2013 Community Prospect Rankings: Move 'em On, Head 'em Up. Head 'em Up, Move 'em On. Rawhide is your #13 Prospect.

Lukas Eggen

I like the way you do it Rahier, Rahier.

Tanner Rahier lost the runoff vote, but ended up taking the #13 spot. What he did in the Arizona League was diametrically opposed to pretty much every scouting report that came out before the draft, and I don't really know what to make of it. He got hit in the head with a line drive early in AZL play, so maybe that had something to do with it. Or maybe he was just an 18 year old playing in his first 51 games of professional baseball and he kind of crapped the bed. Either way, the kid has plenty of tools and plenty of time to develop them, so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for now.

One new name to add today, and voting will run through the weekend. So get out and rock the Vole vote!
