2013 Community Prospect Rankings: Naughty Nick Nabs Number 7

prospectnation.com

This does not look like a 19 year old.

Yet another pitcher is added to the list, as 2012 first round draft pick Nick Travieso took home the 7-spot. After 21 innings of professional pitching under his belt and not a long history of starting, I imagine he will start the year in extended spring training before going to Billings. If he is successful there he could get a call up to Dayton much like we saw with Bobby Steves last season.

One new name to add to the list today.
