Re: Who is Redszone's #9 prospect? 2013
I like Rahier quite a bit, but he's got a long way to go. I think he'll hit well in 2013 with Billings.
If he does, I expect he'll move up quite a bit next off-season in these rankings.
In fact, speaking of next off-season, if Red minor leaguers do as they should, I suspect there will be quite a few within the Top 100 list. Hamilton nor Corcino are ticketed to stick in Cincinnati this season. Cingrani could be there-- or he could pitch in AAA for the entire season. Winker and Stephenson are going to move up should they play in Dayton as they did in Billings. (Hitting like he did in Billings in Dayton might even move Winker into the Top 25; pitching as he did last season will move Stephenson there.)
The only two prospects that may move up this season are Henry Rodriguez and Cingrani. And neither is a lock.
The entire Top Ten could be back in 2014.
When was the last time that happened?
