Snider has just over a year of pro experience under his belt, but he's already proven to be one of the best bats in the Minor Leagues, rewarding the Blue Jays for ignoring their policy of avoiding high school players in the first round of the draft. In 172 career games, Snider has a .316 average and .926 OPS. He more than held his own as a teenager in the Arizona Fall League, finishing in the top 10 in batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage and OPS.

In other words, the guy can flat-out hit. He's also a decent outfielder with a strong arm that should allow him to become a prototypical right fielder. His experience in the AFL could mean a faster ticket to that future, perhaps with a jump up to Double-A, if not to start, then at least at some point in 2008.
