Interesting that you like Boxberger this high. I re-read some of the draft time scouting reports on him and I'm becoming convinced that, in the current Reds system, he probably is a top ten guy.
I'm also thinking about Soto for the next pick. Until this year, he seemed to be a possible high average hitter, lots of contact. Hate to downgrade someone too much based on a tough year in a tough league. He's still young and, if he repeats High A next year, I have a good feeling about his bat.
Not too worried about Soto's lack of walks just yet, or his defense. Seems to make a lot of contact.
