Curry is hitting his way to Bradenton early in 2011
The early part of the 2011 minor league season has seen more than a few players get off to hot starts, but leading the pack so far is West Virginia Power first baseman Matt Curry. Curry is off to a .400/.481/.800 (1281 OPS) start after Wednesday's game. Embedded within that .800 slugging percentage are 6 doubles, 3 triples, and 2 homers. Additionally, Curry has walked 8 times and struck out only 4 times in 45 at-bats. In the Pirates Prospects 2011 Prospect Guide, I had Curry ranked #22 on my personal list heading into the season (he placed #44 overall by Pirates Prospects staff). Additionally, in the 2011 Minor League Preview for the West Virginia Power, 3 of the 5 staff members selected Curry as their Hitter of the Year pick.
