For a look a bit further out than the next couple of years, check out Ryan Bliss. Bliss was the Diamondbacks' second-round pick out of Auburn. His highest level of play was Low-A last season, where he slashed .259 / .322 / .443 over 37 games. He appears slated to start at that same level this coming season. All that being said, he's exclusively played shortstop in college and at Visalia.
