Re: 2004 Cincinnati Reds MLB Draft Selections
Overall it looks like a pretty decent draft. I like the looks of Homer Bailey. Everybody seemed pretty high on him, some places projecting him a top 5 pick. Rotoworld says that he has as much upside as anybody in the draft.
BJ Szymanski - I had the impression that he was more of a power guy than speed but his stats say otherwise at Princeton. Only 2 HR, but 6 triples. 13 SB in 15 tries. Not bad.
Janish looks like a good 5th round pick. His numbers make him look like a clutch hitter, unless he batted with runners on base a lot. 2 year stats look like he is a potential .300 hitter. Had 44 RBI this year.
Drew Anderson at 13 also looks good for middle infielder. Had a good year - batting .308 with 12 HR and an .875 OPS.
There has to be something that I'm missing with Jared Sanders. But I guess he was drafted by the BlueJays out of high school so maybe he has some upside but has just sucked it up. 7.67 ERA and 13.89 hits per game isn't good.
