Re: Baseball America: Pioneer League Top 20 Prospects (6 Reds)
but the Travieso selection was a curious one from the start- kind of like Hayden Simpson or Matt Hobgood in previous years.
I wouldn't go that far. Travieso was shaping up as a late-first/supplemental pick. Simpson was projected well below the 1st round, and Hobgood was the #5 overall pick. In my book, he was a minor surprise, not a major one.
