This report doesn't sound encouraging

From Baseball Prospectus, which doesn't see a lot to get excited about in our minor league system. Excerpt:

High Class A Clearwater (5-5; 30-36)

Another bad offense, as nearly 25-year-old minor league veteran Brian Burgamy (.276/.387/.443) is the only starter with an OPS over .756 as 2005 top pick Mike Costanzo (.257/.340/.378) and Australian shortstop Brad Harman (.232/.320/.307) represent major slides. The good news is that Costanzo is hitting .340 in June--the bad news is that he hasn't homered since May 28 and has struck out once every 3.23 at-bats. Lefty J.A. Happ struck out a season-high 10 on June 6 and seems ready for Double-A, which is a test he'll need to see him pass before we can trust his fringy stuff.
