Minor League Top Prospects
The Diamondbacks weren't sure what they were getting when they purchased Durazo's contract from the Monterrey Sultans of the Mexican League. He had hit well, but he was an unknown. "The guy had real good success in Mexico, but we were throwing him into Double-A," El Paso manager Don Wakamatsu said. Now that the season is done, Arizona couldn't be happier. Durazo hit .403 in 64 Texas League games, and demonstrated power, an ability to hit to all fields and an ability to make adjustments to pitching. "He's a polished-looking hitter," Arkansas manager Chris Maloney said. "I didn't see many weaknesses." Durazo isn't fast, and he needs work on his defense. But he finished the season in the big leagues, still hitting.
