Why He's Here: .429/.538/.667 (9-for-21), 2 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBIs, 4 BB, 1 SO, 4-for-4 SB
The Scoop: After missing most of 2008 season due to left shoulder surgery, Jennings has announced his candidacy for our Minor League Player of the Year honors. He has the speed and athleticism to be a weapon in the field and on the basepaths, with 14 steals in 18 attempts and five triples. He has the plate discipline to take his walks and get a good pitch to hit, and the hand-eye coordination to find the ball with the barrel routinely. And he has enough power to punish pitchers when they put the ball over the plate. As long as he's on the field, there isn't much that Jennings—now batting .396/.455/.610 in 39 games—can't do.
