For those of you who don’t know him, Domonic Brown is the outfield prospect that the Phillies brought up to the majors late last season.  Brown is a young left-handed hitter who has great speed and is a good fielder. 

Many people have been speculating about the number 3 prospect in the MLB.  ESPN’s Keith Law is no exception, saying:

“Brown demolished Double-A and Triple-A in 2010, yet still has a lot of raw aspects to his game. He may just be the rare, special talent who has to complete most of his baseball development in the majors because minor league pitching isn’t a sufficient challenge for him.

“Brown has all five natural tools, and shows some refinement at the plate, where he works the count reasonably well and never had an issue with making contact until he reached Philadelphia. His swing can be a little long, but he accelerates his hands so quickly that, in the long run, I don’t expect him to be a significant swing-and-miss hitter and he has the hip rotation and leverage to hit for above-average to plus power. His reads in right field still need work and despite a strong arm he tends to throw off the wrong foot, but those are problems that can be fixed with time and better instruction in the majors.

“He’s not likely to fill Jayson Werth’s offensive shoes right away, but if the Phillies are patient Brown can be that kind of hitter when he peaks after a few years in the big leagues.” – Keith Law, ESPN

Brown is attracting a lot of attention, and people want to know if he will be a Hall of Famer, a one-year wonder, a bust, or anywhere in between.  These 10 are the players who Domonic Brown could turn into.
