Re: 2008 International Signings
Here is just a little summary on the four main players signed by the Reds:
Yorman Rodriguez - 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame. Plus-plus speed. Very athletic, profiles as a center fielder. Reds have scouted him for three years.
Juan Duran - different style of player from Yorman. Duran is 6'5" and 190 pounds with average speed. Has plus-plus power potential.
Junior Arias - would have received a higher signing bonus but suffered an elbow injury and had surgery on it after he signed. Is expected to be healthy by spring training. Strong and athletic. Short and quick swing. Good defender with a solid arm.
Anyelo Polanco - not quite as good as Arias, but is a solid defender with some ability from the left side of the plate.
I miss Adam Dunn.
