Reds Prospects

Postby PlayingWithFire » Mon Apr 24, 2006 9:06 am

I know all about Edwin Encarnacion.

I know Elizardo Ramirez is a control pitcher with average stuff. What more can you guys tell me? Projections? Compare him to a current major leaguer?

I don't know much about Chris Denorfia, seems like a low ceiling but a solid player who'll have a hard time finding playing time in the Cincy OF. Is Ryan Church a fair comparasion?

Thanks

Homer Bailey is the stud of the organization. Denofria could be a major leaguer on a less OF worthy team, maybe if Dunn moves to 1B. I think he could be somewhere along the lines of a Church to an Edmonds (best case).

Jay Bruce is the guy to watch:

Besides Bailey, there isn’t a more promising prospect in the Reds’ system than Jay Bruce. He has the speed, power, and a great plate discipline that kids his age do not yet possess for the most part. His speed will allow him to play center field as Griffey’s replacement. His plus-plus arm could even allow him to play right field should Kearns falter again. Bruce has the potential at this very moment to play starting center field for the Reds and most any other organization. He is without a doubt a 5-tool player and a potential all star. Bruce played 1B at Waco and even pitched for awhile in his earlier years, though he did not pitch with Waco. The Reds will take their time with Bruce hoping that Kearns and Pena flourish in the majors. Very soon we will see Jay Bruce the starting center fielder taking over for Ken Griffey Jr.

problem is that I didn't get Jay Bruce in a trade(I'll try in the future)

I got Edwin, Denorfia and Elizardo.

Well, 1 Pena is on the Red Sox and 2 Denofria is seen as the OF that will come up if more than 1 OF ever goes down. Ramirez is not good and any trade you got him in sounds strange. He had 1 good start while being a career minor leaguer. come on
