9. Yorman Rodriguez, CF
Team: Rookie-level Billings (Pioneer)
Why He's Here: .428/.538/.810 (9-for-21, 2 2B, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 5 BB, 8 Ks).
The Scoop: Rodriguez was one of the most divisive signees from the 2008 Latin American class of 16-year-olds. The Reds saw a five-tool talent with a solid swing, while other scouts worried that he'd never swing the bat well enough for his tools to matter. It's way too early for judgment on who was right, but Rodriguez has more than held his own. The Reds promoted him from the Gulf Coast League to Billings last Friday and he responded by tearing up the league in his first six games. Overall he's now hitting .305/.388/.419 with six steals in six attempts, which is a pretty impressive start for a raw 16-year-old. He has everything at 16 that Dominic Brown had at 18, a scout who saw him recently said, but with more raw power.
