    3 to 1 SO/BB is a red flag

    Josh Reddick strikes me as a comp here.

    The preseason rankings will fluctuate incredibly over the course of the year and I don't consider MLB Pipeline all that reliable. Asa Lacy is more around the teens in other rankings and should draw interest.

    If we end up trading Tyler Stephenson we can just draft prep C Tyler Soderstrom and just tell people he started batting lefty.

    I'm not sure this will generate more excitement for the MLB draft, but it's a good move and shows some effort.

    I'd be looking to see if some power materializes for either of those guys.

    We're not talking about Bryce Harper here.
    Way I see it, if he comes off the board early than a name drops to us that wouldn't have been there.Drafting 12th seems like pretty cold comfort coming off of the season they just had. Possible upside? Since they probably won't be wpendinh $5-8M in 1st round bonus money, maybe they can make a splash elsewhere (a foriegn signing perhaps?.

    Re: 2020 Draft Class

    Tyler Soderstrom | Rank: 17
    School: Turlock (Calif.) HS Year: Senior
    Position: C Age: 18 DOB: 11/24/2001
    Bats: L Throws: R Height: 6'2" Weight: 190 lb.
    Commitment: UCLA

    WATCH
    Scouting grades: Hit: 60 | Power: 50 | Run: 50 | Arm: 60 | Field: 40 | Overall: 50

    Back in 1993, Steve Soderstrom was the No. 6 overall pick in the Draft out of Fresno State and pitched in the big leagues. Three years prior, he was a 15th-round pick out of Turlock High School in California. That's where his son, Tyler, currently plays and while he's not likely to go as high as his dad did out of college, a solid summer at events like the PDP League and Perfect Game All-American Classic have him firmly on the 2020 Draft map.

    Soderstrom is an athletic, left-handed hitting catcher whose bat is ahead of his defense. At the plate, he's really polished with a solid overall approach and makes the kind of loud contact that makes people sit up and take notice when he's taking batting practice. He's a hitter first, but he will get to his power. He might be a tick above average as a runner, especially for a catcher, and has shown he has the athleticism to play third and even the outfield.

    That could be important if teams feel he can't catch long-term. He's been the backup catcher on his high school team, mostly because the starter is a really good defender. Soderstrom's hands work and he has a very strong arm, but he is raw in terms of blocking and game management. A team taking him high will be betting that the UCLA recruit's mobility will be an asset and he can develop into an offensive-minded backstop in the big leagues.
    A bat first high school catcher who's expected to end up at first base, bats lefty but throws righty, and is a bit old for his class?

    Seems rather serendipitous.

    Disturbing trend I’m hearing with HS aged players - Travel coaches saying “If you leave our team, I’ll bad mouth you to all the colleges.” You people should be ashamed of yourselves!

    Re: 2020 Draft Class

    Fangraphs has one 55 prospect (Martin), two 50s (Hancock and Torkelson), and 12 45+ prospects. Hopefully the Reds can find a 45+ type at 12.

    There will certainly be a lot of movement between now and the time the Reds make their pick.
