The 2021 Minor League Baseball season is over. Award season is just beginning, though. This week Minor League Baseball handed out their Postseason All-Star team awards for each league. The Cincinnati Reds had three players make the full-season All-Star teams for their respective leagues. Allan Cerda was named to the Low-A Southeast All-Star team. In the Double-A South both Lorenzo Cedrola and Wilson Garcia were named to the All-Star team.

Allan Cerda

In 2021 Allan Cerda began his season in Low-A with the Daytona Tortugas. He would play in 66 games with Daytona, missing a month between June and July, but put up big numbers in the pitcher-friendly league. Cerda hit .242/.362/.524 with the Tortugas. That included 14 doubles, 4 triples, 14 home runs, 42 runs scored, and 42 runs batted in. He was promoted to High-A Dayton late in August and spent the final month with the Dragons where he went on to hit .273/.356/.519 with 8 more doubles, a triple, and 3 more home runs.

Lornezo Cedrola

The Double-A South was hit-city for Lorenzo Cedrola. The outfielder led the league with 130 hits. He was also among the league leaders in several other categories as he posted a .320/.356/.461 line that included 16 doubles, 7 triples, 9 home runs, 68 runs scored, and 61 runs batted in. After completing the season with the Chattanooga Lookouts, Cedrola was promoted to Triple-A for the “final stretch” and played in 9 of the Bats final 10 games. He added 9 more hits, 3 more doubles, and his 10th homer of the season with Louisville.

Wilson Garcia

New to the organization in 2021, Wilson Garcia put together an All-Star season in the Double-A South with Chattanooga. He hit .290/.320/.468 on the season. He led the Lookouts with 18 home runs and also had 17 doubles, 44 runs scored, and had 64 RBI. Garcia finished 2nd in the league in hits (116) and RBI, while finishing in the top 10 in average, home runs, and slugging percentage.

    Cedrola doesn’t show up on MLB’s to 30 list so I have no idea how fast he is, I’m just assuming he’s fast since he played mostly in CF. I wouldn’t be surprised if he get som MLB time next year.

    It’s a bit frustrating to me that Jose Berrero has not joined a Mexican League Winter Team, because my understanding is that it is a curveball league. Jose needs more experience seeing and hopefully hitting curveballs. Especially since FO seems bound and determined to play him over Farmer next year.

      @reds future, what happened in the last month of the season that makes you think they are hell bent on playing Barrero ahead of Farmer? The reds literally played their best shortstop prospect since Larkin in centerfield so Farmer could play short.
