    Josh Fellhauer. Probably just a platoon outfielder, but as a LHH, he would be the major part of it and he can play LF/CF/RF.

    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.

    I'll stump for Zach Vincej again.

    At Pepperdine, he was named the Brooks Wallace Award winner, as best shortstop in collegiate baseball, and was the West Coast Conference's Defensive Player of the Year. Hit .339, while leading his team in doubles his last year with the Waves.

    Last year in Billings, in only 163 PAs, he went .336/.393/.434. Small sample size, league adjustment, and all, but that's a nice slashline for a SS who can pick it.

    Fellhauer. Then Devin Lohman who is a solid ballplayer, although likely a major league backup. I'm picking Lohman over Brodie Greene, who also could be a major league utility man.

    Lohman has had some very good OBP years so far, and seems like a scrappy player. I've read some nice things about him, although not on this site.

    Sean Buckley and Brodie Greene had down seasons in 2012, but are solid prospects and future MLB players. Lohman as well. ALL 3 should be ahead of anyone left.

    Steve Selsky here as I switch again, proving that I have no loyalty whatsoever. Selsky started slowly at Dayton but was picking up the pace. According to FirstInning.com, his three monthly wOBA in Dayton were, in order, .297-.310-.348. His LD% was a healthy 20%. So he was picking up the pace over there.

    Selsky had a very good year. He's a low draft choice, something like 33rd round, and I'm voting for guys like Fellhauer, Lohman, Greene, who are more highly touted prospects. Lohman was a third rounder, Greene a fourth, Fellhauer a seventh.

    At this point I'm not sure the Reds see Selsky as a serious contender for the big leagues, but obviously that can change over time. He was Reds minor league player of the month in August, a real feather in his cap, I understand the votes he is getting here.

    Yes, I know draft position doesn't mean everything. At this stage, I tend to stick with the more highly touted guys.

    What exactly is the case against this guy? Zach is on my radar between 35-40.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    I have him below a couple of the guys who were on the list last year, mostly out of deference, since they're all very close. Shortstops with a hot glove (his main value) and a decent hit tool definitely have value, but the hit tool is one of the hardest to get a grip on, even with larger sample sizes. See Ronald Torreyes and Dave Sappelt, who hit like maniacs in their time with the organization but have struggled mightily in the Chicago farms. Next year should definitely help solidify his value more.

    Sean Buckley is my pick here. The biggest case against him is his K rate, which is horrible, but not the lost cause that Duran is. The poor season he had wasn't even particularly bad, given that he spent time recovering from appendicitis and was playing in an incredibly pitcher-centric environment. Not many players left on the list have his power potential.

    Some don't think his bat will play; lacks pop, low walk rate, had a tough sophomore year at Pepperdine.

    Dayton is rather neutral. The league as a whole is a little pitcher friendly, but Dayton plays at a park that is a little hitter friendly.

    Josh Fellhauer, come on down! He some support earlier and then kinda lagged for awhile. Now he has finally made the honor roll.

    Huh. I suppose that speaks towards how dry the Dayton crop was last year.
