I don't follow minor league action much but I'll occasionally take a peak at their stats. These two stand out. Both are reasonably young and seem to have some upside. But both appear to play positions where we have some depth.

What do the "experts" at Baseball America think of them? Are they highly regarded prospects?

Eldred seems to fall into the AAAA category. Still, he's only 27/28. He's got some of the biggest power in professional baseball. I doubt we'll see him come up.

To me, Getz is a legit prospect. I think he can play a good enough 2B. He can hit to all fields, and has some pop in his bat too. I would like to see him get a shot, but I have a felling he'll ultimately get traded and be a nice player for another team.
