After watching the New York Mets lay an egg in the Wild Card Round on Sunday night at Citi Field, he stage is now set for the 2022 National League Division Series.

The NLDS is sure to bring a great deal of intrigue in the coming days. Just like the ALDS will feature several familiar faces, the NLDS rosters are dotted with former Cincinnati Reds players as well.

The festivities begin on Tuesday afternoon in Atlanta as the defending champion Braves battle their division rival Philadelphia. The Phillies, led by Aaron Nola and Zack Wheeler, bounced the St. Louis Cardinals from the playoffs over the weekend. The other series will feature the San Diego Padres against their division rival, the Los Angeles Dodgers.

These former Reds will be playing in the 2022 NLDS.

Let's start with the Philadelphia Phillies and last year's All-Star outfielder Nick Castellanos. The prized free agent signee of the Cincinnati Reds' 2020 offseason opted out of contract last winter and signed with Philadelphia. Castellanos has had his struggles since joining the Fightin' Phils, but the slugger is still a key contributor for Philadelphia.

Taking a look at the Atlanta Braves roster, Brian Snitker will have the services of former Reds closer Raisel Iglesias available to him in the eighth and ninth innings. Iggy was traded to Atlanta earlier this summer. Adam Duvall is part of the Braves roster as well, but an injury will keep him off Atlanta's playoff roster.

The San Diego Padres knocked off the 101-win New York Mets on Sunday night, and while Brandon Drury hasn't really been a contributor during the postseason, it should be assumed that the former Cincinnati infielder will be part of the Friars' NLDS roster. Former Reds infielder Brandon Dixon was part of San Diego's playoff roster in Queens. Will he make the cut again?

Finally, there's the National League West Champion Los Angeles Dodgers who don't have single ex-Reds player on their 40-man roster. Slugger Justin Turner is a former sixth-round pick of the Redlegs, but the two-time All-Star never suited up for Cincinnati during his career.
