2022 Red Reporter Community Prospect Rankings: Mat Nelson is your #14 Prospect!

2022 Red Reporter Community Prospect Rankings: Mat Nelson is your #14 Prospect!

Photo by Don Juan Moore/ The slugging catcher makes his appearance. After slugging his way through Florida State University, Mat Nelson was plucked by the Cincinnati Reds with the 35th overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft. The powerful swing paired with the ability to call a game behind the plate makes him an intriguing prospect in any scenario, but that he’s already turned 23 means he might be the kind we see on a bit of a fast-track should all go well. That was enough for you, the Red Reporter Community, to rank him #14th on this year’s Community Prospect Rankings....

MLB links - David Ortiz to the Hall of Fame, pitiful bargaining on MLB’s behalf

MLB links - David Ortiz to the Hall of Fame, pitiful bargaining on MLB’s behalf

Photo by Jim Davis/The Boston Globe via Wednesday news, notes, notes, and news. David Ortiz never once hit a homer off the Cincinnati Reds, yet still managed to waltz into the Baseball Hall of Fame last night as a first-ballot Hall of Famer. People who are elected into the Hall of Fame get to be called Hall of Famers, in case that repetitive first sentence didn’t tip you off to that fact. Yes, despite a respectable yet pedestrian 8 for 26 career with a trio of doubles and an intentional walk against Reds pitching, Ortiz became the lone player off the 2022 ballot to...

Jose Barrero leads four Cincinnati Reds on Baseball America’s Top 100 prospect list

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The farm, it looks fruitful! There have been many twists and turns in the professional development of Jose Barrero. His name change to honor his grandmother, his time in centerfield towards the end of 2021 (and what that could mean for his future), and just where he is on the prospect spectrum at the moment are just three, at the moment. Defining just who is a ‘prospect’ can even be difficult in some instances, something highlighted by Barrero’s prominent spot as the highest rated Cincinnati Reds farmhand in today’s latest...

2022 Red Reporter Community Prospect Rankings - Graham Ashcraft is your #5 prospect!

USA TODAY NETWORK Yet another promising pitching prospect atop the Reds system rankings. There’s something about 44 inning scoreless streaks that makes the spotlight on a pitching prospect just a little bit brighter. Such was the case with Graham Ashcraft of the Cincinnati Reds during the 2021 season, and his rise from High-A Dayton into AA Chattanooga allowed him to show just how much his heavy heater and groundball prowess looks to be an excellent fit at the big league level as soon as 2022. It was also good enough for him to eek out the victory in the voting for...

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports The Reds made a splash as the signing period officially opened.
