Thanks to newfever for his post on the BA minor league team.
SP Homer Bailey • Reds
The Reds sure have a lot of players on this list, don't they? The 20-year-old Bailey pitched better after a promotion to the Southern League, but he was plenty good in the Florida State League, overmatching opponents with his effortless, lively fastball. You might be seeing our 2004 High School Player of the Year in the majors as soon as next year if he continues at this pace.
