    MILB.com's top NL Central prospects

    The Reds had the most with three: Joey Votto, Homer Bailey, and Jay Bruce.

    Joey Votto

    2006 AVG R HR RBI SB OBP SLG OPS
    MiLB .319 85 22 77 24 .408 .547 .956

    Opening Day Age: 23 | ETA in Majors: 2008
    2006 Club(s): Chattanooga (AA)
    Last year’s Southern League MVP went 20-20 in Chattanooga in 2006, erasing a frustrating 2005 campaign for the Canadian. With a little more work on his defense, his bat will be at Great American Ballpark in the near future.

    Jay Bruce

    2006 AVG R HR RBI SB OBP SLG OPS
    MiLB .291 69 16 61 19 .355 .516 .871

    Opening Day Age: 20 | ETA in Majors: 2009 | 2006 Top 50 Rank: 8
    2006 Club(s): Dayton (A)
    Joining McCutchen from the high school outfielder class of 2005, Bruce had 63 extra-base hits in his first full season. Many of the 42 doubles will start turning into homers for the outfielder with the most power potential from that ’05 group.

    Homer Bailey

    2006 W-L SV ERA IP H BB K AVG.
    MiLB 10-6 0 2.47 138.2 99 50 156 .198

    Opening Day Age: 20 | ETA in Majors: 2007 | 2006 Top 50 Rank: 3
    2006 Club(s): Sarasota (A+), Chattanooga (AA)
    The Bailey-Hughes debate might wage on for years in the big leagues. Bailey’s got the better pure stuff and should be a true No. 1 in the very near future. Look for him in Cincy by midseason.

    BTW go to that link and click on the audio summary of the NL Central's top prospects. They have a nice little piece on Joey Votto.
