Top 20 A's Position Players

After the trades, the offensive side was left aside, and then we see a very good list of pitching prospects, and a very meh list of position players prospects.

C Derek Norris was the best offensive player we traded for, but he is a Napoli style of offensive catcher, with low AVG, but projecting very decent power and SLG numbers. OF Collin Cowgill seems to be a gap filler in our OF but it doesn't projects to be better than a good 4th OF in the majors.

Now, there is no reason for desparation. Bailey is still on the trading block, with a very favorable market for closers so he could net us some high ceiling, low A prospects, and we have 5 draft picks on the first 2 rounds of the 2012 draft, plus the very good posibility to have a very high draft pick on 2013, so there are still several sources to get the offensive help the farm needs.

In the meantime, I made the list of our top 20 position players prospects. Let's talk about who should be higher, lower, out or in the list.
