    I already mentioned him. He's my pick.

    Yeah, he battled injuries all year.

    It's getting tough to hang in with the quality of these picks. Good stuff. Without duplicating somebody else's choice, I'll unscientifically go with . . .

    Everyday player: Eric Eymann

    (Also considered: Tyler Stovall, Shaun Cumberland, Cody Strait, Jose Castro, Efrain Contreras)

    Pitcher: Jeff Jeffords

    (Also considered: Luis Montano, Josh Beal, Travis Webb)

    Cody Strait isn't with the Reds anymore

    Last I knew of, yes. He had TJ this past spring, which is why he didn't play this year.

    What's with all the love for Darrick Hale? This year, he has a small frame, is 23 years old, in the GCL, hasn't done anything to impress.

    Yeah, I was shocked when I saw his name pop up. He's already 23 and put up just a .665 OPS in the GCL last year.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    If you're going to quote stats from a small sample size, look at the .804 OPS at Sarasota. He just strikes me as a little SS that's going to work his tail off to get to the bigs. Besides this is sleeper, not next big league all-star. He's got low expectations in spades. If he makes it to Dayton it would be huge.

    edit for an addition pitcher: Raul Rodriguez - born on the day of the first game of the 1990 WS. That's mojo.

    I viewed them as sleepers because they haven't played a game for a Reds minor league team, they haven't been listed in the top prospects list and they were missing from a lot of the top 40 prospect lists posted on the thread with that title. I think you had them on your list, but you were in the minority. I wanted Morrison for the hitter, but you already picked him.

    The thread title is 'sleepers', not players who are comatose.

    Please, Hale's not comatose. He'll be quite alive when the year ends. You'll see.

    I hope you're right. Fwiw, I will say that he's probably better than most of us give him credit for.

    I'm reaching and I know it. I like his story. Always root for the underdog. It's less that I expect him to do great but that I really root for guys like him.
