    I saw a photo of Phipps from Redsfest -- he looks much thicker/muscular than before.

    Interesting that Hamilton was picked.

    Perhaps shining him up for trade value?

    Anybody know what Phipps' injury is?

    He was at Redsfest and it was announced that he couldn't participate in the Celebrity Wiffle Ball Tournament due to injury? When did he get hurt?

    Really surprised Hamilton got that award. Yasmani Grandal and several others had much better seasons than Hamilton did, even when considering position/defense.

    I can understand Grandal, but several others when he's the Redszone number 4 ranked guy.

    That was as a prospect, meaning potential is factored in and not many in the Reds system can match him there sans Yorman. If we ranked it purely on how they performed last season the list would look much different.

    He has a bruised wiffle.
