Early Predictions for the 2013 Hitter of the Year at Every Minor League Level
Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

One of the major challenges in evaluating prospects is trying to predict at which level a specific player will begin the following season.

For example, after batting .286/.390/.493 in his full-season debut at Low-A in 2011, the Rangers chose to bump the game’s top prospect, Jurickson Profar, directly to Double-A. Similarly, it's important to consider which players have the potential to jump multiple levels and which players have the potential to become big league regulars over the course of the season.

So, after reviewing many of the top offensive performances from the 2012 minor league season, I’ve put together a short list of predictions for the 2013 season.

More specifically, which highly touted prospect(s) will be the hitter of the year at every level?

*I'm omitting the rookie level due to the presence of so many (2013) draft picks.
