Re: Wednesday 5/02/2012 Minor League Updates
Am I crazy to think that Cingrani is the No. 1 pitching prospect in the organization? Everyone wants to put Robert Stephenson ahead of him, and while I loved the Stephenson pick in the first round last year, he hasn't pitched an inning of pro ball yet. I'd have to put Cingrani ahead of him for now just because of what Cingrani has accomplished during his time in pro ball. Small sample size, but utter domination.
Also, I like Cingrani a bit more than Corcino. And I like Corcino a lot! I know everyone has Corcino ranked higher than Cingrani, and I can understand that. However, if I had to bet my house on who will have the better MLB career, I would pick Cingrani.
I suppose the bottom line is that the Reds have three really-good starting pitching prospects in the organization with Cingrani, Corcino and Stephenson.
