New York-Penn League Top 20 Prospects
Talent was up across the short-season New York-Penn League in 2008. Rarely has the league seen the quality of catching it featured this summer. Tri-City's Jason Castro, a first-round pick in June, topped this list, while Vermont's Derek Norris and Williamsport's Travis D'Arnaud, high school draftees in 2007, ranked in the top five. Jamestown's Miguel Fermin slugged a league-leading 17 homers and showed a strong arm but did not crack the Top 20 as a 23-year-old.
