You can see Part 1 Here.  Again, I am going to be covering 8 players per day since the Reds signed 32 players and it makes it nice and easy to spread it out over 4 days.

Eighth Round – Juan Silva – OF

The Puerto Rican draftee was the best hitter on the GCL Reds this season and even got an honorable mention on the All GCL Team over at FirstInning.com. Silva hit .280/.372/.462 for the Reds in his debut.

Ninth Round – Brian Pearl – RHRP

Pearl had a strong debut out of the Billings bullpen where he posted a 3.77 ERA, had 10 walks and 43 strikeouts in 28.2 innings. Pearl had a very high 34.1% strikeout rate. His ERA was much higher than his 2.86 FIP.

Tenth Round – Tucker Barnhart – C

Barnhart was a late signing and only got 55 plate appearances toward the end of the season for the GCL Reds. He showed good plate discipline during that time with 6 walks and 9 strikeouts. Defensively he threw out 45% of the 11 baserunners who tried to steal on him.

Eleventh Round – Jacob Johnson – RHP

The 18 year old righty put up a 2.83 ERA and 1.13 WHIP over 47.2 innings for the GCL Reds in his debut. Johnson had a 56% groundball rate to go along with a solid walk (8.2%) and strikeout rate (19%).

Twelfth Round – Josh Garton – OF

Garton really struggled in Billings with a 32.1% strkeout rate that brought the rest of his numbers down. The outfielder hit .205/.271/.346 over 140 plate appearances.

Fourteenth Round – Timothy Crabbe – RHRP

The righty struck out 53 and walked 27 in 50 innings for Billings while posting a 4.86 ERA.

Fifteenth Round – James Walczak – RHRP

Walczak had an ERA of 3.64 over his 31.2 innings out of the Billings bullpen. The righty had a 56% groundball rate, 11.7% walk rate and 23.4% strikeout rate.

Nineteenth Round – Mitchell Clarke – LHP

Clarke only threw 12.1 innings for the GCL Reds this year but they were quite good. The right hander had a 65% groundball rate, 5.1% walk rate and 20.3% strikeout rate to go along with his 3.77 ERA.
