After years of rebuilding, stopping short, and rebuilding again, the Reds are finally on the right path. Their young players are emerging, and now they have a core at the Major League level. The best news is that several high-end prospects remain that should help the team over the next few years.
Noelvi Marte should be the starting third baseman to begin 2024 and join a young and extremely talented infield. A little further away are some high-end pitching prospects, including 2023 first-round pick Rhett Lowder. Don’t sleep on Chase Petty or Julian Aguiar. Both have mid-rotation ceilings.
The playoff window officially opened in 2023 but should get into high gear starting next season.
- Top Prospect: Noelvi Marte
- Biggest Mover: Ricardo Cabrera
- Biggest Disappointment: Cam Collier – yes, I said it!
- Emerging Prospect: Alfredo Duno
