It's been rather difficult to keep up with where some of the Cincinnati Reds top prospect are ranked this season.

With Elly De La Cruz, Matt McLain, Andrew Abbott, and others finding their way to the major leagues, Cincinnati's farm system has been a bit of a revolving door.

On Thursday, MLB Pipeline updated their Top 100 rankings and, unsurprisingly, several of the outlet's names are part of the Reds organization.

Infielder Noelvi Marte headlines the top Reds prospects.

Noelvi Marte comes in as the Cincinnati Reds' highest-rated prospect. The former Seattle Mariners farmhand has been making his way through the Reds pipeline and is on the doorstep of the major leagues having reached Triple-A earlier this season.

Marte ranks among the Top 25 prospect in all of baseball and could make his major league debut later this season. Already part of Cincinnati's 40-man roster, it wouldn't be a shock to see Marte receive a cup of coffee in the big leagues once the calendar flips to September.

This year's first-round draft pick Rhett Lowder is seen by MLB Pipeline as one of the Top 50 prospects in the sport. Selected with the No. 7 overall pick, Lowder figures to fly through the Reds farm system and may make it to the major leagues next season.

Edwin Arroyo, who also came over from the Mariners, ranks among the Top 100 prospects in Major League Baseball as well. Still just 19 years old, Arroyo has been playing lights out for the Dayton Dragons this season.

Christian Encarnacion-Strand and Connor Phillips are both ranked among the Top 75 prospects in baseball. Though Encarnacion-Strand has made his major league debut, the contributors over at MLB Pipeline have certain markers that player must pass in order to move past prospect status.

Encarnacion-Strand looks like a keeper. The right-handed power bat has cut down on his strikeouts and has been hitting really well of late. Phillips has had some ups and downs since moving to Triple-A, but the right-hander has an outside chance to join the big league club later this season.
