Futures Game Running Diary: Top 5

Giants outfielder Francisco Peguero leads off. Peguero has some nice tools, but is very crude. He can run and has good bat speed, but only six unintentional walks in over 280 plate appearances isn't going to get anyone's bat to the big leagues. He is 22 already and I think if patience was going to develop, it would have by now.

Dee Gordon continues to look smooth defensively, despite the fact that he only started playing baseball during his senior year in high school, just 3 years ago. Hopefully the Dodger's decision to send him to AA prematurely won't ruin his offensive development. So far, the results haven't been good.
