Sickels re: Henry Rodriguez:

Henry Rodriguez, Reds
When he is back healthy what do you think his big league ceiling is? And do you see him as more or a 2B, 3B, or UT?

He was off to a great start again this yea before getting hurt and has done nothing but hit as a pro and has good gap power it seems

Henry is a very interesting player….he always hits well, but scouts don’t seem to like his glove much and are always coming up with excuses to downgrade him. If rehab goes well and he keeps hitting, he would be a candidate in August.

and re: Stephenson

Robert Stephenson
Does he deserve to be mentioned with the top 2011 arms, or is his ceiling a notch or two lower?

I am very impressed with Stephenson and consider him one of the top pitchers from the 2011 draft, in terms of longterm potential anyway. Let’s see how he does in shortseason ball but he could easily move up the August list
