RR Community Prospect Rankings: Yorman is Yourman

New, 64 comments

In the closest race we've seen so far, Yorman Rodriguez is your 5th ranked prospect in the Reds season. According to Reds VP of Scouting and Player Development Bill Bavasi, "...you put him at Moeller High and you wouldn’t have heard of Bryce Harper." That's pretty high praise, even considering the source. I think he could be ranked even higher on this list next season if he's able to rocket up the system like some are expecting him too, but even if he doesn't, age is on his side.

Today's vote sees three newcomers joining the party. Vote early, vote often.
