Weeks- toolsy 2B...he's been disappointing thus far considering his skillset, but he should bounce back. Will provide a good power/speed combination from 2B.
Olsen- brings the gas from the left side, which is why he's rated so highly. Probably just below the top tier of pitching prospects.
Duke- finesse lefty.
Hardy- limited upside compared to other top prospects, but should be a steady player. He didn't show the greatest bat before his breakout year, so look out for that.
Sizemore- Never gotten the hype with him. They say he has speed, yet it doesn't show up on the stat sheet. He can hit for average..
DeJesus- steady leadoff man, not too high on him for fantasy, though. He'll get runs and a good BA around .300, but he won't steal enough bags to do too much for you.
Kotchman- one of the best pure hitters in the minors, he'll definitely hit for average. We'll see on power. He could do the Olerud/Grace thing and prefer to hit for average, or he could develop 30 homer power down the line. I personally think he'll be above Olerud but below Morneau/Tex in terms of power numbers.

Out of that list, you're right, Kotchman's probably best, but don't forget position scarcity. If Weeks has a good year, he may be a better pick, due to the lack of quality talent at 2B.
