    Tony Gutierrez

    How about this guy? He has 44 walks in 224 AB's, which is far better than Joey Votto did in the FSL last year. Doesn't seem to hit for alot of power, but some weightlifting should help that out and he seems a bit injury prone?

    He may be the cushion if the Reds do trade Votto at some point.

    alot of power comes from ur swing and mechanics, not just from pure strength. look at sean casey and hee-sop choi, who are both big guys, who don't have home run swings.

    He's playing in a major pitchers park right now, which basically ate Votto alive last season, so maybe I'll give him some slack for the lack of power right now. His contact ability and patience would look VERY nice though if he could tack some power onto it.

    The take a strike edict didn't exactly mesh well with Votto last year, which I have feeling messed with his BB rate and overall numbers.

    Tonys has a pretty big frame and the only injury that I am awaring of him having was a minor one earlier this year? And it looks like he's improved his BB rate greatly from last year which is a good sign
