What's your Top 10 ranking look like now?
Mine looks like this...
1 - Daryl Thompson - the Volquez of the Reds minors. I think you have to keep him at #1 until he stops producing.
2 - Todd Frazier - he's dominated everywhere except in Sarasota and you have to think his bat will get hot again soon.
3 - Yonder Alonso - potential to be a cleanup hitter in the majors while possibly being an above average defender.
4 - Travis Wood - He's made it to AA now and looks good so far. Needs to cut down on the walks, but he's a K per IP left handed starter. It wasn't long ago that he was right behind Bailey and Bruce in the rankings.
5 - Josh Roenicke - throws serious heat and could be in the majors by the end of the year. Pitched very well in Spring Training this year.
6 - Matt Maloney - Only one sub par outing since the first of May. He's got good command and doesn't give up many HR's. He won't be a top of the line starter, but could be a solid #4 in the majors.
7 - Chris Valaika - struggled once called up to Chatt, but hitting .324 in his last 10 games.
8 - Drew Stubbs - gets on base and plays plus defense. The power numbers aren't there though and needs to work on turning some of his K's into hits.
9 - Devin Mesoraco - he's hitting well in Dayton so far and has potential to move way up on the list by the end of the year.
10 - Juan Francisco - great power numbers and has the raw talent to be a good defensive 3B. His OBP is horrible though and keeps him from being considered as a top tier prospect.
