    MLB.com's Top 10 Reds Prospects

    1. Aroldis Chapman
    2. Yonder Alonso
    3. Devin Mesoraco
    4. Billy Hamilton
    5. Yorman Rodriguez
    6. Yasmani Grandal
    7. Todd Frazier
    8. Brad Boxberger
    9. Juan Francisco
    10. Zack Cozart

    Predictions

    Hitter of the Year -- Billy Hamilton, 2B
    The transition to full-season ball won't be too tough for the speedy leadoff hitter, who will challenge for the Minor League lead in stolen bases while also finishing on the leaderboard for average and on-base percentage.

    Pitcher of the Year -- Brad Boxberger
    Whether he stays in the rotation or finds a home in short relief, Boxberger will make adjustments and figure out Double-A hitters in 2011. He'll continue his 10.8 K/9 ratio and then some, all while limiting hits, be it in the rotation or closing games.

    So, their top 10 and our top 10 are remarkably similar. They have Boxberger at 8 while we have Sappelt at 10, but besides that they are close. Real close.

    Jonathan Mayo on Donnie Joseph:

    He'll also not have to worry about developing his changeup and can rely on his very good fastball and breaking ball from the left side. But he's more than just a lefty specialist. He may never be a closer, but he's got the kind of stuff that can get lefties and righties out and he could evolve into a very good setup man. Even if he begins the season back in Double-A, he could help out in Cincy before the year is over.
