Re: Reds Top Prospects - August 2011 Edition
Scrap, what have you seen of Sappelt as a baserunner? My main reservation with him comes from having heard that he is--or at least was--a loose cannon on the basepaths. And perhaps a little lacking, overall, fundamentally. If he has put those issues behind him, I think I'd prefer him to Stubbs. You'd be sacrificing a good bit of arm strength, but that would be the only downside I'd see. Provided he plays with a head on his shoulders.
