From the Baseball America Hot Sheet:

15. Ezequiel Tovar, SS, Rockies
Team: Double-A Hartford (Eastern)
Age: 20

Why He’s Here: .417/.533/.792 (10-for-24), 5 R, 1 2B, 1 3B, 2 HR, 5 RBIs, 5 BB, 5 SO, 4-for-5 SB

The Scoop: The beat goes on for one of the most improved prospects in the game. Tovar entered the year with a reputation as one of the best defenders at shortstop but a little light in the batter’s box. No longer. Now, Tovar has upped his offensive game and transformed into one of the sport’s best all-around prospects. All three of his triple-slash numbers (.327/.411/.601) rank among the top five in the Eastern League, and his 23 extra-base hits are just one behind fellow Hot Sheeter (and Tigers prospect) Kerry Carpenter. (JN).

From the Prospect Report that Alex posted last October:

"Tovar's outstanding glove should get him to the big leagues, but he could be a very intriguing player if his bat develops."

All he did was go 11 for 20 in ST, with 2 doubles and 3 HR.

So far at AA Hartford this year:  .340/.431/.590 with 5 HR in 100 AB.

I think his bat is developing.

Oh - and 11 for 11 on the basepaths. 
 

And he doesn't turn 21 till August.

Can Rodgers/Iglesias/Tovar/Trejo keep him on the farm till then?
