TigsTown Power Rankings: 1st Edition

It might be a bit hard to judge who has had a hot start considering the weather the minor league clubs have battled. Despite that though, one individual clearly emerged with the hottest start of anyone in the organization.

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.
