ZOBRIST Update - Unappreciated Hitting “Prospects”

In my pre-season’s FG+ article at FanGraphs, I created at a method to help find unappreciated hitting talent in the high minors like Ben Zobrist. I won’t go through the methodology (FG+ is one of the few bargains online at $6 and contains all previous articles and player profiles), but I do have an updated ranking for the 2014 season. I have included the last season the player appreached on Baseball America Top 100 Prospect Ranking.
