LSB Community Prospect Project: #23

In keeping with my promise to eschew the 5% rule once we got out of the top 20 and only do run-offs if the results were really too close to call, Neil Ramirez has won the right to be called the Lonestarball community #22 prospect, winning by a scant 3% after 145 votes.

List so far:

   1. RHP, Eric Hurley
   2. 1b/3b, Chris Davis
   3. SS, Elvis Andrus
   4. LHP, Kasey Kiker
   5. C, Taylor Teagarden
   6. RHP, Michael Main
   7. RHP, Blake Beavan
   8. 2b, German Duran
   9. OF, Engel Beltre
   10. C/DH, Max Ramirez
   11. LHP, Matt Harrison
   12. RHP, Omar Poveda
   13. (TIE) 3b, Johnny Whittleman
   13. (TIE) RHP, Neftali Feliz
   13. (TIE) RHP, Thomas Diamond
   16. OF, John Mayberry, Jr.
   17. RHP, Fabio Castillo
   18. LHP, Zach Phillips
   19. C, Cristian Santana
   20. RHP, Wilmer Font
   21. OF, Julio Borbon
   22. RHP, Neil Ramirez

And now it's on to the vote for the #23 prospect.

Coming onto the list by popular demand is a guy who I'll admit I hadn't even heard of when this process started, OF, Miguel Velazquez. A 19th round pick in 2006 out of high school in Puerto Rico, the 19 year old hit an impressive .330/.381/.489 in 94 AZL AB's last year, and added 7 SB's in 8 attempts. It'll be very interesting to see if he's sent to Clinton to start next season.

Voting is now open, so go ahead and vote in the poll on the right for the player you think should be named the LSB community #23 prospect!
