Re: Reds Top Prospects - August 2011 Edition
This is as good a place as any to discuss: Dave Sappelt > Drew Stubbs?
Stubbs looks to have an undeniable edge in speed, and arm, but Sappelt grades out with more game power and a much better hitting tool.
Patience is about the same (slight edge to Sappelt in minors, but that means little, IMO). Sappelt K's ahout a third as much. Oddly, defense (range factor, UZR, and Total Zone) grade as close to equal.
Too early to make these assumptions on Stubbs? On Sappelt?
