Nick analyzes prospects for RotoWire and focuses on the Midwest League during the season.

The trade deadline was a dud, but I still have a note on Grant Green, who was traded for Alberto Callaspo in an under-the-radar shrewd deadline move by Oakland, and a few other prospects around the minors.

Grant Green, IF, Angels: Drafted as a shortstop in 2009 by the Athletics (13th overall), Green is a better fit defensively at second base because he lacks arm strength. He can fake it at short and third because of his solid bat. Green, 25, is a pure hitter with a career .305/.354/.467 line in the minor leagues. He was hitting .325/.379/.500 in 87 games in the Pacific Coast League before the trade. Green could be a solid regular for the Angels next year.
