The Cincinnati Reds farm system is loaded. According to MLB Pipeline, the Reds minor leagues feature six of the Top 100 prospects (Matt McLain is part of this group as well) and a few guys who are on the cusp of being in the conversation as well. This farm system is deep and talented.

The depth doesn't stop at Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Louisville. No, it runs all the way down to Low-A Daytona. The Daytona Tortugas feature the Reds No. 5 prospect Cam Collier as well as fellow first-rounder Sal Stewart.

However, neither one of those big-name prospects has torn Low-A up quite like the Tortugas second baseman, Carlos Jorge.

This 19-year-old Reds prospect Carlos Jorge is tearing it up at Low-A Daytona.

Carlos Jorge is one of the Cincinnati Reds youngest prospects. The 19-year-old is two years younger than the average player in the Florida State League. Despite his youth, Jorge has an OPS of .920; more than 200 points higher than the average player in the FSL.

Jorge isn't a burner, but has shown plenty of speed by swiping 15 bags so far this season. Jorge has 15 three-baggers throughout his two-plus seasons of affiliated baseball. Speed is something you can't teach and it has translated very well. Jorge's wheels may be his best tool.

Jorge has shown improved power at the plate. He has four home runs and seven doubles in 2023. The power will continue to improve as he grows into his 5-foot-10 frame. Jorge is currently listed at just 160 pounds.

Carlos Jorge is incredibly young, but also incredibly raw. Given his age, Jorge ceiling is virtually unknown. With the glut of middle infielders currently on the roster, if Jorge has an Elly De La Cruz-type of trajectory through the minors, a position change may be in order, though arm strength is certainly a concern.
