Taking the #22 spot is the slick field shortstop by the name of Carlton Daal. Daal surprised some people this year by hitting better than expected, while his fielding statistics suffered from a large number of errors. Scouting suggests that his defense is better than what we saw in 2014 but no one really knows about his offense. He's a young guy with time to figure it out, and I'd expect to see him start the season in A+ Daytona.

Chad Wallach was a 5th round pick in the 2013 draft out of Cal State Fullerton by the Florida Marlins. He was traded to the Reds in the Mat Latos deal. Wallach is the son of former All Star Tim Wallach, and all his brothers were drafted at one point and played in the minors. Chad has a polished approach at the plate, showing the ability to take a walk to make up for his lack of power. After taking a look at his defensive numbers he doesn't look to be a liability behind the plate, but without more scouting or seeing him in person, who really knows. Outside of his lack of power, I can't see many weakness in his game, and I am very excited to see what he does at AA in 2015. He reminds me a lot of Ryan Hanigan but with a better pedigree.
