We've now got less than a dozen prospects left on the list. On to numbers 10-6.
10. Jeff Malm: 1B -- Hudson Valley Renegades (Rays)
Malm might have the most power in the entire league, but he's all bat. He isn't that athletic and doesn't play a good 1B, but the bat is for real and he even has offensive upside. Malm leads the league in home runs but all of them are pulled. He's all-or-nothing, but he's still young and has time to refine his approach and hitting mechanics.
9. Aaron Shipman: OF -- Vermont Lake Monsters (Athletics)
Shipman is really conserative at the plate and knows how to take the pitches he shouldn't swing at. He has some of the best speed in the league and it shows when he's on the bases or in the outfield. He doesn't strike out too often, but on the same token doesn't drive the ball as much as the A's would like.
8. Aaron Altherr: OF -- Williamsport Crosscutters (Phillies)
Altherr continues to project as that toolsy, raw outfielder who everyone expects to fill out and become a star. I'm not as much of a fan as I was earlier in the year, or even before the season started but I still see the potential. Altherr is very streaky but shows glimpses of stardom at the plate. He has excellent speed and projects to be plus defensively in the outfield. Like any prospect, Altherr has lots of questions at the plate but he's made some progression since returning from Lakewood.
7. Stetson Allie: RHP -- State College Spikes (Pirates)
Nowadays, most relief prospects get slotted in to the rotation first for the organization to see if they can at least attempt to stick as a starter. Allie falls under that category and things haven't been too swell for him this season doing just that. He still projects to be either a fantastic starting pitcher or an even better relief pitcher, but now it's looking more like the latter. He's lost some velocity this year and has gotten hit around pretty well. I'd like to see the Pirates stick Allie in the pen.
6. Angelo Gumbs: INF -- Staten Island Yankees (Yankees)
Gumbs has become a really, really exciting prospect for the Yankees. And if I'm compiling the Yanks top 10 or 15 prospects, I might even have him in the top half. Gumbs as an 18-year old second baseman might have the second most raw-power in the league, believe it or not. He can hit and drive the ball to all fields and more often than not slug it out. He has plus speed, which has promted some to think he may even be a center-fielder in the longrun. That would definitely boost his stock. I personally see him as a power hitting second baseman who's solid all around, and seeing what he can do this season hasn't changed my opinion one bit.
