Romak is a big kid at 6-2, 200. The London, Ontario native has some pop and does a solid job of working the count. He probably was within the 20-25 range of the Braves top prospects. He batted only .247 at low-A Rome, but he's only 21 so there's still plenty of time for him to improve.

Pittsburgh GM David Littlefield said Triple-A SS Brian Bixler (ranked as the Pirates #5 prospect by Sickels) played a role in dealing Lillibridge. Bixler batted .302 last season in two minor league stops, but as you can see here, he's nowhere near the offensive player Lillibridge was. He looks more like a career utility guy.
