Community top rookies for future performance number 15

A lot of different opinions among us last round as nine different players got at least one vote. But, Devin Mesoraco got the most, with 28% of the vote, making him the number 14 rookie from last year's class for expected future performance. Trailing were Todd Frazier 17%, Anthony Gose 11% Tom Milone 11%, with Willin Rosario, Starling Marte, Erasmo Ramirez, Wade Miley and Chris Carter all checking in at 6%. Jean Segura didn't get a vote.

1. Mike Trout Outfielder Los Angeles Angels (83%)

2. Bryce Harper Outfielder Washington Nationals (100%)

3. Manny Machado Infielder Baltimore Orioles (47%)

4. Matt Moore, Pitcher, Tampa Bay Rays (45%)

5. Yu Darvish, Pitcher Texas Rangers (48%)

6. Yoenis Cespedes, Outfielder Oakland A's (50%)

7. Andrelton Simmons, shortstop, Atlanta Braves (27%)

8. Matt Harvey, Pitcher New York Mets

9. Jarrod Parker, Pitcher Oakland A's (50%)

10. Jesus Montero, Catcher/dh Seattle Mariners (40%)

11, Yasmani Grandal, catcher, San Diego Padres (44%)

12. Yonder Alonso, First Base, San Diego Padres (32%)

13. Anthony Rizzo, First Base, Chicago Cubs (24%)

14, Devin Mesoraco, Catcher Cincinnati Reds (28%)

I'm going to temporarily drop Jean Segura, but he remains eligible as a write in as are the other players on the temporarily dropped list.

Temporarily dropped: AJ Griffin 0% (round 10), Ryan Cook 0% (round 11), Lance Lynn 0% (round 12), Randall Delgado 0% (round 12), Zack Cozart 0% (round 12), Mike Fiers 0% round 13, Jean Segura 0% (round 13)

I'm going to add Drew Smyly and bring back Will Middlebrooks this round. I'm going to get AJ Griffin back on the ballot next round. the ballot next round.

In no particular order, Kelvin Herrera, Lucas Harrell, Michael Gonzalez, Norichicka Aoki, David Cooper, Robbie Ross and Brett Jackson, are among those I am looking at adding in the coming rounds. Please suggest more names, or your favorites among that group, below. Keep in mind though, that the plan is to go out to # 25 in this poll and then stop, and between those who have been voted in, those on the ballot, those who are temporarily dropped and the names listed immediately above we already have far more than 25 under consideration.

So, who do you think will have the best future performance among last year's rookies in the number 15 slot?
