RR Community Prospect Rankings: Zack Attack!



In one of the closest votes of the competition, Zack Cozart edged Dave Sappelt for the 9th spot on the list.  The Coz is still considered by many to be the shortstop of the future in Cincinnati, but it seems like we've heard that for a few years now.  Still a plus defender, still an average bat, the real question will be if he ever gets a shot at the big league level, and from there, if he can hit better than apparent incumbent Paul Janish.

You asked for more names yesterday, so you're getting them.  We're adding another middle infielder and the first taste of the system's high upside young pitchers.  Vote now.
