It is kind of funny to me that you have to go all the way down to #13 to find a healthy positional prospect, although I may be ranking Arias too low.

Two guys who are fairly low on the list, but who I think are interesting guys to keep an eye on, are Hulett and Murphy.

Murphy is having a pretty solid year at high-A, and is 22, so it isn't like he's ridiculously old for the level. And Hulett is looking like he could possibly be the poor man's Todd Walker...
