Re: Who is Redszone's #35 prospect for 2013?
Having ridden the Hayes train through a lot of stations, I probably ought to be consistent and go with Chris Manno. His numbers and track make him a lot like an other-handed Hayes. But I can't resist Juan Perez any longer.
Our Juan Perez appears to be the 18th to represent that name in the minor leagues. There's a chance he'll serve it better than most. Dude's only 21, and he looks to be done with Dayton. He did fairly well there last year after a very, very slow start. Over two pro seasons he sports a .777 OPS while playing almost exclusively shortstop. I'd expect him to see considerable time at second base this year; but still. He's shown some speed (24 SB last year) and power both (9 home runs in Dayton isn't bad for a 20-year-old middle infielder). There seems to be a lot to like.
