Week 11: Minor League Power Rankings

Chip Cannon: Is He The Real Deal?

Every Friday InsideTheDome.com will rank the top 30 Jays' prospects based on their 2005 performance, shedding some insights into their numbers while tracking their prospect stock. This week we see a new face at No. 1 and two new players joining the rankings from short season. Ryan Patterson has jumped into the top 10 in his second week of play and could make his way into the top 5 if he continues hitting this way for the next seven days.

Note: Stats current through Thursday July 07, 2005. This list is not about who are the better players or prospects, but rather who is doing the best based on their stats. You must be under the age of 31 to be considered in this list.
