Alvarez, Pedro - Tools are undeniable, ceiling of a Teixeira, floor of Mike Lowell
Fowler, Dexter - Only because Alonso has a really small sample size, 5 tools, Sizemore ceiling
Alonso, Yonder - Fantastic ballpark, will advance quickly
Matusz, Brian - Fantastic command, plus stuff. Think Jon Lester ceiling
Carrasco, Carlos - Huge ceiling, tough park, but I like him a bit more than Bowden
Gamel, Mat - Bat is MLB ready, but needs big work in the field
Bowden, Michael - Low 90s fb, 12-6 curve, improving change. Profiles as a #2, but would be #5 in Boston
Santana, Carlos - Makes Shoppach expendable. Solid tools for a C

Hope this helps

Good list, would likely be mine as well. Though with Carrasco/Gamel/Bowden I could see them ranked in any order and not have a problem with it.

Do you think Alonso will move past Votto in Cincy? Votto has put up decent numbers and should take a step forward. I don't know enough about Votto to know if he could play the OF but Alonso is pretty much only as 1B.

Votto is more athletic and has decent speed for him to move to the OF. I'm fairly sure that was the whole idea in drafting Alonso and not signing Dunn, so they could move Votto to LF once Alonso is ready to come up.
