    You're in luck. He played mostly at 2b once he got to Arizona and Dayton

    I went with Henry Rodriguez. He's at the highest level, (A+) and batted over .300 last year. Also plays good D at 2nd

    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.

    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.

    I went Correa for the same reasons OBM mentioned.

    Soto. I think he's fallen way too far in our estimation--maybe because we'd all gotten so excited about him in previous years. He put up a very solid season at High-A: .778 OPS, 56 extra base hits, as a 21 year old. In my view, he's a lot better prospect than a number of the people we've already voted in. Could Cody Puckett be added to the list now too?

    I'm with you... He's lined up to be a great post-hype sleeper... Would love to see him really start putting it together this season.

    I'm waiting for him to break out, but since it looks like he ends up a 1B I have a hard time ranking him too high until he really starts to hit
    Go Reds!

    I guess my problem w/ soto, is where does he play? Right now, it appears like he doesn't have a spot, and I don't love his bat enough for 1b. If he played all year at catcher, with similar numbers (rather than the bit he did early this year) he'd shot up my list. Heck, if they just came out and said they liked what they saw and want him full time at catcher next year, I'd start supporting him, but as of now, he seems like he's going to be a first bagger, and I just don't see a bat that is special enough to rank high w/o some defensive positional prospects.
