SS // Last year's first and second-round picks Christian Arroyo and Ryder Jones received aggressive promotions to the Augusta GreenJackets to begin the 2014 season. After hyperextending his thumb in May, on top of a sub-par start, Arroyo was demoted to Salem-Keizer where he has since thrived. As a member of the Volcanoes, Arroyo has displayed the type of gap-to-gap power that allowed him to slug an Arizona League-leading .511 in 2013. Arroyo is a bit like Joe Panik: a pure-hitting, original shortstop who will likely see more time at second base as the seasons progress.
