2008 Minor League Leaders: Hitting Stats
Cody Crosby, FantasyJuice.com

If you are a stat freak like me then I know how much you like to spend your offseason and pre-season looking at statistics.

Below is a compiled list of the top 10 players at each 5x5 hitting stat in the minor leagues last season. A player must have had a least 150 plate appearances and advanced about Rookie ball.

Many players, like Nelson Cruz and Elvis Andrus, should be on your radar during your fantasy draft since they are expected to be in the big leagues coming out of spring.

Other players, like Kyle Blanks and Ian Gac, could advance quickly through the minor league system so keep an eye on them during the season.
