TigsTown Power Rankings: 7th Edition

Ramon Garcia can't really be the top player in the organization yet again, can he? Well, Humberto Sanchez and Kody Kirkland sure played last week like they were ready to take the top slot, and Jair Jurrjens has quietly been very impressive as well.

Note: The rankings are reflective of the how player has been playing as of late, and are not meant to replace the TigsTown Top 50 rankings. This list includes all players in the minor leagues, but not all are technically prospects. We'll include any standout performances as they warrant inclusion, but it's unlikely someone like Chad Durbin will find himself on the list.
