Minor leaguers who regressed in 2007

Per Kevin Goldstein, Baseball Prospectus:

After crashing out of the majors by going 7-for-54 (.130), Kory Casto’s downward slide continued with a surprisingly awful .246/.334/.384 line at Triple-A Columbus.

Almost as Disappointing: After an impressive pro debut in 2006, reliever Zech Zinicola proved to be not ready for an assignment to Double-A, putting up a 5.46 ERA in 42 games with nearly as many walks (36) as strikeouts (45). The club's 2006 third-round pick, Stephen King, lasted just 35 games in Low-A, hitting .180/.261/.258. While he rebounded a bit in the Gulf Coast League, he still amassed 105 strikeouts in 313 at-bats.
