The Reds select 15th in Thursday’s First-Year Player Draft, and there has been little speculation as to whom the Reds might select. We’ll explore that question for the next few days.
In the meantime, over at John Sickels’ Minor League Ball blog, they’ve conducted a mock draft. In the first round, they have the Reds selecting Matt Dominguez, high school 3B from California; Nick Hagadone, a LHP from the University of Washington is the Reds’ pick in the supplemental round.
I’m really looking forward to Thursday. These drafts show us a lot about the General Manager, and his point of view (in terms of what he deems important). We’ll gain a few more data points on that question in a few days.
