8. Neftali Feliz, RHP, Rangers
9. Buster Posey, C, Giants
10. Madison Bumgarner, LHP, Giants
11. Carlos Santana, C, Indians

19. Dustin Ackley, OF/1B, Mariners
20. Martin Perez, LHP, Rangers
Feliz is expected to break camp in 2010 in Texas' rotation. It might take a while for him to truly arrive as a starter, as was the case for flamethrowers such as Edwin Jackson and A.J. Burnett.
The minors' most polished pitching prospect threw 40-plus innings in the majors and showed impressive secondary stuff and a feel for changing speeds.He already did last year, but in 2010 Matusz will get to play a support role to veteran Kevin Millwood.
The Rays have an outfield spot open presently for 2010, and Jennings should be a big league-ready, inexpensive solution.
The Marlins haven't been shy about promoting prospects aggressively, but Stanton struggled a bit in Double-A last season. If he struggles at first in his first big league action in 2010, don't give up on him.
Unless Atlanta brings in a corner outfielder this offseason, Heyward should hit his way into the lineup in 2010.
Hey sorry sooo long of a reply but I love following the minors/prospects so if you have any questions or looking for an individual player feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org put in subject Minors/Prospects or something like that!
every where i read last year ranked Bumgarner way ahead of Matusz, i know Matusz would be a better option/more MLB ready this year but what makes you guys think that he's higher than Bumgarner as we speak?

Bumgarner lost velocity last year first of all.
Second Matusz is a more advanced and polished prospect. He's more likely to reach his ceiling and he's more likely to get there right away.
One of the less heralded areas of fantasy is managing risk. If you sacrifice a little ceiling (which between future aces isn't that much, especially in H2H) to get more reliability with prospects it can help a lot. Now with one prospect it might be hard to see, but if you are in a league with a deep minor league system and 6 of your 10 guys actually make something out of themselves when all the other teams are at 3 or 4 you have a sustainable competitive advantage.
