Sean Rodriguez: Best Angels Prospect Performance #3

3) Sean Rodriguez, 24 - 2B, OF, SS, AAA

.299/.400/.616 with 29 HRs and 9 SBs. +36 bat, -2 glove

Rodriguez has ranked among the Angels' top ten minor league performers every year going back to 2005, and in the top five three times. He's the only Halos' farmhand to do that, avoiding major injuries, prolonged slumps, or even bouts of just average performance. That's astounding, and it wouldn't surprise me if the 23.8 "wins above replacement" that he accumulated over that 5 year period surpassed that of every other minor leaguer. I think he's going to find a niche for himself in Tampa and grow into an everyday player for them, most likely at second base.  

Again, remember that this list is based entirely on statistical performance in 2009, and is not a traditional "best prospects" ranking.
