Prospect Hot Sheet

New, comments

I just noticed this update from last week at Baseball America, which lists Rickie Weeks at #1 and Prince Fielder at #8.  Two hot bats = many happy Brewers fans:

If you downgraded Weeks from "potential superstar" to "potential solid player" after last year's .259-8-42 showing at Double-A Huntsville, it's time to re-evaluate. Weeks needed just 46 this year to match his 2004 RBI total, and is 8-for-19 with three doubles, three home runs and nine RBIs in five games since a two-day break to attend his brother's graduation.

Fielder hit three home runs in his first 44 games this season, but has exploded for seven home runs and 16 RBIs in his last eight contests. The future right side of the infield in Milwaukee is looking mighty good from here.

Yes, it's only AAA, but I'd imagine a streaking Prince Fielder is an awfully scary batter to face.
