Hello and welcome to day two of our community prospect ranking project. Yesterday we kicked things off with the vote for the Brewers Number 1 prospect. Your choice was Orlando Arcia. We'll continue today with five candidates for the Number 2 spot. I've added Gilbert Lara to the poll.

In an effort to not influence anyone, I'll be listing the prospects alphabetically by their last name. But first I have some prospect lists to link for you to check out if you want to find more information on each prospect. Let me know in the comments if there's a list I missed that you think is worth including.
