Howard's power could be Major League ready next year. The only question is with which team with Jim Thome blocking his path in Philly.

48 Alberto Callaspo, SS, Angels (23)

2004 stats: .288 BA/ .341 OBP/ .383 SLG

The 21-year-old skipped over High-A ball and finished Double-A with a flourish, hitting .327 in August. A competition with Aybar in the future will be fun to watch.

Sleeth has found the Eastern League to be challenging, but reacing Double-A in his first full season is quite an accomplishment.

As one scout put it, he is the Expos system. Everts really started putting it together this year.

Those numbers are no fluke. He's been so impressive, the Twins called him up on Aug. 31 so he can be eligible for the postseason roster.

A bad shoulder allowed him to make just seven starts before he went to Athens for the Olympics. If healthy, he'll get a shot next spring.

Three levels, and he got better at each one. With more than a strikeout an inning across the board, he could be ready for Atlanta next year.

So he's learned that the Cal League is hard. He still dominated the Midwest League, earned a promotion and a trip to the Futures Game in his first full season.
