Base theft threat #2 - Michael Chang
Speedy OF looks to repeat his high-OBP and base-stealing to move up the prospect ladder
And with that, we're down to the last spot on the list. Theo "Huxta" Bowe barely edged out Neftali Soto for the penultimate spot on the list. The 22-year-old outfielder stole 70 bases last year--a feat overshadowed by Billy Hamilton's record-breaking mark--and managed an almost-.400 OBP over 96 games in Bakersfield. He's a little guy, listed at a generous 5'9", but he wouldn't be the first successful short guy to play in the majors if he makes it. He'll probably start the year in Bakersfield again, moving up to Pensacola as rosters shift, though there's a chance he could start at AA. Last chance to vote!
