    I reported it to the mods. I really need to stop doing these in such a hurry.

    Slacker!

    Still going with Ravin's upside. Even if he winds up in the bullpen, right now he is a guy with a 94-95 MPH fastball as a starter (that touches higher than that) and a good breaking ball.

    My head says Chacin or Brandon Dailey but by heart insists on a sympathy vote for Valaika. Somehow, I think he's better than he's shown the last couple years. The little I've seen of him, he seems like a competent player who can hang around the big leagues and maybe even do something.

    I went Guillon probably more out of a misguided sense of I've always liked him and think he'll have a bounce back year. He just turned twenty, he's got good size, and he's left handed.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    I've been voting Renken, but Guillon is next on my list.

    The problem with Valaika is that he is the definition of a replacement level player. I honestly think he is no better than someone you can pick up for the major league minimum easily at any point in free agency. He doesn't walk, he doesn't hit for power, he doesn't play defense and he has no upside. There is no way I would trade the slim chance that Covington becomes a major league pitcher for a replacement level player like Valaika. That being said, I wouldn't be infuriated about any trade for a player that is still left to be picked since we are so far down on the list.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #37 prospect?

    Daniel Tuttle's candidacy brings to mind Jacob Johnson, who was on the ballot last time but received no votes. Tuttle (5th round) and Johnson (11th round) were both drafted in 2009, and it was Johnson who made swifter progress. He arrived in Dayton a year ahead of Tuttle, and produced comparably. The organizational coaches lauded his maturity and coachability. He was on the fast track. But he was hurt for all of last year, which has obviously affected the polling in his regard.

    My question is: Does anyone know anything about his health status? Is he ready to go at 100 percent? If so, I think he should definitely be a factor at this point. After the 2010 season, I had him ranked as my #2 starting pitcher prospect, behind Aroldis Chapman.

    He should be ready to go soon, if not by the start of the season. He is throwing now and is on pace or very close to it, for being ready for opening day.

    Thanks, doug. Do you know what the injury was?
