Oops! Asleep at the switch!
Well, I can’t really argue about Nevin over Pop, though I voted the other way. I really like Pop and was gratified to hear that he’s healthy and throwing pain-free. He should be a full go next spring and to me he’s a guy who could move really quickly if he recovers his stuff.
I don't know if anyone was tough to leave off, but I'd say the following players were in the running for the last two spots:
Zach Pop: Hasn't barely pitched in two years so hard to know where he is at this point.
Leonardo Rodriguez: I liked what I saw when he was in Aberdeen. Flashed me a plus slider and mid-90s fastball.
Luis Sanchez: Good reports on the arm and the age gives him quite the ceiling, but until I haven't even seen video of him so he can't give him a ranking yet.
Ramón Urias: Has a chance to be an everyday starter next year at 2B. I could have built a case for him to be over Bannon but need to see more from him especially since he defense was so bad during his major league time.
