Triple A Hitters To Watch

Who's rocking Triple A these days? Let's take a look.  These guys could have a fantasy impact within the next few months.  I am going to pass on the Quad-A types, though.

  • Jeff Larish, 1B, DET: .293/.389/.622 with 14 HR in 164 ABs.  Baseball America loves his raw power and ranked him sixth among Tigers prospects.  It's not impossible to imagine injuries or ineffectiveness opening a door for Larish somehow. Of course, he's currently blocked by Miguel Cabrera.
  • Jay Bruce, OF, CIN: .363/.392/.669 with 10 HR and 8 SBs in 160 ABs.  The Reds outfielder needs no introduction.  His debut should come in June, but who knows whether he'll mash from the get-go.
  • Mike Hollimon, 2B, DET:  .259/.355/.657 with 11 HR in 108 ABs.  If Placido Polanco goes down, Hollimon could come up and display some power.
  • Ian Stewart, 3B, COL: .289/.384/.645 with 12 HR in 152 ABs.  A Garrett Atkins trade would create an opening for Stewart.
  • Mike Aviles, 2B, KCA: .345/.372/.638 with 7 HR in 174 ABs.  Baseball America sees him as an offensive-minded 2B, though he's behind Alberto Callaspo and Mark Grudzielanek on the depth chart.
  • Dallas McPherson, 3B, FLA: .284/.388/.590 with 12 HR in 134 ABs.  OK, so McPherson isn't a prospect anymore.  And Jorge Cantu playing tolerably in Florida.  But Dallas may still have that 30 HR power so keep an eye on him.  Maybe the Giants will acquire him.
