Here’s a quick summarization of the Red’s prospects who were ranked in the top 20 prospects in their league by Baseball America.
20. Chris Denorfia, of, Louisville (Reds)
1. Homer Bailey, rhp, Chattanooga (Reds)
7. Joey Votto, 1b, Chattanooga (Reds)
1. Homer Bailey, rhp, Sarasota (Reds)
14. Johnny Cueto, rhp, Sarasota (Reds)
1. Jay Bruce, of, Dayton (Reds)
12. Johnny Cueto, rhp, Dayton (Reds)
7. Drew Stubbs, of, Billings (Reds)
13. Chris Valiaka, ss, Billings (Reds)
The only league the Reds were shut out in was the Gulf Coast Rookie level team. This is a much better showing than the organization has had in some time. Only surprise here to me is that Drew Stubbs rode his tools and high draft position to such a high rating in the Rookie level Pioneer League. Hopefully he will back that rating up next season at A Dayton and look more like Jay Bruce than BJ Szymanski.
