Ike Davis/First Base Rankings

I had part of this in a thread over on Sickel's blog, but figured it may be of interest here.  I think Ike is moving well up the ranks, ahead of even Lars Anderson in my mind now.

This list does not count 1B DH types now catching such as Montero or Flowers, etc., or if Wallace moves to first

I may be missing some guys, but here is a possible top 10:

Rank name age level avg/oba/slug ABs BBs Ks Community Rank(minorleagueball preseason)1B and Overall

1. Freddie Freeman, 19, AA .306/.386/.457 324 30 46 (7-46)

2. Justin Smoak, 22, AAA, .288/.402/.443 271 50 57 (2-22)

3. Logan Morrison, 21, AA, .268/.419/.459 157 41 25 (5-38)
 
4. Yonder Alonso, 22, AA, .287/.360/.470 230 28 35 (6-44)

5. Chris Carter, 22, AA, .306/.408/.513 386 65 98 (8-51)

6. Ike Davis, 22, AA, .296/.384/.507 345 49 87 (N/A)

7. Lars Anderson, 21, AA, .260/.351/.389 339 47 90 (1-21)

8. Eric Hosmer, 19, A+, .255/.349/.376 306 46 74 (4-29)

9. Kyle Blanks, 22, majors, .283/.393/.485 233 39 63 (9-79)

10. Brandon Allen 23, AAA, .295/.368/.492 356 39 68 (N/A)

Ike's ISO is the highest of anyone on the list, and considering he was in FSL and EL, as opposed to say, Carter, in Texas League, that's really impressive.  Still discounted a notch due to strikeouts and last year, but last year now seems like the fluke.   I gave Freeman the nod over Smoak due to age and he is already doing well ina limited sample at 19 since his promotion to AA. I have carp as honorable mention.  But for Ike to be someone in the running for top 3 even (Alonso and Carter ahead by just a  hair) after last year is really an impressive comeback.
