    As an aside, the one guy you've really elevated for me is Ortiz. I'll still be voting Contreras next round (because Moscot looks like he's got a comfortable win here), but I'm 90% sure Ortiz is next on my board after him, in no small part due to some things you've written.
    I don't see why he couldn't start in the Majors. His stuff is good enough to do it and he has control. Not a top of the rotation guy, but a solid middle of the rotation ceiling for him.

    He has a long way to go to even be a passable defender in the outfield. The parts are all there. He has plenty of straightline speed, his arm is outstanding. But when he gets moving in a non-straight line he gets clumsy and uncoordinated still.

    I'm going there next. Not a lot to choose, IMO, among Moscot, Lively, Contreras, and Rogers, whom I had in that order on my own list. All four look to me to have very good chances to pitch, in some role, in the major leagues. I guess my ranking reflects the judgment--admittedly only poorly informed--that the first two are more likely to do so as starters, the latter two, as relievers.
