If Prince Fielder can control his weight (listed as 220 in Beloit Brewers program this past summer, but closer to 260), he will be in Milwaukee in probably two years. He is a powerful man who proved he can hit around .300 too. If he can keep from ballooning out, he will outdo his dad in the bigs.
Another Milwaukee prospect, Anthony Gwynn, Tony's son, will be a solid big leauge outfielder too. The second-rounder this year was Prince Fielder's teammate in Beloit this season. He will be playing alongside Prince in 2-3 years in Milwaukee.
Angel Guzman, SP, Chicago Cubs.
Just what the Cubbies need, another guy who can zip it up there in the upper 90s. And he's only 20 years old. He is a raw talent. Once he gains some experience, he'll join Wood, Prior, Zambrano and Cruz in the 2005 or 2006 starting rotation.
Grady Sizemore, OF, Cleveland
Was the MVP of the future stars game this summer and is on the USA Olympic qualifying team. Played in Double-A this year and hit well over .300. Will be in Cleveland possibly by the end of the 2004 season.
Nathan Panther, OF, Cleveland.
Another Cleveland farm hand who played for a Lake County team in Class A ball this year that won 93 games. The 19-year old lefty is a five-tool player who hit 15 home runs and stole 39 bases this year while make the South Atlantic All-Star team. He was an 18th round selection in the 2002 amateur draft, but mark my words, he will replace Milton Bradley in the Indians' outfield and as their leadoff hitter by the 2005 or 2006 season!!!!!!!
