Cincinnati Reds Top Prospects
The year 2016 was another lost season in Cincinnati. The Reds played to a 68-94 record, ended up 35.5 games out of first place, and Great American Ballpark was a ghost town by the end of July. Fortunately, not all was lost. Adam Duvall and his 33 home runs were a nice story, Billy Hamilton continued to run wild, and Joey Votto was Joey Votto. In addition to that, there are a few young pieces who could contribute to the next winning Reds team: 22-year old Jose Peraza was above average at the plate, 24-year old Eugenio Suarez slugged 21 homers, and pitchers Brandon Finnegan and Anthony DeSclafani look like they can become assets to this team’s rotation for the foreseeable future. That being said, the heavy lifting of this rebuild is yet to come and the Reds will turn to their farm system in order to get back on track.
