The Cincinnati Reds minor league spring training roster for 2023 is here. This roster will change from this initial list. Some players will sign and be added, and some players will be sent to minor league camp out of big league camp once we reach that portion of March – though it may be a little later this year with the World Baseball Classic taking place. There are 160 players that will be in Goodyear for minor league camp as of now. Here’s the list:

What is interesting here is the number of players who were in the Dominican Summer League last year who are making their way over for spring training. In the last few years there haven’t been that many who have done so, with those guys tending to come up to the complex once extended spring training began. Here are the guys who were in the Dominican Summer League last year who are making their way to Goodyear this spring:

  • Ricardo Cabrera
  • Ray-Jacson Chirino
  • Eddy Isturiz
  • Esmith Pineda
  • Brayan Rijo
  • Carlos Sanchez
  • Jesus Torres

Four other players saw action in both the DSL and Arizona Complex League last season:

  • Vladimir Davila
  • Juan Martinez
  • Jose Montero
  • Diego Omana

And then there are six pitchers who were in the DSL in 2021 but missed all of 2022 with injuries. I have not confirmed that these pitchers are healthy and will be pitching this spring. It’s possible that some (or all) could be in Arizona to continue rehab.

  • Oswaldo Castillo
  • Elkyn Chirinos
  • Eduardo Gonzalez
  • Juventino Gonzalez
  • Dualvert Gutierrez
  • Williams Yanez

    It’d be nice to see Jacob Heatherly and Jackson Miller healthy.

  2. Lee

    Do we know anything about what injuries were actually sustained by Jackson Miller? Or if he’s currently healthy?

  3. RedsGettingBetter

    I remember the time when Jay Allen II was arguably the next Reds #1 top prospect and Austin Hendrick was going to be his rival in that place…

    Was disappointed not to see Gus Steiger on the list as he hit .280+ at Daytona last year with a season ending injury. Looking him up, milb bio says he retired. Don’t know if it was injury or the middle infield competition. I had him penciled in for 2nd base at Dayton this season.

      None of them are in the Reds Media Guide, so I don’t know if they were released/retired, but they are no longer in the organization.

    The two pitchers the reds got from minor league rule 5 (Glogowski in draft + Wong via trading Sabol) both started in the minors last year. Is it too early to know if the Reds plan to start them or move them to the bullpen?

  6. Chuckles

    Slightly surprising to see Chase Anderson and Nick Martini on this list. As guys with MLB experience they obviously had to settle for minor league deals with no invite to big league camp.
