Brewers' Prince named to AFL's Prospects Team
MILWAUKEE -- It has been a good couple of weeks for Brewers prospect Josh Prince, who was added to the team's 40-man roster on Nov. 20 and on Monday was named to the Arizona Fall League's Top Prospects Team, as selected by the league's managers and coaches.

Prince led the AFL in hits with 36 and finished second with a .404 batting average, 51 total bases and 23 runs scored while tying for second with 10 stolen bases. He finished third in the league with a .491 on-base percentage.

Prince, 24, was a third-round Draft pick in 2009 who converted from shortstop to center field this year. He was not considered a top prospect before following a stellar 2012 regular season at Double-A Huntsville (career high seven home runs and 55 RBIs to go with 41 steals) with an even better performance in the prospect-rich AFL.

"He made the most of his opportunity, I'll say that," assistant general manager Gord Ash said.
