    Redzone Minor League Prospects Ranking #52 & 53

    I took all three players tied with 5 votes as 49-50-51 alphabetically.
    Ty Boyles, HRod and Ryan Wright. At the point now where 1 spot higher or lower doesn't mean much.

    On to #52 and 53.

    Gelalich and Klimesh. They're both aging quickly for the low levels theyre in, but the talent is there. Hopefully something clicks this year with Gelalich. The guy can get on base if he just brings his K numbers back down to his amateur levels. I wonder if the power he discovered his final year in college has affected his approach. Either way, the kid has 664 career PAs, so he could still surprise everyone and, IMHO, should be a Reds top 50 prospect, only 2 years removed from a sandwich pick.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    Luis Gonzalez has three seasons under his belt--none of them, unfortunately, in the States. He was dominant in two of them. In the first, he was 17. In his second season (the one not dominant), he might have been hurting, because he subsequently missed all of 2012. But he bounced back last year to post a 0.766 WHIP in the DSL. And he's left-handed. At #53 (after Vargas), I guess that's enough for me. (Though I was tempted by Vincej, Siri, Hayes, Selsky . . .)

    Elizalde's in a similar boat. Main differences being he never had a bad season and he played in a much better league.

    I'm all over the board lately. It's time for spin art.

    Siri and Vargas.

    Wasn't Jamroderick McGrduer somewhat highly thought of in Seattle (20-30 range) prospect? Should he get consideration here?

    I voted for him. He's got some tools, though power isn't one of them. Plus, that name is money.

    Jeff Gelalich is the new Mark Schramek.

    I remember when Schramek, not Votto, was supposed to be the new superstar...I don't think anyone really saw Schramek's ceiling in Gelalich, however.

    The funny thing about that is that the Reds drafted Schramek because of how cheap it would be to sign him.
