What other *unknown* players should I be tracking like this? Who are you all tracking?


P-r-i-c-e



Price, ey? Well, like Kershaw, he's not available yet in Yahoo. So... why is Bruce, who's never played an ML inning, available, and other highly touted prospects, like Kershaw--and I assume, Price--aren't?

Regardless, what team/org is Price with?

David Price was the first pick of the draft last year. He's a lefty from Vanderbilt signed by Tampa Bay. I can't imagine Price gets a callup before September, as Tampa has alot of SP depth.

**from Fantasyguru.com:

"Ken Griffey Jr.; Last week, it was reported that Seattle had scouts looking at Griffey. But why? The Mariners are 7 ½ games out of first and adding Griffey wouldn't be anything more than a ploy to fill seats. Griffey could very well be moved in a trade so the Reds can bring up Jay Bruce, but adding Griffey doesn't fit for Seattle."


i really hope that the reds just release cpatterson and NOT trade griffey in order to open up a roster spot...who could be a better mentor for bruce than a phenom from 20 yrs ago who hits left throws left and is used to the hype and pressure ?.. let junior show the kid the ropes, there is no one better on that reds team to do that than griffey...you certainly don't want dusty whispering in bruce's ear

The only thing more he could do would be to wash Dusty's car.

Call this kid up already!

Thats excellent news considering his K/BB ratio is the biggest knock on him right now.

And your post gave us what? Do us all a favor and don't post on this site, but instead go on to rotoworld.com and click refresh every couple of minutes until you see its official that Bruce has been called up.
