Florida State League Top 20 Prospects...

Ching-Lung Hu was named by Baseball America as the 12th best prospect in the FSL - "A" level ball. The Dodgers organization was well represented, as 6 kids from the Vero Beach team were named to the top 20.

The scouting report on Hu called him "one of the most polished players in the FSL." Hu was praised as a defensive whiz with quick feet, soft hands, smooth fielding, good flexibility, and a plus throwing arm with accuracy. The report also noted his ability as a good contact hitter (.313 BA), display a keen eye (40 K's in 470 AB's), and flash some occasional power (8 HR's). The one knock on Hu was his lack of patience at the plate. He only had 19 BB in 470 AB's.

Hu should start next year at AA. If he continues to progress, I wouldn't be surprised if Hu is the next one to make it to the Majors.
