Re: 2008 International Signings
I was doing some more reading on Guillon. Baseball America says he throws 90-91 mph but he's got a funky delivery that will need some tweaking. 90-91 is very good for a 16-year old lefty. He probably doesn't have the projection to get his fastball up to 95 but adding another mph or two isn't out of the question with some mechanical tweaks. He's also a first baseman with big power and a tendency to swing and miss a lot. I figure the Reds view him as a pitcher with first base as a fall-back option.
I miss Adam Dunn.
