MLB Prospects Update: Hottest, Coldest Hitters at Every Minor League Level
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
OF Nick Castellanos is nearing a call-up with the Detroit Tigers.

Mastering the High-A Florida State League is usually a challenge for young hitters due to its pitcher-friendly parks and environment. However, somebody forgot to pass along that information to Miguel Sano.

The 20-year-old opened the season on fire at the more advanced level and is yet to lose steam. Through his first 56 games, Sano, whom I recently ranked as baseball’s No. 5 prospect, was batting .330/.424/.655 with 51 runs scored, 15 doubles, 16 home runs and nine stolen bases. And as a result of his overwhelming success, the Twins recently promoted the young slugger to Double-A.

Elsewhere on the Twins front, Byron Buxton continues to do amazing things. Ranked ahead of Sano as the No. 2 prospect, the 19-year-old is without a doubt the most exciting player in the minor leagues.

Here’s a look at the rest of the hottest and coldest hitters at every minor league level.
