As so many people often do, it’s easy to fall in love with a prospect who showcases elite power early in his minor league career. Most of the time, such raw power is bundled with a long swing and severe swing-and-miss tendency that ultimately results in a career as a Quadruple-A slugger. Rarely does a prospect’s raw power and power frequency translate at the major league level—unless you're Giancarlo Stanton, that is.
However, without focusing on a prospect’s overall projection, I wanted to offer my take on the top sluggers housed in the minor leagues. Even though a majority of the players on this list are still at least a year away from making an impact in the big leagues, their raw power is undeniable and will inevitably be a calling card over the course of their respective careers.
