    Travis Wood is No. 10 on BA Prospect Hot Sheet

    No. 10 TRAVIS WOOD, LHP, REDS

    Team: Double-A Carolina (Southern)
    Age: 22
    Why He's Here: 2-0, 2.25, 12 IP, 9 H, 3 ER, 3 R, 2 BB, 15 K
    If we had had a normal Prospect Hot Sheet last week, Wood would have made a case for No. 1 with a complete-game shutout with 11 strikeouts. Until his start on June 18, Wood was working on a 22-inning scoreless streak. Even with his three runs allowed on June 18, he's still allowed only five runs in his last 41 innings, which explains why he's 7-3, 1.36 this year. Wood had the worst ERA (7.09) in the Southern League last year, so this is a pretty amazing turnaround, which can be credited in part to a cut fastball he's perfected plus improved fastball command. The command may be the biggest improvement—he walked 27 batters in his first eight starts, but just five in his last six.

    I've liked this guy as a prospect ever since he lit up the GCL a few years ago coming out of high school. A plus change-up is a great weapon to have in your arsenal.
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

    Command and arm health are the only questions I've ever had about Travis.

    Command now seems to be solved, if he goes 150 innings this year, then health ?'s can be tossed aside too.

    Greg (The 'Nati): Who is the Reds left fielder of the future - Frazier, Heisey, or Votto (once Alonso is ready for 1B)? Why are the Reds using Frazier exclusively in LF at AA when there is such a gaping hole at 3B at the major league level?

    J.J. Cooper: Very good question that I can't really fully figure out. The Reds are going to have to make a trade at some point, as in two years they could have five guys (Stubbs, Heisey, Frazier, Dickerson and Votto if they are willing to move him) to play two positions with Bruce in right. I can't really explain the decision on Frazier, as Juan Francisco's raw approach means he's quite a ways from the big leagues, and Frazier seems able to handle the position.

    So why can't Stubbs or Heisey play Center? Put Frazier at 3rd base move Votto to left and Alonso to first. Have Heisey and Dickerson be the 4th and 5th outfielders.
