CHRIS YOUNG!!

plays for the AA barons. Only ranks behind Delmon Young in most categories plus he is a burner. Many in the organization compare him to Mike Cameron "with more power". He is a 30-30 guy with defensive skills waiting to happen.

He may or may not be able to leapfrog Sweeney and Anderson but a trade is more likely as the ChiSox will trade some of these prospects away for pitching help down the stretch. If Young is traded away to a team in need of a quality CF, like the Yankees, he could end up getting to the majors mighty quickly.

Don't forget this guy and check out the obscene numbers he is posting with the Barons.

Also, depending on what happens with Johnny Damon in Boston, Jacoby Ellsbury has the tools to be a very good fantasy OF. Actually he reminds many of a young Johnny Damon. Great plate discipline, blazing speed and highlight reel defense. Not too much power but he could end up being a nice Mark Kotsay type CF for a long time.

In Single A Lowell now but could be a fast mover if Damon bolts from Boston this offseason.

30-30 Mike Cameron type is about right for Mr. Young. I do think he has a outside shot at the CF spot in Arizona now with the trade, as he was pretty good this past year in AA but I honestly think he does need another 1/2 or even a whole year in AAA before the callup. But one thing to think about is what does this trade do to Justin Upton with the Dbacks position wise in the future. :-?

Jon Sickles Take:


Toolsy outfielder, hit .277/.377/.545 with 26 homers, 32 steals, 70 walks for Birmingham. Impressive power/speed/patience player. Strikeout rate is high and he may not hit for average. Similar to Mike Cameron perhaps?





While I have heard other scouting reports that put him right behinf Jeremy Hermida and Francoeur

I'm honestly not very up to date with the minor league stuff lately...

But, being a Yankee fan, I'm kinda interested in where you might rank Melky Cabrera on one of these lists. He's young for playing in AAA/the majors for a little bit, and I do know that he's playing fairly well in Winter ball right now.

Is he even the Yanks best centerfield prospect?
