2011 Draft Prospects Rundown: 3/15

Here is a recap of how each of the top 2011 draft prospects did this past week.  Click on their names to go to their tracker pages.

ANTHONY RENDON

Rendon had a horrible week at the plate, combining for a .190/.320/.333 line in 21 at-bats.  It was a rare poor performance for him, as he had more strikeouts (5) than hits (4).  He now has ten strikeouts on the year, which is almost half of his 2010 total, despite a quarter of the at-bats.

Rendon hasn't been as dominant at the plate this year, and still remains as the designated hitter due to a shoulder injury.  According to MK Bower of Fox Sports Houston, he is continuing his progressive throwing program, but a definitive timetable for his return to third is unknown.  Rendon has come in to play first a few times, including this weekend, although that has been as a late inning replacement, as part of a double switch.
