I think the opposite. Reds are drafting guys who could help relatively soon. But many might be in backup, injury replacement, or role playing positions.
Keep in mind the Reds are active in getting young, high ceiling prospects from international scouting. So using the draft for mature, solid guys who could help soon makes sense.
