    Torreyes gets my vote yet again, perhaps the 4th time is the charm.

    It's Soto for me in fact I probably should have voted for him earlier, I still like his upside with the bat.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #20 prospect?

    The problem I have with Torreyes is there is no pedigree or scouting report that suggest his numbers were not more than a hot streak and given his level of competition plus sample size it just does not excite me. I am intrigued yes, but there are plenty of promising guys still on the board who we know a bunch more about.

    I went with Correa

    I disagree with your assessment. This is a guy that was playing at the national club level for Venezuela before signing, has been getting write-ups in Baseball America, was named the Outstanding Hitter in Instructional League, and the Reds saw fit to ensure he got a taste at Dayton at the end of the season.

    He went to Dayton because the AZL season was over and they needed players while Billings was in the playoff hunt so they didn't want to break up that team. Still a little early IMO for a guy like Torreyes.

    I don't think he's going to hit the board for a while but I just can't pass on Dorn any longer.

    PS - I have no problem with a vote for Correa, just think Torreyes is deserving of consideration also

    Eh, it is still little more then reading the box scores and saying whoah this kid is hitting, which is great and all but I prefer more concreate reports thats all.

    Between the scouting reports and the numbers, Correa's gotta be in the top 20 at least

    That's why I contend the Reds system is so deep. A lot of interesting guys still to come

    This is going to be a fun one for me, because I don't have strong feelings about any of these guys... I can listen to the arguments and decide in a day or two.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #20 prospect?

    Kevin Goldstein wrote this about Jonathan Correa back at the end of July.

    Yet another interesting young arm in the system; 19-year-old Dominican has 25 Ks over 16 innings in last three starts thanks to 91-93 mph fastball and plus slider.
    http://www.baseballprospectus.com/ar...commentMessage

    2010 was Correa's age 19 season (he turned 20 in September). As a 19-year old in the hitter friendly AZL and Pioneer League, Correa posted a 3.26 ERA and 19 BB/83 K ratio in 66.1 innings. He's 6-foot-1 168 pounds, so there's room for projection there. He's already throwing 91-93 mph and has a chance to add another mph or two. His slider is already a plus pitch, and I'm sure Mario Soto will work with him on a changeup, if he isn't already. There's a lot to like here.
