Cincinnati Reds minor league spring training is officially underway. Unlike past years it’s shut down to the public, so you can’t go hang out and watch what’s happening on the backfields at the spring training complex. But if you were able to do that, here are the players you would be able to see:

There are a few things worth noting here. First is that Braylin Minier, one of the organizations top prospects from the 2019 international signing class is in Goodyear at just 17-years-old. He’s easily the youngest player in spring training for the organization. Colombian catcher Andruw Salcedo is the next youngest player, and is nine months older. Both players have yet to make their professional debuts. Cuban infielder Michel Triana is also in Goodyear and along with Minier was a part of a big signing of prospects in the 2019 international class.

There are also a few names on the list that we haven’t seen much of lately. Nick Howard was the Reds #1 pick in 2014. After battling the yips, and then undergoing shoulder surgery, he was eventually released and signed with the Kansas City Royals. After not pitching in 2020 because the year was cancelled he re-signed with Cincinnati in the offseason as he looks to make a comeback. Ryan Olson had to retire after a back injury. A former top 25 prospect in the organization, Olson is now back after getting cleared to return to baseball. Nick Hanson was the teams 3rd round pick in 2016. Injuries have kept him off of the mound ever since, or at least close to it. He threw 16.0 innings in his debut. Then he missed all of 2017, threw just 4.0 innings in 2018, missed all of 2019, and then of course he missed all of 2020.

This roster doesn’t include the guys that are at the alternate site in Louisville. That group played their first scrimmage game last night against the Royals alternate site team. Sonny Gray started that game and allowed two runs in 4.2 innings with six strikeouts.

    What happened to Mac Wainwright. I see he was placed on restricted list.

  2. RojoBenjy

    Is Brantley Bell sticking around until he can go into the family business?

      • RojoBenjy

        Of course. But I was thinking about eventual coaching.

        What are his chances of even getting a cup of coffee before then?

      • MK

        He actually did coach with his dad this past fall in one of those independent league’s fall mini league in Texas.

  3. Greenfield Red

    It is good to see Nick Hanson is still in the organization. I remember when he was drafted he was thought to have a good deal of upside. I hadn’t heard anything about him for a couple of years. Anyone know how he is progressing?

  4. IMHO

    Any news on who didn’t make the cut would be appreciated…

    • Doug Gray

      I’d guess we see fewer releases/cuts than usual in spring training because the rosters are expanded this year.

  5. Dave Goldstein

    Watch Randy Wynne P, He upped his ball speed by 3-4 MPH thru mechanics 4 solid pitches He has a 17 Batter S/O game already. Grinded up the ladder of lower level ball. All around nice kid and good man, team first player.
