Q: Charles Berg from Houston, Texas asks:
Early Top 5 to watch for the minor league player of the year award?

A: Chris Kline: Berg-Piece, Wow. Good question, even though it’s not early. We start tracking players for our minor league POY watch as camp breaks. Right now I’ll go with Jay Bruce, Alex Gordon, Chuck Lofgren, Yovani Gallardo and Homer Bailey.

Two of the top five are Reds property. Does that excite anyone else?
