Telvin Nash (43 votes) is pulling ahead of Kody Hinze (36 votes) in a 2-way race for the Astros’ best 1B prospect. At 2B, Jose Altuve (57 votes) is running away from the field (Delino DeShields, Jr. is in second with 6 votes). Today’s vote may be closer, I suspect.
Brandon Wikoff (23) – this steady performer has only 4 errors and a .765 OPS at AA. He has more walks (23) than strikeouts (16), but only 1 HR and 4 SB.
Jonathan Villar (20) – after 13 errors, 4 HR, 20 SB, and a .767 OPS at high A Lancaster, Villar has made 11 errors, with 3 HR, 6 SB, and a .595 OPS at Corpus.
Jiovanni Mier (20) – he has followed 10 errors, 5 HR, 6 SB, and a .734 OPS at Lexington with 7 errors, 0 HR, 0 SB, and a .578 OPS after a recent call-up to Lancaster.
Jose Fernandez (18) – this year he has 8 errors, 0 HR, 3 SB, and a .727 OPS for the Rookie League GCL Astros.
Juan Santana (16) – 19 errors, 2 HR, 5 SB, and a .720 OPS in the Dominican League.
There are no specific criteria in this voting for what makes the best prospect, so vote however you want to. You can always explain your choice in the comments.
Voting (after the jump) ends Monday evening at 10 PM, central time.
