotchman said. "He drives the ball the other way to left-center field, and he can hit the ball over the right-field lights."

Stewart may not be a Gold Glove candidate at third but should be able to handle either corner infield position. Carey said Stewart's work ethic could allow him to be an above-average defender.

"He not only met expectations, he's exceeded them," Carey said. "And what I love about him is that the expectations he has for himself are higher than anyone else's."

TEAM G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB SO SB AVG OBP SLG
Casper 57 224 40 71 14 5 10 43 29 54 4 .317 .401 .558




He is rated as the top prospect in the Pioneer league based strictly on ability. Assuming that he isn't traded, a Jim Thome type could do well in Denver.

Thanks for doing this. ;-D

This should come in handy as I've got Stewart, in one of my minor league keepers. :-)

Last year he hit .317, with 10 homers and a .401 on-base percentage for the Casper Rockies.

So far this year (with the Ashville Tourists) he's hitting .289 with 14 home runs and has stolen 9 bases. In 239 at-bats. His k/bb ratio is still high, at 61/29, but it's not that high for a guy his age.

So, basically he's moved up to A-ball, he's improving his power even while moving out of Colorado, and he is still only 19. I wonder if we won't see him in the majors late next year.
