Re: Who is RedsZone's #4 Prospect?
If you're going to go offensive, chico, then Valaika is your man. His bat is supoerior to Stubbs in all facets, with the possible exception of HR power. Too, he can play a middle infield position (SS), at least at this point. Both were college guys in Rookie League and Valaika doesn't K much at all up to this point.
Yes, Stubbs is talented, but, then again, so was Drew Henson.
(BTW, because my Cueto argument was obviously not persuasive enough in the last round, he's my vote again this round.) Great arm, great year. Only question, at this point, is his frame.
At worst, Cueto looks like a probable late inning reliever, a la Little Man Gordon.
