Sadly, it looks like Brown may be in the same category now as Peguero. Talk about a prospect falling off.

Peguero will be back.
I don't know if you know this, but I have no control over how well a player does.

Dude has a canon and is a decent defender. He has a bigger upside than Torres/Blanco thats for sure.

Any news on The Gary Brown?

Lots of people have bigger upside than Torres/Blanco. BFD. Not like that is a ringing endorsement. As for having a cannon.... not really all that important for a left fielder to have a great arm. Bonds certainly never did but he was accurate and that was the key.

Peguero is still young and he may be a decent 4th or 5th OF someday. Not now though. He isnt close to being ready as a major league hitter.

All we will have to wait and see.

I'd love to see Pill start mashing though. Stick him in LF.
One thing our farm system and FA has created, and whole bunch of average LFs. Not one very good one on the team, and none in the farm system. But we can win with Blanco/Torres/Pill if Boch keeps getting the best out of them. Personally I would rather we just play Blanco everyday and pop Pill in there occasionally. Torres is the same thing as Blanco, only less explosive.

I'd rather have Peguero than Torres. Would not be surprised by July that Torres is gone and Peguero is up. Assuming Pill at least is doing SOME work.

I still believe that Roger Kieshnick is the best corner OF in the system. Injuries have really slowed his progress but if he can get through 2013 with a big year and injury free he could have a good shot at many an impact in 2014. You are right though about the lack of any great LFs in the system. Hell, you can say lack of any great hitting prospects period in the system. The cupboard is bare right now.

And I don't even think that's a discussion at this point. I'm sure he's going to get called up at some point this year and get a look if he's doesn't get injured somehow. Gary Brown had a pretty decent game yesterday and all signs point to him back on an upward trend (.326/.367/.457/ through his last 10 games). Nothing awe-inspiring considering his age though.

I dont think we have any super stars coming up as far as OFs go.

but I think we have several guys that can be decent, good pro ball players. Not everyone has to be great. Just pretty decent.

I know I am excited now knowing that we have "pretty decent" players in our organization. Quit tainting this thread everyday. LOL Couldnt resist.

Agreed about Kieschnick. Very solid year so far and barring injury, we'll definitely see him this year (September being the worse case). I also think Juan Perez is an underrated prospect as a potential LF/utility guy. Switch hitter who can steal double-digit bags, has a little pop, can play all 3 OF positions and even play 3rd. Had a very good 2012 in the tough Eastern League (repeated) and is putting up very respectable numbers in his first year at AAA. He's about a year away and needs to cut down on his K's, but a very intriguing/under-the-radar prospect.
