Prospect Heat Rankings | May 3

It's a victory lap for the top of this list, as promotions will have a serious effect on how this list is next week. Who is in position to take the top spot? How about the guy with an 11-game hitting streak?

Name (Previous Rank)
1 Tim Lincecum (1) He's not going to be in the "Prospect" heat rankings much longer.
2 Kevin Frandsen (3) Frandsen batted over .400 in Fresno, and drew more walks than strikeouts en route to getting back to the majors.
3 Antoan Richardson (6) Hard to ignore an 11-game hitting streak. Richardson has really impressed.
4 Nate Schierholtz (10) Nate has bounced back, hitting his first home run since the initial weekend and batting over .300.
5 Brian Bocock (5) Bocock has continued to cool down, but he's still the best base stealer in the system.
6 Adam Cowart (2) Cowart falls after a hard game against Kannapolis.
7 Ben Snyder (7) Snyder has quietly had a strong season so far, despite a recent hiccup.
8 Dan Ortmeier (4) It's been Ortmeier's turn to cool down after an early season surge.
9 Pat Misch (NR) Misch had a couple of hiccups in mid-April, but as only given up one run in the last seven relief outings.
10 Bobby Felmy (NR) Felmy has hit in nine of the last 10 games, with five multi-hit games.
