Re: Who is Redszone's #18 prospect?
Tim Crabbe. Very similar to Sulbaran IMO. Good fastball, strong second pitch (Slider for Crabbe, Curve for Sulbaran), strong K numbers, both seemed to get the walks under control and are about the same HR wise. Sulbaran is about a year and a half younger. If Sulbaran is 17, Crabbe should be next. Crabbe's ERA has been consistently lower than Sulbaran's.
Both these guys figure to be on the Reds staff in the next couple of years as some of the bullpen guys start to get expensive and as Arroyo's time in Cincy winds down.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
