    Nevermind....The Marlins have two prospects with the last name White.

    Okay, final edit...Looks like I was right. OF Isaiah White (#16 Marlins prospect) is the final piece.

    Jim Bowden's take on the deal:

    The Cincinnati Reds have made a tremendous lopsided deal acquiring top pitching prospect Luis Castillo, legitimate bullpen arm in Austin Brice and an athletic OF prospect in Isaiah White. They sell high on Dan Straily, who's coming off his career best season but his peripherals say he won't repeat it. A back of rotation type starter. Castillo straight up for Straily would have been a win for the Reds. Great job of grinding by Reds GM Dick Williams on this one.

    Sounds like an absolutely great deal for the Reds. Acquire 2 solid pitching prospects and a young, 20 year old CF with "plus plus speed".

    I'm equally excited about some of the young pitchers earning a spot in the rotation. Sounds like Stephenson, Garrett, and Reed will be competing for the final spots. That's assuming @UKMustangFan's boy Finnegan is slotted in the starting rotation behind Disco & Homer.

    Is White "Billy Hamilton 2.0"?
