STS ranks the Top 5 Sally (South Atlantic League) second baseman for 2010:

1. Tyler Saladino, Chicago White Sox

In Saladino, I see a plus defensive second baseman with on base skills, gap power, and the ability to play a little shortstop in a pinch.  Of the players on this list, he may not have the highest ceiling, but his floor is the highest by a wide enough margin for him to earn the top spot without giving it a second thought.  The only real red flag in his current skill set is his ability to make contact as a 25% strikeout rate simply isn’t going to work at higher levels.  With his quiet approach and baseball IQ, I’m confident that will come down as he continues to work on breaking ball recognition.

Saladino @ Kannapolis: 198 PA, 165 AB, .309/.389./442/.831, 22 BB / 44 K, .412 BABIP, .365 wOBA.
