He was on my radar. Just didn't talk about him here. After seeing him swing though, I like him more than I did at the end of the regular season. And is it really a breakout on his home soil? The kid did hit .322 in the GCL this year.
If you say so. He isn't on your top 40, and that's got guys like Mark Fleury and Alexander Smit on it.
We all saw HRod's numbers in the GCL, but nobody made much noise about him. When they needed an infielder in Billings, Cris Rodriguez got the call, not HRod, so I have to think HRod has surprised even the Reds.
And yes, he has had a breakout in the VWL -- playing SS and hitting leadoff to the tune of the high .300s, ahead of Callaspo, qualifies as a breakout for a 19-year-old who's had 1 season in the GCL.
