Whoever was behind the strange voting anomaly a few rounds back, they've finally gotten their way, as Henry Rodriguez takes home the #8 spot on our list with 41% of the vote. Hank has hit at every level, save AAA last year after coming back from a hand injury. I'm excited to see if the switch-hitter can regain his excellent contact ability and post another .300+ / .350+ / .425+ season on his way up the ladder. People see him as a future utility guy, which would be fine, but I think there's still some definite upside here (switch-hitter, very good hit tool) especially if the Bats give him some reps in an admittedly crowded outfield. No new names today, so you're familiar with these guys. Poll closes Sunday night at midnight!
