Very high ceiling. For the Bucs this is Christmas a few weeks early. An easy guy to put in the lineup 100+ games (perhaps as a platoon in 2011).

I would favor using a second round pick as well. Among the pitchers I like Adam Miller, Pelzer, and the pitcher from Durham (Rodriguez). Pelzer and Rodriguez would be fine in the pen. Miller is more iffy but possibly a fine starter.

Miller seems to have the highest upside of the eligible people and Emaus can immediately fill a need. With LaRoche and Young both released, Emaus would fill the need for a bench infielder with a decent bat. I really don’t want both Diaz and Ciriaco on the team.
