Halos Heaven Community Prospect Rankings: Who's #8?

1) Mike Trout - The clear number one.

2) Peter Bourjos - Speed, athleticism and defense. Be patient with the bat.

3) Hank Conger - On track to be a solid all-around player and potential allstar at a premium position.

4) Trevor Reckling - Sure he hit a wall in AAA, but the guy's only been able to (legally) drown his sorrows for a couple of months and he's still competently getting AA hitters out.

5) Mark Trumbo - Chicks and Angels fans dig the long ball. Is his 2010 progress for real? The wisdom of crowds (and his K/BB ratio) says it is.

6) Tyler Chatwood - His fastball/curveball combo carved up California League hitters, and are getting the job done in AA. He's come as far this season as any prospect not named Trout.

7) Garrett Richards - He's all about upside, owning four potentially plus pitches with solid control. Will the command follow?

8) ???

So will it be Alexia Amarista, defensive whiz and little giant with the bat? Fabio Martinez Mesa, who could get major leaguers out right now with his overpowering fastball/slider combo, if he only knew where each pitch was going? Randal Grichuk, who's back to bashing homeruns in the Midwest League? Jean Segura, who stole his 40th base of the season last week? Or Mike Kohn, who will most likely still have prospect status at the end of 2010?
