Ranking the Reds 40-man roster: Who is No. 35 through No. 31?

35. Luke Maile, Reds catcher

Luke Maile will be one of three catchers to break camp with the Cincinnati Reds. After seven catchers saw playing time with the Reds last season, general manager Nick Krall made it a point to add depth to the position during the offseason. Look for Maile to start one or two games per week.

34. Connor Overton, Reds pitcher

Connor Overton does not subscribe to the current type of pitching that seen throughout Major League Baseball. Last year's rookie relies on pinpoint accuracy and control rather than velocity. Time will tell if that strategy pays off in 2023, but he will be part of the Reds rotation to begin the season.

33. Levi Stoudt, Reds pitcher

Levi Stoudt could quickly move up this list if he plays up to his potential. The right-hander was part of last season's trade with the Seattle Mariners and Stoudt competed for a spot in the Reds starting rotation this spring. The right-hander will begin his 2023 season at Triple-A Louisville and look make his way to the big league sometime later this year.

32. Brandon Williamson, Reds pitcher

Brandon Williamson joined the Cincinnati Reds organization last spring after being acquired from the Seattle Mariners in a deal that sent Eugenio Suarez and Jesse Winker to the Pacific Northwest. Williamson found himself in a battle with several veterans for a spot in the starting rotation, but after falling out of favor, the southpaw will start the 2023 season in Triple-A.

31. Noelvi Marte, Reds infielder

It would appear that Noelvi Marte has a bright future. Marte was the key piece of the Luis Castillo trade with the Seattle Mariners last summer. Marte will be learning a new position (third base) this season, and fans are unlikely to see him on a major league field until 2024. Marte will begin the year at Double-A.
