Theo Bowe had a breakout season last year and looks intriguing as he begins play in AA. (Maybe.)
Juan Silva played relatively well in Dayton last season and deserves another look-see, this time at Bakersfield.
Beau Amaral is the son of a former major leaguer, and he did fairly well last season in Billings.
Finally, Jonathan Reynoso is a BA Top Ten talent that scouts across the game seem to like.
These guys all look like they could be useful in some capacity, from fourth outfielders to major league stars. Interesting to see what happens here.
Hamilton will be the guy, so the mystery isn't there in CF. Lamarre is already 24 and hasn't had a good season at AA yet, I hope he has a hot streak and the Reds cash him in. Bowe is not my cup fo tea. Smith looks promising in a Chris Heisey 4th OF kind of a way. Not sure he's really an every day guy in CF defensively. Reynoso is interesting, but need to see more. Silva is intriguing and Amaral may have sme promise as a bench guy.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
