Today the Reds will draft rounds two through thirty. I am going to break it down into several posts to try and keep it all from an overload. Today the picks literally go about every 20 seconds, so there won’t be as much time for me to interact as the draft is going on, as the time in between the Reds picks will be used to get as much information on the players as possible.

Cincinnati Reds 2nd round selection: Ryan LaMarre, OF, Michigan

Scouting Report

  • More gap to gap power than HR power.
  • Good runner on the bases and in the field.
  • Profiles as a solid center fielder with good range due to the ability to read the ball well.

Thoughts

Not a fan of what happened with the plate discipline this season, but if he can return to where he was in 2009 with his strikezone judgement, I will be more in favor of the pick. Some places have called him a tweener and that makes me a little nervous for a second rounder out of college.
