    Wallach 5th round C out of Fullerton last year. LOVE Wallach!
    Can he play 3B or LF? It looks like he can swing the bat.

    Don't know these prospects, so it would be dumb to judge off of that. But I will miss Latos. I think he's going to be a stud for a long time!

    Descantspellhisname will probably end up as an ok arm in the pen. Wallach isn't all that good and is in the low minors. For a 2/3 pitcher. I'll take it all day long.

    I really liked Latos. Hope he can stay healthy. If he does he should have a great year.

    I like his BB/K numbers for a young guy. He didn't have great numbers throwing out base stealers but that could be a product of working with young pitchers. He's listed as 6'3" 210 lbs so his build would suggest he could learn to play another position.

    He hit .322 with a .431 OBP at 2 levels of A ball last year. He made the Sally League All-Star team. I'd think it would be a little bit early to say he's not very good.

    So were 90% of players drafted in 2013.

    Most stuff I've saw projects him to a back-up C.

    Latos and his elbow seemed to be a big concern. I think the Reds had some deals in place or at least in the process that were derailed because of his health.

    I was expecting a bigger return, but my guess is the Reds were getting the best they could for a guy who is trending toward TJ in the next year or two.
