Eduardo Rodriguez #5 Prospect
Eduardo Rodriguez's upside as a middle of the rotation starter gets him the nod at #5.

An encouraging report - though I would prefer someone with this stuff to be around our eighth or ninth prospect.
Still, for a second international sign to be in our top five is very encouraging.
Tony, while I understand the comment about a lack of overwhelming swing and miss stuff and lowish K-rate for a top prospect, should we really have expected that much better results given the projectability one and age (relative to competition) two?

This is a guy who I latched onto relatively early in his career, and I'm glad to see him progressing well through the system. The low K/9 is a bit worrisome but he's very young and has time to gain a little more velocity and he seems to have a natural feel for pitching. Next year will be a big proving ground for him.

After Bundy and Gausman, Rodriguez and Hader are the two next young arms I'm really excited to watch come through our system.

The farm needs some rain.
