Houston Astros: Top 10 Prospects

7. 3B Rio Ruiz– Ruiz is third in line, behind Matt Dominguez and Colin Moran, but he’s still a solid player. He might be good trade bait, or possibly a DH if the Astros sour on Chris Carter. Ruiz is a good all-around hitter with some power, and he had a very good season in 2014. He could be a regular in Houston by 2017.  Grade: B  Upside: A solid, everyday bat who has higher than average homers and a great OBP
