Prince makes AFL all-prospect team

It’s been a good couple of weeks for Brewers prospect Josh Prince, who was added to the team’s 40-man roster on Dec. Nov. 20 and Monday was named to the Arizona Fall League’s all-prospect team, as selected by the league’s managers and coaches.

Some highlights of Prince’s AFL stint, from that league:

Led the league in hits with 36 … second in the loop in batting (.404), total bases (51), and runs scored (23) … tied for second with 10 stolen bases … third in on-base percentage (.491) … reached base in 12 straight games from 10/10-27 … 11 multi-hit games … three hits at Salt River on 11/1, vs. Mesa on 10/27, at Surprise on 10/23 and vs. Peoria on 10/20 … four hits vs. Peoria on 10/12 … three RBI vs. Peoria on 10/20.

Prince, a third-round Draft pick in 2009 who just converted from shortstop this year, was not considered a top prospect until his stellar AFL results. Now he’s squarely on the Brewers’ organizational map.

good for him, though he’s not really a prospect

Hard to believe. The evaluators seem to overtly shun utility types as prospects.
