Systems Audit: Cincinnati Reds
February 08, 2007
1. Homer Bailey, RHP, AA. Bailey is a top pitching prospect in all of baseball and a jewel of the Reds system. He has good stuff. Plus fastball with great movement. Plus curveball with deceptive motion. Good change. The only flaw, and this isn't a huge deal, he needs to continue developing the change.
Future Lineup: (arrival date)
The top of the system is great. Three excellent prospects at the top followed by two good prospects followed by a group of risky, average at best, guys. Despite the lack of depth, any GM would be glad to have guys like Bailey, Bruce and Votto in their system.
System Grade: B+
Bravo, I love it.
It's nice to have a decent minor league system. I'm curious to see what Votto develops into, same for Stubbs.
Hopefully Cueto/Wood progress into the majors, that'd be a big plus for our organization.
For the most part, I approve of your assessment. I have seen many of these players in person, and will save time by not sharing my insight on each player.
I should point out one thing-Miguel Perez is a weak hitter, with very little power who strikes out a lot. In 400 at bats last year in AA, he hit just three homers and had a K/BB ratio of 88-19. In fact, he was just recently taken off the Reds 40 man roster, a smart move.
Based on my personal observation over the years of him...defensively, he's sound. In fact, he's very good. Right now..he can't hit. Maybe that will change.
But there are a lot of Reds front office people that are privately saying this guy will never be an every day starter. And I would be very surprised if he is in the Opening Day lineup next year.
Peace to all as we'll continue to cover the area for you...
