The Cincinnati Reds instructional league begins in a few days. The players are scheduled to report to Goodyear on Sunday. The first workout will be on Monday. There will be a few weeks before they start playing games, though. Games will begin on October 2nd (more on this below).

First, let’s take a look at the roster.

Nick Senzel OF 23 Louisville

The biggest surprise, or at least the most noteworthy thing here is that Nick Senzel is listed as an outfielder. The Reds have spoken about possibly getting him time in the outfield in the future. Well, it would seem that the future is now. This isn’t terribly surprising. He’s big league ready when he’s healthy, but there’s not an every day spot open for him to play at either second or third base in the Major Leagues with the Reds right now. If he can handle some corner outfield spots – which there’s no reason to think he couldn’t, then it could open up the possibility of him playing a little bit of everywhere in 2019 without having a full-time spot at one single place on the field.

No one else on the Reds instructional league roster seems to be making the move to a new spot. The one other interesting thing from the look at the roster though is the inclusion of one player for the Dominican Summer League. Left-handed pitcher Jose Salvador is coming to Goodyear. The 18-year-old dominated for the Reds over the summer in the DSL. He made 12 starts and 2 relief appearances, posting a 1.18 ERA in those games. Over his 53.1 innings he allowed just 28 hits and no homers. He walked 20 batters and struck out 72 of the 205 he faced. You can see his entire stat line here.

All of the minor league coordinators and instructors, along with coaches from the teams throughout the year seem to be accounted for. Joel Noboa, the Latin American Field and Hitting Coordinator will also be stateside to help out. Eric Davis, Barry Larkin, and Mario Soto will also be there as instructors.
