Featured cards: 2009 Topps Heritage High Numbers Neftali Felix #545, Derek Holland #560 and Julio Borbon #617

Neftali Feliz was a phenom in 2009 and the only question is how long the Texas Rangers will keep the young man in the bullpen - it will be interesting to keep an eye on him, particularly if he stays on track.

Derek Holland had an up-and-down rookie campaign, but dominated in an Aug. 9 start against the Halos - he is probably future No. 2 or No. 3 starter.

Julio Borbon looks to play in his first full season in the Major Leagues in 2010 - after getting a 46 game, 157 at-bat audition this past season, where he hit .312 with a .376 on-base percentage. He also hit four home runs and drove in 20 runs.

I used to believe he is related to Pedro Borbon Sr. - but all the both of them share is a last name.
