Top Hitting Prospects 2011
Cody Crosby,

Last season was the year of the impact rookie with Jason Heyward, Buster Posey, Mike Stanton, Starlin Castro, Austin Jackson and others staking their claim on big-league rosters.

Many prospects are champing at the bit to break camp with their respective major league club.

Domonic Brown takes the top nod as Philadelphia's toolsy outfielder while Desmond Jennings looks to make an immediate impact with his speed in Tampa.

This season's list contains a few players who are slated to start 2011 with the big league club. Some others will start the season in the minors but will get a look in 2011.

The players below are the highest rated hitters in the minor leagues who look to make a fantasy impact in the near future. Many players will be pushing for a spot in the 2011 season while others are still in the distance.

These rankings are ever-changing and will be updated frequently. Feel free to voice your opinion in the forums or comments below.
