The Diamondbacks have sent 7 of their Top 11 prospects to AA Mobile for the 2011 season, and the other 4 will be in High Class A Visalia of the Carolina League. Visalia will have #2 LHP Tyler Skaggs, #3 3B Matt Davidson, #4 3B/1B Bobby Borchering, and #6 SS Chris Owings. Other top prospects for Visalia include RHP Chase Anderson (#13), RHP Kevin Munson (#15), and CF Adam Eaton (#25). Skaggs was the key acquisition in the Dan Haren trade last summer, while Davidson and Borchering, both drafted out of high school in 2009, are excellent power hitting prospects. Munson, a relief pitcher, is expected to be on the Fast Track to move quickly through the Minor League system.
Here is the 2011 Visalia Roster:
SP : Chase Anderson, Derek Eitel, Trevor Harden, Tyler Skaggs (L), Eric Smith, Michael Belfiore (Injured)
RP: Cristian Beltre, Victor Capellan, Kevin Munson, Chris Odegaard, Yonata Ortega, Diogenes Rosario, Taylor Sinclair, Adam Worthington
C: Rossmel Perez, Mark Reed
IF: Bobby Borchering, Matt Davidson, Brent Greer, David Nick, Chris Owings, Raoul Torrez
OF: Adam Eaton, Kyle Greene, Justin Hilt, Jon Mark Owings
