Community Prospect Rankings: #9

New, comments

Kyle Lotzkar squeaks by at #8. Venezuelan wunderkind Yorman Rodriguez takes his place on the list. Despite not having any numbers to go by, he's one of the most lucrative international signings in Reds history and has drawn comparisons to Eric Davis.

With high upside guys like Mesoraco, Rodriguez, and Duran on the board along with guys that are close to the majors like Dickerson, Roenicke, and Maloney, it'll be interesting what kind of direction this goes in. Vote now!
