Re: Who Is RedsZone's #5 Prospect?
If I was betting on which of the candidates was most likely to have a solid major league career, I would pick Chris Valaika. It seems like he can just plain hit. According to public reports, he lacks range but is a good fielder who has excellent hands, ideal for a second or third baseman. He is a hard worker who, in college, came back from a significant injury.
Other guys may have higher ceilings, but I hereby cast my vote for Chris as prospect number 5.
