Brandon Allen is a name that I am unfamiliar with. Can someone provide me some info on his? What type of player is he?

Thanks

A couple nuggets from the Atlanta Braves chat today with a few mentions of the prospects we got back in the Javier Vazquez deal...

Quote:
Q:
Where would Flowers have ranked, had he remained?
A:
Flowers would have been around 7th or 8th. His defense behind the plate still leaves a bit to be desired, but he is improving. Offensively, he's looking more and more like a monster.
Quote:
Q:
Is it safe to say that Flowers would have ranked among the top 10 if he hadn't been traded? Would any of the others? What type of upside does Jon Gilmore have?
A:
Flowers was in the top 10 prior to the trade. Brent Lillibridge and Santos Rodriguez were in the high teens to low 20s and Gilmore was in the 20s before joining the White Sox. Rodriguez is the sleeper of the group and could wind up having the most success. Gilmore showed signs of improving defensively at third base last year after playing short at an Iowa high school but there is some concern among many scouts about whether he will hit at higher levels.
