Alex Castellanos, 2B, Dodgers (Triple-A Albuquerque): 3-for-5, 2B, 3B, HR (2), 4 R, 3 RBI, 2 SB.

Castellanos was barely on the prospect radar heading into the 2011 season, but he was in the midst of a breakout year at Double-A Springfield, batting .319/.379/.562 in 93 games, which made him a key component in the deal to acquire Rafael Furcal from the Dodgers. He kept on hitting after the trade, and while Albuquerque certainly helps his numbers, a .364/.462/.745 line after 13 games is impressive anywhere, and more importantly, his return to second base from the outfield has been a surprising success with scouts seeing him as potentially average there.
