Jeff Kobernus, 2B, Washington Nationals
Current Level: AA
2012 Top 15 Prospects Ranking: 15th
Current Value: Sleeper

Like Hoes, Kobernus could develop into a solid bench player but he also has a chance to grind out some regular playing time if he continues to develop. He has just 11 extra base hits in 62 games but he has 32 steals on the year and nabbed 53 in 2011. Kobernus, 24, needs to do a better job of getting on base and has taken just 16 walks in 62 games (and walked just 21 times in 124 games in ’11). With Danny Espinosa and Steve Lombardozzi already lined up at the keystone in Washington, Kobernus may end up as trade bait.
