Rotoworld via David O'Brien (Atlanta-Journal Constitution) agrees with you...http://www.rotoworld.com/content/player ... LB&id=4586
Couple sleeper prospects have been recalled recently:Peter Bourjos
has nice sleeper prospect potential. He has 13 HR/27 SB this yr in AAA...could be a poor man's Desmond Jennings, and with Torii moving to RF for the kid, he should get a lot of playing time.John Mayberry
was also called up to replace Ryan Howard who went on the DL. While he has shown some potential, he is already 27, so a bit old for a prospect and does not hit for avg but shows good pop in the minors. It will be interesting to see how much playing time he gets between Ibanez, Brown, Werth, and Francisco. Unless he lights the world on fire, he'll probably be back down once Victorino or Howard come back.Kila Ka'aihue
is also up but the Royals again refuse to give him playing time over Jose Guillen at DH or Billy Butler at 1b. As many of us know, if Kila wants a shot they need to either trade Guillen to free up the DH spot for Butler/Kila or move Guillen back to RF and so far neither of which has happened for the prospect with monster power.
has the highest ceiling on this list along with Freeman, and he has been playing everyday in LF, hitting in the 2nd spot in the order. He has big power potential in his bat, but it has not arrived yet. He could hit 10 HR the rest of the way, or he could hit 0, but he is a nice flyer at this point.
