It's time to rank the newest Atlanta Braves prospect, newly signed from the Dominican Republic, 18-year old Edward Salcedo. He just received the largest signing bonus the Braves have ever given an international prospect, and some scouts compare him to Hanley Ramirez and even Alex Rodriguez.
This might be a bit difficult as there are not too many detailed scouting reports on him, and of course he's never played a game in the US, but reports are that he will start out at one of the two A-ball levels, either low-A Rome or high-A Myrtle Beach. Starting out that high as an international prospect is a rare feat -- even Yunel Escobar started out at Danville.
We'll learn more about him in the coming months, but where should he be ranked now? I'm going to make the assumption that he will not rank ahead of, and I'm also going to assume that he's in the top-10. Vote in the poll below by the end of the weekend, and once we have the result we'll add him into our Talking Chop 2010 Community Top-25 Prospects (and kick poor Andy Otero out -- though probably not for long).
If you need a reference of the top-25, look on the left sidebar on the main page, near the top there is a section that lists our top-25 prospects. (That actually remains there year-round for reference sake, FYI.)
