Community Prospect Rankings: #3

New, comments

The race for the 2nd spot was a tight one, but Neftali Soto pulled ahead on Saturday and never relinquished the lead over Todd Frazier. I've added two more names to the list today, Zach Stewart and Juan Francisco. The two are the only remaining players that both Doug and John Sickels agree are in the top 10 for Reds prospects.

I'm interested to see how today's vote could go. If it's close by the evening, we'll leave the poll open an extra day. Otherwise, we'll take a look at spot #4 tomorrow.

Vote early and often!
