Angels #1 Prospect?

It's a bit early to call this, maybe, but we might have a new #1 prospect after this year.  Here are the numbers from 2008 so far, and what they project to based on 575 AB at SLC. 

AAA - SLC AB R RBI HR SB AVG
2008 131 36 27 12 3 .305
Proj Full Season 575 158 119 53 13 .305

Want to take a guess who that is?

No, it's not Brandon Wood.  It's our very own 23-year-old Sean Rodriguez.  Think it's kind of fluky?  Clearly he had a poor 2007, but go back and check out his 2006 MILB stats.  He may not have 40-50 HR power, but the 30 HR potential is there with a decent average.  He has also reduced his K rate from 26% of the time in 2007 to only 17% in 2008. 

Towards the end of his time in the majors before Figgy and Howie came back he started showing signs of coming to life.  While he's primarily played 2B this year in the majors and minors, in 2006 and 2007 he spent most of his time at SS.  While Aybar is working to become our everyday SS, if S-Rod keeps this up, he might force the organizations hand in 2009 or 2010!
