Hosmer, who made his debut at age 21, was ranked the #8 prospect in baseball prior to the season by Baseball America.

Hosmer received 4 first place votes, the third most of any candidate. The Hos also garnered 4 second place votes and 5 votes for third. Hellickson received 17 first place votes. Last week, when SB Nation bloggers voted, Hosmer finished second, behind Michael Pineda. The Mariner rookie finished a surprising 5th in the "real" balloting however.
