Re: Reds Organizational Depth Chart
Right now, after the Bruce callup, I don't see the system providing a lot of offense in the next year. The real plus hitting prospects are still in A-ball. Valaika is probably the exception, but he seems to take time adjusting at each new level. Gutierrez is someone to watch with this OBP skills. Dorn as a possible platoon guy fairly soon, maybe.
On the other hand, the team really is loaded with high minors pitching prospects. Thompson, Maloney, Wood, Jukish, Lecure, J. Smith -- and then the relievers -- Roenicke, Watson, Manuel, Pelland, Herrera, possibly Viola, to name just some. That's a lot of guys.
