I hear he is mainly a fastball guy with limited secondary pitches, but it looks like he "misses bats." He's moved fast, is doing well at AA, and I expect him to be a Red.
I'm curious as to why you think Roenicke would be rated higher than Calvin Medlock right now. I think you could even make an argument for Carlos Guevara possibly ahead of Roenicke as well.
IMO he is either the 2nd or 3rd best relief prospect in the Reds system right now. That does not translate to a top 10 prospect.
Don't get me wrong, I like Roenicke, and I agree that one day he will probably pitch in GAB, but let's not get carried away.
