The Reds minor league system took a significant step up in 2022 with the development of Elly De La Cruz and the acquisition of Noelvi Marte and Cam Collier. All three have a chance to be impact players, perhaps even stars at the highest level. Their pitching depth is a little shallow, but with the recent promotion of Hunter Greene and Nick Lodolo, they have two guys that can pitch at the top of the rotation. If they can add some pieces through free agency or have some of their other young players hit their ceilings, most notably Edwin Arroyo, Matt McLain, and Brandon Williamson, they could be on their way to contending.
