Vote 2 Votes

The results of this year's minor league fan poll are now in. Forty-five players were nominated and a total of 126 votes were cast. In the end, right-handed pitchers Trey McNutt and Hayden Simpson, along with outfielder Matt Szczur tied with nine votes apiece.

The top ten vote-getters are:

1. Trey McNutt - RHP
1. Hayden Simpson - RHP
1. Matt Szczur - OF
4. Josh Vitters - 3B
5. D.J. LeMahieu - IF
5. Reggie Golden - OF
7. Michael Burgess - OF
7. Micah Gibbs - C
9. Jae-Hoon Ha - OF
9. Brett Jackson - OF

However, since only two pitchers were selected and Brett Jackson may be a quick call-up, I'm asking readers if they would mind Jackson being replaced by pitcher Chris Carpenter, the next leading player? Post your comments, and the will of the people shall reign.

A special shout-out goes to Steve23, who has given a new nickname to Rubi "The Expensive Cuban" Silva, IF/OF.
