    I see Valaika having a Ron Oester/Craig Counsell like career if given the chance to play everyday. Nothing spectacular, but solid league average middle infielder. And he's very close to that right now, which is why I continue to vote for him.

    If Boxberger was definitely a starter, he'd be my choice hands down, but likewise, if I looked like Brad Pitt, I'd be married to Angelie Jolie

    Re: Who is Redszone's #13 prospect?

    I went Lotzkar. His upside is TOR starter and he's apparently done well enough in his rehab this season to keep that golden wing healthy. I haven't seen that out of Boxberger put up those dominant numbers that Lotzkar has and his control is worrisome enough to keep him from my personal TOP 20. (Too much Joe Valentine for my taste.)

    That AA line is just horrid, aside from the K's. You'd have to have a pretty high opinion of his upside (and enough scouts to agree with you) to even consider him before Top 20, IMO.

    I'm hopeful about Lotzkar, but just can't rate him yet. He's already had multiple injuries in the same arm and he really hasn't put enough innings on that arm since returning to have much idea how it will hold up. Add that his success is against kids at a level he's already mastered and all that can really be determined from last year is that he hasn't broken down again yet. The jury is still out concerning both his ability to hold up and how effective he might be and how much of his stuff and command he'll regain. I lump him in with Thompson and Buck as guys I think the team should keep a real eye on, but have no idea how to rate them.

    His height scares me. The fact that he continues to grow has me thinking he may out grow his potential. If he were a basketball player this would be a good thing. But a baseball 6'5"+ batter had a huge strike zone.

    Can't think of a better player to compare him to than Oester.
