Re: Reds Top Prospects 2013 Midseason Edition
Can't say I agree with you at all on Waldrop. People have been pointing out his "steady improvement", but for the Cal League he has really only had one good month, July, and his July was boosted by a .373 BABIP where he had 4 walks and 25 strikeouts. I think people give him a tad too much credit as an athlete too. Don't get me wrong, he isn't unathletic, but I think people lean a bit too much towards the "really athletic" side with him too. Solid prospect, but not a Top 10 guy IMO.
I wouldn't rank Cisco as even the 3rd best pitching prospect on his own team right now and maybe not even the 4th. I think he could be a Major Leaguer, but that team has a lot of good arms right now. No way is he the top on the list from the Dragons or in the top 10 for me.
