Rahier has shown some power, which is more than I can say for the guy drafted ahead of him, probably the biggest Reds bust of the decade, Jeff Gelalich.
I wouldn't have Rosa there either. My view is you don't get to call yourself a prospect if you haven't hit at all. Gelalich really has been terrible. Weird draft class for the Reds in 2012 - a handful of really interesting kids and a whole lot of instant flameouts.
