Take a look at this guy:




80+ power. He has 31 home runs this year (21 at Hi-A and another 10 at AA Frisco)

I ask because I haven't followed nearly as closely this year, who has the best power (or power potential if it's a different answer) in the minors? Is it Gallo, Kris Bryant, or someone else?

From what I'm reading in BA it's Gallo with the most power. They actually said that he's above an 80.

I've never seen Gallo. I've seen Baez a bunch, and Sano a bunch. Given no reason to doubt the BA crew, I can only imagine what Joey Gallo looks like live and it must inspire incredible tumescence between the legs (from a purely baseball standpoint.)

Good thing Texas plays in an extreme pitcher's park to supress those fly balls.

He does, but take a look at how the bat coils at 2:26 on this video:




Legs are flying, hands are flying, bat is all coiled up .... more moving parts that what Jon Jay had.

FWIW, Baez's hands have quieted a little bit since that video was shot. There's still a lot of moving parts, but when you have Gary Sheffield bat speed you can afford a bit more pre-pitch movement like he did too. Baez's problem with a bullet is approach/pitch recognition, I've not seen anyone think that his swing itself will be an issue.
