But Hamilton is the best overall athlete in the system and profiles to play shortstop at a high level. Its tough to have a corner outfielder top that upside.
    I noticed that Baseball America's draft report also said Silva would eventually move to a corner. Yet, he played CF with 3 assists in 64 chances and an impressive 7 triples in 143 AB's, yet only 1 HR. He seems to have the speed and arm to play center. Is this a case of playing him at the more skilled position until he shows he can't stick there? The Reds have been known to do that with SS candidates.

    Very likely. Right now Silva has above average speed and a strong arm. I think that people see him growing some more and losing some of the speed which profiles him as a corner outfielder.

    Has Juan Duran's stock dropped that much? Terrible year, but he's a kid for crying out loud.

    Technically it's dropped but really maybe he just shouldn't have been rated so high to begin with. You never know what you are getting with these kids especially those not coming up in the states. That's why I ranked both he and Yorman around 20-ish last year. As young as they are no need to over rank them as we'll have plenty of time to figure it out.

    Guys, OBM is out of town until Sunday and he asked me to take over the duties until he gets back. Tomorrow afternoon I will post the appropriate poll (#11 prospect or a run off if Maloney picks up a few votes on Soto).
