A #4, #5 starter is very valuable, especially if they go deep into games. Look at how many bad pitchers the Reds started over the last 3-4 years. If they had a dependable #4,#5 that would have helped a lot. A LH impact setup guy is useful, but not as important. If your talking about a #4,#5 and star closer type numbers, then that would be different
Waring was picked last year, you can't fault him for playing at a lower level.
If you want to pick a toolsy corner position player, I'd go with Nefi Soto over Juan Francisco or Brandon Waring. Nefi Soto is still raw (like the other two), but he strikes out the least of the three and walks about as much as Waring. On top of that, he's the youngest, and he has already shown a willingness to hit opposite field while Brandon Waring has been a pull hitter.
