2008

Another high school outfielder from the 2005 draft, Rasmus is another exciting young talent with all five tools at his disposal. He played nearly all of 2007 in the Double-A Texas League at age 20 and did much more than hold his own, leading the league in home runs and finishing among the leaders in a slew of other offensive categories. He capped his season with a strong performance for Team USA at the World Cup in Chinese Taipei.

Rasmus is also a talented center fielder with a strong arm and speed that plays as well in the field as it does on the basepaths (he's stolen 59 bases and been caught 14 times in his career). He should move up to Triple-A with an eye on St. Louis in 2008. It would not be surprising to see him in Busch Stadium at some point during the coming season.
