One power-hitting first-base prospect, the Royals' Eric Hosmer, was recently promoted to the big leagues. Could another one be not far behind?

The Arizona Diamondbacks are getting very little out of the three players they've asked to hold down the first-base position. Xavier Nady (.311 OPS), Juan Miranda (.383 SLG) and Russell Branyan (.392 SLG) all have failed to step up thus far, and there are some who think Brandon Allen has too many holes in his swing for the team to count on him as a regular. With that in mind, we look at one of the hottest hitters in the minor leagues, Paul Goldschmidt.
