Round 3 Wrap-up

The rules are simple: Determine which player you think should advance to the next round by voting for that player. Arguments made for an advancing player in the comments section below may be used in that player's description for the next round. Vote subjectively, objectively or by using your trusty magic eight ball. Votes will last exactly 24 hours.

In this match-up:
57 - Andrew Aplin

Drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 MLB draft, Andrew Aplin made quick work of low A Tri-City being promoted to high A Lancaster after 44 games. Known more for his defense, in those 44 games at low A he posted a .978 OPS, showing more power than advertised. His ability to walk and not strikeout while providing solid defense in centerfield could mean a fast rise through the prospect rankings this season.

Vs

61 - Ross Seaton

Right-handed pitcher Ross Seaton made significant progress in his development last year between AA and AAA. In 169.1 innings he posted a 3.93 ERA as a starter for the two levels. Despite being drafted in the third round of the 2008 draft he is only 23 and still a prospect, he just missed TCB's top 30 prospect list by one spot. Continuing improvement in his development as a starter could mean a call-up to the majors at some point in 2013.
