And I agree with that assessment. The list only goes to 25, but I believe Johnny Cueto is a top 80 prospect, and Travis Wood also deserves some nomination for a top 100 selection.
21. Jay Bruce, OF, Reds (new): Bruce made a big splash in his full season debut at low-A in 2006. The 2005 first round pick batted .291 with 42 doubles, 16 HR, 81 RBI, and 19 stolen bases. Bruce should continue to get better as he is just 19 years old, but the five-tool prospect still has a few more years in the minors ahead of him.
14. Joey Votto, 1B, Reds (+5): Votto had a big season at AA in 2006. He batted .319 with 22 HR and 77 RBI. He also had 46 doubles, 24 stolen bases, and a .408 OBP. The team signed current first baseman Scott Hatteberg to a contract extension so it appears that Votto will begin next season at AAA.
10. Homer Bailey, SP, Cincinnati Reds (+4): Bailey began the season at high-A and finished the year at AA. He was outstanding upon his arrival at AA and went 7-1 in 13 starts with a 1.59 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP, and 77 strikeouts in 68 innings. The team would prefer not to rush him, but Bailey could pitch his way into the Redsí rotation next spring.
