Re: Worst Reds Draft Pick
How is Devin Lohman not on this list?
Even though Lamarre hasn't worked out as planned, I can at least see the upside with him because of his defense, speed and his ability to get on base. He may have still been a reach, but I can understand the logic, even if it doesn't pan out.
Lohman for me was easily the biggest head scratcher pick the Reds have made in the Buckley era, considering, he was a 3rd round pick. What was to like at draft time? And what's to like now?
He can't hit, he's not fast, he's not a defensive whiz, his power is average. About the only skill he has is that he can take a walk.
About the best that Lohman can hope for is that his career follows a similar trajectory to Jack Hannahan. Lohman should start learning to play some 3B and 1B. Even Hannahan's career may be a big reach for Lohman.
