Pitching Top 50
The Reds landed three guys on the list: Robert Stephenson at #15, Tony Cingrani at #26 and Daniel Corcino at #27.
Hitting Top 50
Billy Hamilton was the only Red and came in at #7.
Love that Cincinnati has three of the top quarter of all pitching prospects. That's good odds of finding at least one league average or better starter. I really like Stephenson's arsenal, arm, et al. I also love Cingrani's numbers. Those of Corcino are nothing to sniff at either.
Still love Hamilton's upside and the recognition of respected national pundits that his bat looks to be at least okay at this point.
