The Cincinnati Reds are building toward a solid future, and a touted farm system is at the forefront of that.
It’s been a rough few years for Cincinnati Reds fans, as the team has fallen a long way from 2012, when they won 97 games and had the second best record in the majors. Two of the last three seasons, the Reds had the second worst record in the majors. This past year, they had the fifth worst record and didn’t improve on their win total from the year before.
One benefit from the bad records is the high draft position that comes with it. So far, the Reds have drafted the current top three prospects in their last two drafts.
They have a farm system which ranks in the top ten in baseball, and five prospects in the Baseball America top 100.
There is major league talent at each position, and all should be there within a few seasons.
But all this talent can beg the question, who is the best prospect at each position?
