Prospect of the Day:  1B Sean Halton

Baseball has its fair share of cliches, but one axiom remains true year after year: first basemen in Triple-A Nashville simply rake. Brad Nelson launched 38 home runs in 2007 and 2008 with the Nashville Sounds. In 2009 and 2010, it was Quad-A slugger Joe Koshansky who combined for 50 home runs, including an .866 OPS in his final season with the Brewers organization. Finally, last season, it was Mat Gamel, who hit .310/.372/.540 with 28 home runs for the Sounds.

This year, Sean Halton has taken the reigns in Triple-A Nashville and responded with an OPS over .800 and 11 home runs. The 6-foot-5 first baseman has never been known for prestigious power. In Nashville, however, there is no other option. Only 80 games into the season, Halton has hit more home runs this season than he has in any other professional season to date.

The power numbers are inflated and should be taken with a grain of salt. The offensive environment has to be taken into consideration. The Pacific Coast League leads to more home runs.

Why else would Logan Schafer be flirting with double-digit home runs this year?
