Re: Who is Redszone's #4 prospect?
Francisco hit .277 with 34 doubles and 23 homers at age 20-21 in a tough pitcher's league, High A ball. Even if he never walks again, that production should put him squarely in the competition for number 5. When you consider his great throwing arm, he probably should be the favorite for number 5.
It's possible that Duran should be number 5. It's also possible he should be number 1. I just don't know enough about him to make a judgment on him and it's hard to evaluate the relative standing of a guy who's still that young and hasn't reached the GCL as yet.
Stubbs should be number 4. If he can continue to hit as well as he did at AA and AAA, he probably should be higher given his defensive abilities.
