Re: Who is Redszone's #12 prospect? 2013
I considered Vidal, Soto, Lutz, Brean, Moscot, Gelalich, as well as Bryson Smith and Steve Selsky before pulling the lever for Chad "Shark Bite" Rogers. His ceiling is a MOR starter who logs a ton of innings (Mike Leake Lite, IMO)-- which I like. His floor, otoh, is not bad either, as I believe he'll be a Sam LeCure type middle reliever for a few years.
That's nice value for the number 12 pick in an organization, IMO. Especially one such as Cincinnati's, which is undeniably down this season.
