LaMarre turned in another solid if unspectacular year in CF for Pensacola. The speedy, right-hitting, lefty-throwing 23-year-old knows how to take a walk, and plays a mean center. I think there's a solid chance he sees time in the majors eventually, but it's hard to envision him as a starter, at least for the Reds. Still, a 4th outfielder who can play a true centerfield has value. One new name today. Vote away!
SETH MEJIAS-BREAN, 3B, 21
Highest 2012 Level: Rookie League (Billings Mustangs)
Eye-Poppingest Fact: 8 HRs in 46 games of pro ball
Most Worrisome Fact: 2 HRs his ENTIRE college career
Best Case Scenario: "Generic cop out answer because I have no idea"
SMB can pick it at third, and his power decided to show up right as he starts hitting with wood bats. Looking forward to seeing more of him. He's a good athlete who only struck out 8 more times than he walked (29K/21BB). He's got upside, and a long way to go.
