    Saw you had Ozzie Albies at #12. What present or future major leaguer(s) would you compare him to?

    1:08 Kiley McDaniel: There isnít a comp, but thereís elements of Furcal and Lindor and Luis Castillo. Take the best from each of those and you get the idea.

    Sounds like some in the Braves org have soured on Peraza a bit, how do you view him at this point?

    1:11 Kiley McDaniel: 50 FV, solid, MLB-ready player with clear shortcomings he’s never really addressed

    Oh…. this is awkward

    1:11 Comment From Matt
    Allard, Soroka, and Riley are a heck of a first round haul for Atlanta. Do they have each have a shot at a future top-100/200 list?

    1:12 Kiley McDaniel: Sure. Allard will be in a nice spot this year if he stays healthy. The other two probably need a good 2016 to get into a nice spot on the list

You are probably correct in my reflection being short sighted based on sample size, but my opinion is still rooted deeper more so because of my disagreement of the deal. I was a huge Peraza fan and still can't understand his inclusion. Hopefully, again, Olivera gets going and can provide 4-5 years of solid production.
    I like Peraza as well, but honestly finding MI prospects who have a slick glove and speed, but can't draw a walk or hit for power is not hard to do. There have been plenty who have come and gone over the years.
