Earlier today John Sickels of Minor League Ball released his Top 200 Prospects List and it was noted that it wasn’t the best showing for the Cincinnati Reds. Well, the Baseball Prospectus list was also released today and their Top 101 Prospects is also not a good look for the organization.

Among the 101 prospects listed there are only two Cincinnati Reds among the list. Third baseman Nick Senzel ranked 20th overall on the list. He’s followed up closely by left handed starting pitcher Amir Garrett who comes in ranked 32nd overall. On the Top 10 prospects list by the same group, Jesse Winker and Robert Stephenson would be next in line among the Reds prospects, but neither was able to crack the Top 101.

As was noted in the Sickels list article, there’s a lot of variance among the national writers on where the Reds farm system is, and just where the players inside the organization are. Scout.com also released their Top 100 Prospect list today, and it looks a little bit better for the organization. Generally speaking, it’s not been on par with the lists by Baseball America, Baseball Prospectus, ESPN, MLB.com or John Sickels.

I only know one of the contributors to the list, but he’s knowledgeable enough to the point that I’d say it’s worth taking a look at. On the Scout.com list there are four Cincinnati Reds prospects that make the Top 100. Nick Senzel once again leads the way at #24 overall. Amir Garrett follows for the Reds at #41 overall. Outfielder Jesse Winker comes in at #76 on the list and Robert Stephenson rounds things out for the organization at #97.

Four prospects in the Top 100 is a better look than two, but it once again illustrates the variance among national writers of where the current crop of prospects stand on the landscape of all of Minor League Baseball.
