I do like Cozart a lot and I feel he has a chance to be a solid contributor for the Reds next year. He has a lot of value. However, I cannot get over his inability to take a walk. This has lead me in past prospect rankings to not select guys like Francisco and it will hamper Soto and Cozart's ranking on my personal list this year.
I know Bakersfield is a hitter's paradise, but Grandal continued his hitting into Carolina and for a very short time in Louisville. He is a tremendous minor league hitter and there have been no conerns about him sticking behind the plate in the majors. I feel he is the more valuable prospect if we remove the Reds' current short stop and catching situation from the equation. In terms of who has more value in a vaccuum, I select Grandal.
