Very interesting mock draft posted free-style at Baseball Prospectus has the Reds rolling the dice that 3B Kevin Ahrens, the general consensus pick assigned to them in most other draft speculation, would still be around at pick #34, the supplemental selection we got for losing (snif) Rich Aurilia. So we'd hypothetically be adding Quebecois HS RHP Phillipe Almont, rated #11 on Kevin Goldstein's overall draft board:
11. Phillippe Aumount, RHP, Ecole Du Versant HS (QUE)
Pros: Tall Canadian fires mid-90s fastball and pretty good slider; well-proportioned and repeats his delivery well for an inexperienced pitcher with his size.
Cons: Scouts have gotten few chances to see him, as he has no high school team (he comes to the U.S. to pitch in showcase-style events); violent mechanics leave some questioning his ability to throw 75-100 pitches every five days.
