We are proud to announce The San Diego Padres Top 30 Prospects for 2012. Peter Friberg has been studying minor league and amateur baseball players for nearly 10 years and has been writing about Padres minor leaguers for approximately eight. Peter has compiled his top 30 prospects in the Padres system for 2012, we are now into the top 10, continuing with #2 Jedd Gyorko. It should be noted that this list was complied before the trade of Mat Latos. An updated list will be posted next week, with the additions of players acquired by the Padres.

2011 San Diego Padres Top 30 Prospects
2. Jedd Gyorko, 3B, 5’10” 195, Born: Sept. 23 1988Good: Gyorko does everything you want your offensive 3B to do. He hits for average, he hits for power (not a ton, but lots of doubles and at least average HR power), and he controls the strike zone. He profiles as the offensive 3B the Padres thought they had in Chase Headley.
