No. 7 CHRIS HEISEY, CF, REDS
Team: Double-A Carolina (Southern)
Why He's Here: .500/.556/.818 (12-for-29), 1 2B, 2 2B, 2 HR, 8 RBIs, 4 BB, 0 Ks, 2 SB
The Scoop: Heisey is quickly going from being an intriguing sleeper prospect to one of the best prospects in the Reds system. Although he can hit most anywhere in the lineup, it's hard not to admire his leadoff skillsówith 24 walks and only 13 strikeouts all season, Heisey is a walking example of a tough out. He also makes pitchers pay once he reaches. He's stolen nine bases in 10 tries this year and is now 74-for-88 (84 percent) for his career.
And on the Not-So Hot Sheet:
Devin Mesoraco, c, Reds There's an old scouting adage that catchers take longer to start hitting because they have so much else to worry about. The Reds better hope that's true because Mesoraco is now hitting .180/.281/.311 for high Class A Sarasota. His defense isn't helping him eitheróhe's thrown out only 6 of 40 base stealers.
