Ranking the Reds 40-man roster: Searching for sustained success

20. Sam Moll, Reds pitcher

After landing in Cincinnati at the trade deadline, Sam Moll asserted himself as one of the most reliable relievers in the Reds bullpen. Will that same level of dominance carry over to the 2024 season? Reds fans are hopeful that it will.

19. Emilio Pagán, Reds pitcher

The Reds free agent acquistion will likely find most of his work in the seventh and eighth innings. Emilio Pagán kept the ball in the ballpark last season, and Cincinnati's front office is hoping for more of the same heading into 2024.

18. Noelvi Marte, Reds infielder

There may not be a player on the Cincinnati Reds roster with a higher floor than Noelvi Marte. By the end of the 2024 season, Marte could be one of the Top 5 players on the Reds roster. But with just 35 games under his belt, the 21-year-old still has much to prove heading into next season.

17. Brandon Williamson, Reds pitcher

If the Cincinnati Reds add a starting pitcher this offseason, Brandon Williamson would appear to be the odd-man out. However, Williamson put up solid numbers during his rookie season, and could easily be one of five starting pitchers to open the 2024 on the active roster.

16. Fernado Cruz, Reds pitcher

After the first game of the 2023 season, Reds fans were ready to throw the book at Fernando Cruz. But by season's end, the right-hander looked quite comfortable at the backend of the bullpen. Can Cruz put it all together in 2024?
