    Last year at this time there was concern that while the Reds were stocked with infield prospects, specifically SS prospects, There was a need for OF prospects.

    Fast forward one year and at the ML level Fraley, Friedl and Benson have proven capable.

    Prospects in my top 25 (since I have more OF in my top 25 than Doug has in his top 25):

    #6 Blake Dunn – Currently has a 1.012 OPS in AA.
    #10 Carlos Jorge – Recently promoted to A+ and has been on a tear the last week.
    #11 Hector Rodriguez – Also recently promoted to A+.
    #16 Jacob Hurtubise – Recently promoted to AAA and is currently posting an OPS of 1.096 there. For those who point to sample size his overall OPS this year is .973. For those who complain about his power his ISO is .170.
    #19 Rece Hinds – Currently has an OPS of .870 in AA. Signs of improved plate discipline this year.
    #24 Ethan O’Donnell – really a small sample size (87 PA) but what an impressive run. His OPS in Daytona currently sits at 1.117.
    #25 Esmith Pineda – He has not played full season ball yet but he is a prospect to follow.

    I have no idea where Lin Sheng-En (#23) will end up so I did not include him.

    My top 25 includes 4 SS, 3 3B, 7 OF, 8 SP, 2 C and Lin Sheng-En. This is a good distribution.

      Your #6, #16, and #19 are on the doorstep. There will be a OF roster crunch in 24, just like there has been an infield crunch in 23. I don’t think we’ve seen the full fallout of the infield crunch. 25 should be the pitching crunch, and that’s really awesome that we have so much talent emerging year after year. This team is setup to make a long run, and lets hope Krall knows how to sustain the run indefinitely.

    Hurtubise’s season has been nothing short of amazing. If he was 21 he would be a top 100 MLB prospect.

    • Matt

      Still an amazing season regardless. (Disclaimer, I know AA&AAA is not the same as MLB competition) BUT! His 10 triples would be tops in MLB right now. His 16.4 BB% would be 3rd, and his 14.1 K% would be tied for 13th. Impressive by anyone’s standards.

    • MBS

      I think power is weighted too much for Hurtubise to be ranked in the top 100, regardless of age. I care more about results, than ratings, and his results have been fantastic!

    @Stock – thanks for the summary. The Reds farm system really looks to be on more solid footing than just a year ago. A solid draft plan and quality international signings have buttressed the pipeline. Q: what are the ages of the OFers you listed & are they at the appropriate levels? Are any of them ahead of the age/level curve that makes you believe they will become quality ML level players?

    The farm system has fell to a .500 mark as a whole right now… All levels have been losing many games in a row even though there are 4 teams sporting winning records and another one completed the season on just .500. The Tortugas despite counting on several good prospects have the worst record at 16 games under .500 but the team don’t look as bad as they do..
    It’s incredible how the St.Paul Saints have crushed the Lousiville Bats pitching all season… I don’t have the exact stat but I think they have scored about 9-10 runs per game against the Bats…

      I’m not concerned about W/L records at this point. All levels have developed and graduated some very good players not only to the major leagues, but up levels. While the W/L record may not reflect that, the farm system is still producing which is what you truly want.

  5. Fred Johnson

    With AAA ( and AA to a lesser extent ) being robbed for MLB bodies I don’t know how important W-L records are. As long as these kids keep playing and improving the Reds’ future looks really Rosy.


    I keep hoping many of the minor league teams will stay above .500. Daytona started the season red hot, and might be the only team sub .500.
    Not a top 10 farm system any more, but we have some decent prospects still in the farm to plug some holes in years to come.
    Do we sign a mid to upper level FA SP or add a few to the bullpen this off season?
    I’m ok if they do nothing this off season, but a RP would be a nice addition.

      What makes it a less than 10 top system? Seems pretty Top 10 to me. All the players below could end up being Top 150 in the game at season end. thats pretty impressive.

      Noelvi Marte
      Christian Encarnacion-Strand
      Rhett Lowder
      Connor Phillips
      Edwin Arroyo
      Cam Collier
      Ricardo Cabrera
      Chase Petty
      Alfredo Duno
      Sal Stewart

    I’d like to see Louisville finish with a winning record. They haven’t had a winning record since 2011. Coincidentally, Bell took over as manager in 2012. The Bats had had 9 winning seasons and 2 losing seasons prior to that. They haven’t had a winning season since. Hopefully, this year changes that.

    At the beginning of the 2023 season, most people would have been surprised with how much Stewart has outperformed Collier this season. After watching Stewart for just a few weeks I am very encouraged by what I see. He is not only an athlete but is a baseball player who is an athlete.
