    Rz - Hitter of the Year Poll******

    Thought we'd do an open discussion before I post a poll this weekend. Who is the Reds Minor League Player of the year in our opinions...

    NOTE*********THIS POLL WILL CLOSE SATURDAY AT 0515 PM CST. THANKS.


    Here are the candidates in no particular order:

    Billy Hamilton - .683 OPS - 95 SB - 23 XBH

    Not typical numbers for a POY candidate, but, he brings so much to the table as far as speed, pressure on the other teams defense and has won multiple games based on his flashes of talent alone.

    David Vidal - .838 OPS - 43 XBH - 10% BB Rate - 79 RBI

    Very solid 3B prospect in his first full season. Only 10 Errors on the year in his first full year as a third baseman.

    Brodie Greene - .783 OPS - 41 XBH - 36 SB - 79 RBI

    Not a normal candidate, but, has carried the Bakersfield team offensively with all the promotion while playing 3 different positions.

    Eric Campbell - .946 OPS - 57 XBH - 79 RBI - 11.2% - 15.2% K Rate

    Oldest of all the candidates but has put up the best numbers. That may be due to him playing at levels beneath him. Leads all Reds Minor Leagues with a .946 OPS

    Yaz Grandal - .885 OPS - 43 XBH - .390 OBP

    Elite catching prospect who shows both power and patience at the plate.

    Henry Rodriguez - .841 OPS - 50 XBH - 30 SB - .320 BA

    INF prospect who continues to hit and hit and hit. Can play 3 spots but profiles best as a Second Baseman. Has pop and baserunning skill.

    Neftali Soto - .904 OPS - 52 XBH - 12.63 HR per AB

    Elite Power prospect who finally learned to hit LHP. Among the leaders in HR in all of the Minors.

    Denis Phipps - .910 OPS - 52 XBH - 14 SB

    Actually hit almost the same number of HR's, 2B and 3B's as he did in 2010. But found a batting average to go with it. Probably a BABIP driven year but impressive none the less.

    Devin Mesoraco - .855 OPS - 53 XBH - .371 OPS

    Had a solid all around year. #1 Catching prospect in the minors. Was runner up last year.


    So who would get your vote and why?

    Nemesis came up with the original thread and left Torreyes off because he only played about half a season. Which seems reasonable. The numbers above came from the original thread. However, he had trouble setting up a poll, so I helped out. Reading the original thread I noticed Torreyes did have some supporters so I was the one that added him onto the poll. I should have posted his numbers. That was my fault.

    Torreyes numbers are as follows: 264 AB .360 BA .404 OBP .462 SLG .866 OPS. Only 16 strikeouts on the season.

    Mesoraco: Hits for power and average. A middle of the order hitting catcher. Super rare combo. (I am drooling all over myself while typing)
