* Fernando Perez is, as I speculated, injured. His left shoulder, which was operated on in the off-season for a "slap tear" in his labrum, has begun bothering him again. Swinging a bat is very difficult for him, although he can play the outfield (he throws right-handed) and did so as a late-inning defensive replacement in both games last night. He probably isn't going to the disabled list, but needs to rest the shoulder and do a little physical therapy to strengthen the muscles around it.

Interpret it how you wish. Keep in mind they plan on doing a future poll for top prospects by position. This is more performance base, but age and level should certainly be considered.
