Re: Projecting 2013 Minor League Lineups
Yes, Hudson in Dayton. As I say every year, don't bet the mortgage on any of this. There are always changes due to injuries and various domino effects. No one saw Bryson Smith jumping Dayton last year until the final few days of spring training. In this case, some of these players, such as Mejias-Brean, might be initially thought of for one club but with the door open to go to another. This is in contrast to a situation like Stephenson last year when I was saying there was no way Stephenson was starting in Dayton because I knew that was not even being considered.
Robert Ramirez is a guy they like a little and he might be in that 2B mix too. Dailey was looked at as a catcher in instructs...they are trying to find a spot for him because he has some potential as a hitter but has not shown enough in the field. I think he is in the second base mix.
Moscot-Langfield...both a solid prospects. Moscot, a west coast guy, might just be a bit more polished at this point.
Have heard a little about Reynoso. Not sure about the other AZL guys. One thing to keep in mind on some of those guys: There just are not a lot of people who have seen them play when all they have done is go through a half season in the AZL. I have not bumped into a lot of people who have seen those guys play yet.
I am looking forward to seeing this Vincej play a little. I hear he can really pick it and he hit last year. Remember, he was the national shortstop of the year (Brooks Wallace Award) at Pepperdine.
Another player that could work into the Dayton picture is Adam Matthews out of South Carolina.
Reds are short on catching with some clubs right now. I posted on another thread I thought they might try to find a catcher in the minor league Rule V.
