2011-08-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospect in the minors do you see taking the biggest leap in the minds of prospect rankers in the next 365 days..
(Matt from NYC)
I think Hak-Ju Lee was that guy if you look at pre-season to mid-season. Looking at mid-season 2011 to mid-season 2012, um, err, um, a flier on Chih-Hsien Chiang with Seattle who proves that 2011 isn't a fluke. (Jason Collette)
