    2007 MLB First Year Player Draft - Cincinnati Reds

    This thread is to discuss the players selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the 2007 First Year Player Draft and to report players that have signed contracts with the Reds after being drafted.

    2007 Draft: Cincinnati Reds

    Players signed indicated in Bold

    Round Overall Player Position School State
    1 15 Devin Mesoraco c Punxsutawney (Pa.) HS PA
    As strong as this year's high school class was considered at the outset of the season, it got even better when high school righthanders Jarrod Parker and Nevin Griffith and Mesoraco came out of the gate showing better tools and ability than they had last summer and fall. Griffith and Mesoraco appeared in showcases, but they didn't show impact potential until this spring, and Mesoraco has been the biggest riser of them all. An arm injury led to Tommy John surgery when he was a sophomore, and he was relegated to DH duties as a junior. His arm strength has slowly returned, and this spring he has shown a 70 arm with quick, efficient releases. Defensively, Mesoraco compares favorably to 2001 Angels first-rounder Jeff Mathis, with athleticism serving as the foundation of an agile, quick-twitch player who receives and blocks exceptionally well. He shows above-average bat speed and 50-55 power at the plate. He's a solid-average runner, too, rounding out a legitimate five-tool package that probably won't make it out of the first round.
