BP's Positional Rankings: Third Base

I skipped the second base positional rankings because no Indians showed up there (though as they noted in the article, 2B prospect rankings are always thin since it seems that it mostly ends up being failed SS at 2B), but the rankings for third are up & they feature an Indian, though likely not one you would've expected about a year & a half ago:

7. Wes Hodges, Indians
Age: 22.9
Hitting: .299/.372/.465 at High-A (76 G)

A second-round pick last year who got first-round money (a cool million), Hodges has been impressive in his pro debut. He's a gifted hitter who should hit for a good batting average, but it will be the development of his secondary skills that defines his future value. Right now he draws an acceptable number of walks, and hits for a decent amount of power. If he can bring either of those pieces into the above-average range, he's far more dangerous. If he can improve both--and, according to scouts, the potential is there--look out.

Also (speaking of 3B prospects), I hadn't noticed this before, but Jared Goedert came back to Kinston on 7/19 after over a month on the DL. He was part of last night's 22-10 victory over Lynchburg with a 5 RBI evening, though he was outdone by Josh Rodriguez' 9 RBI.
