Top 10 opposing players for 2012 - No. 8: Bryce Brentz
Brentz received a signing bonus of $889,200 from Boston, and spent his initial time in pro ball with Lowell, the Red Sox affiliate in the New York-Penn League. He struggled to a .198/.259/.340 line with the Spinners, although 23 of his 52 hits went for extra bases.
He was also selected by the Indians in the 30th round of the 2007 draft.
"In a system filled with intriguing sluggers, Brentz has the most usable power. He combines explosive bat speed with pure strength, and he turned a corner when he realized his homers would come naturally. He toned down an all-or-nothing approach and used the field more in 2011, though his plate discipline still has room for improvement. "
