    And Tejada is clearly a better hitter.

    Now the question is, how will he do against advance pitching in AA?
    I like him, but he doesn't make quality contact because of his plate discipline. Hence why his BABIP is always low.

    As a 1B, he will need to hit a lot more.

    I'd say they are very close offensively, but very close defensively as well.

    Aderlin's power isn't based on potential, it's legit.

    Puello's power is based on potential.

    That's what I'm driving at.

    Mazzoni actually reminds me a bit of John Maine. He has that drop and drive delivery, with the rising fastball, gets a lot of flyballs. And like Maine was the slider is OK, but not enough to really put hitters away reliably. Maine ended up developing a pretty decent change, which is why he had a little success as a SP. I think Mazzoni will do better moving to the pen, where he's already shown he can gain a tic.

    Tejada was in the majors already at 20 years old. As a 19 year old, he hit .289/.351/.381 in AA over a full season.

    Tovar put up a .254/.308/.332 line in AA at 20 years old. To me, they aren't comparable until Tovar proves more.

    His power isn't, but like Puello, his overall hitting ability is.

    Defensive ability, has shown power, is very close to the majors...

    Not saying I agree, just that I understand why he has been voted for a couple of times.

    I like him, but he's much more likely to be a 4th or 5th OF than an everyday CF. His plate discipline is very suspect.

    Voted on Jack, he might be our most important lefty very soon out of the pen!

    I like Leathersich quite a bit too but as a reliever i am guessing 13th might to be high for some.

    The FIP was good last year at 2.66 and his 76 Ks in 48 innings was really impressive.

    We traded Jefry Marte for Collin Cowgill if that's who you're thinking of.

    I agree. If he can just work on his discipline with his defense and ability to hit for power, I could see him being a good role player in the future.
