I mean, it's not an All Star team, it's a best prospects list. Even if his numbers weren't so great, I'd expect a higher rating for Travieso as a prospect.
Somebody (either the Reds or Baseball America) has it wrong.
The guy who does these lists says this is the deepest he has ever seen this league. So you can't exactly compare it with other years.
One other note, is that the league rankings, as opposed to the team/top 100 rankings, are more based on what league managers/coaches had to say on the players rather than scouts who saw them play. That is why you will at times see the league rankings have Player A ahead of Player B, but then in the team and Top 100 rankings Player B being ranked ahead of Player A.
