I see GreenPosted by Paul Singman at 6:55pm
No, not the color green. Grant Green, a shortstop currently at Single-A in the A's minor league system. Drafted 13th overall in the 2009 draft out of USC, this 22 year old shortstop could make a nice leap up prospect charts with a solid minor league season after which he could find himself already in Triple-A. With a relatively clear path to the majors blocked only by the average-ness of Cliff Pennington, Green can land himself a starting major league job as soon as 2011 if he picks up where he left off in college.
Promising is the research by Jeff Sackmann, showing that Green hit well even against the better pitchers he faced in college. And if you are into even less statistically significant pieces of information, you should know that Green got a hit off now-Yankees starter Phil Hughes in high school.
Obviously most of you do not care about a player with no chance of making the majors in 2010, but if you name is Jonathan Sher or you play in a ridiculous dynasty league, Grant Green is a name to which I would start paying more attention.
Paul has been managing fantasy baseball teams for many seasons and writing for THT Fantasy over the past three years. He is currently a student at UPenn welcomes readers' thoughts at his email here or in the comments below.

I drafted Green on my farm of my AL-only keeper league, with the expectation that he will be ready sometime in 2011.
Glad to see he is right on schedule.
