RR Community Prospect Rankings: The Lotzkar Enigma

A new soul-sucker? Image via canadianbaseballnetwork.com

Is he a literary orphan?  A Pixie? A hill person? A tasty Hanukkah treat?  No one can say for sure, just like no one can confidently predict his future with the Reds.  Is he an ace starter?  A shutdown reliever?  Or will his arm fall off long before he reaches the majors? Hopefully his previous injury was only a flesh wound and he can keep his limbs attached as he works his way up through the system.  For now, he's your #12 prospect.

So the people have spoken, and we have listened.  We're going to be furiously throwing players at you over the next few days, and today for Prospect #13 you get three young guys.  Junior Arias is an 18 year old middle infielder with an enticing power/speed combination, Ismael Guillon is an 18 year old lefty with a 92 mph fastball and devastating changeup, and Ronald 'The Beginning' Torreyes is an 18 year old infielder who is crazy fast and never strikes out.  My advice to you at this point is don't overthink your vote.  Just go with the guy you have a gut feeling about, or the guy who intrigues you for some reason (now we're starting to sound like eHarmony).  Happy Voting!
