Re: Who is Redszone's #37 prospect?
Daniel Tuttle's candidacy brings to mind Jacob Johnson, who was on the ballot last time but received no votes. Tuttle (5th round) and Johnson (11th round) were both drafted in 2009, and it was Johnson who made swifter progress. He arrived in Dayton a year ahead of Tuttle, and produced comparably. The organizational coaches lauded his maturity and coachability. He was on the fast track. But he was hurt for all of last year, which has obviously affected the polling in his regard.
My question is: Does anyone know anything about his health status? Is he ready to go at 100 percent? If so, I think he should definitely be a factor at this point. After the 2010 season, I had him ranked as my #2 starting pitcher prospect, behind Aroldis Chapman.
