Reds Draft Picks 2009

The Reds will continue their draft but at this point these are the players they have selected:

#8 Pick- Michael Leake- RHP (Arizona State)
See scouting report below.

#43 Pick- Bradley Boxberger- RHP (USC)
Most see Boxberger as becoming a reliever. Has good velocity but has difficulty maintain speed throughout innings. A little inconsistent with his command but has an arsenal of pitches to use.

#57 Pick- Billy Hamilton- SS (Taylorsville High School)
Was a three sport star at his school in Mississippi. Has committed to Mississippi State to play football so signability could be a question. He has raw talent with all of the tools especially if he can stay at his position of SS.

#88 Don Joseph- LHP (Houston)
Joseph is a Junior pitcher out of Houston. Pitched relief for Houston and was 3-1 with a 2.16 ERA over 50 innings with 75 strikeouts for the Cougars. Joseph has a fastball in the low 90's with some decent breaking pitches.
