I am now working on the Boston Red Sox Top 20 prospects for 2018 list. The next team in line is the Cincinnati Reds, to be followed by the Seattle Mariners , Miami Marlins, Baltimore Orioles, Pittsburgh Pirates, Los Angeles Angels, and the Colorado Rockies.
Use this thread to discuss the Cincinnati Reds organization. Possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:
****The Reds finished 68-94, fifth place in the National League Central Division. What is your realistic expectation for 2018? Can they get closer to .500? In other words, exactly how far along is the rebuilding project?
****Lefty Amir Garrett: what do you make of him following his difficult rookie season?
****Right-hander Robert Stephenson: he was better than Garrett, but same question: what do you make of him? Is this someone you can build around?
****Lay out your timetable for 2017 first-rounder Hunter Greene. Where does he open 2018 and how fast are you willing to push him?
****I think Nick Senzel needs more attention, in the sense that he’s one of the best hitting prospects in baseball but seems to get less publicity than many of his elite counterparts. What do you think?
****Your take on Jesse Winker? Is that power surge real?
****As always, discuss sleeper prospects or anything else Reds-oriented.
