7. Didi Gregorius, Cincinnati Reds
A premium athlete who receives bonus points for being close to MLB ready, Didi Gregorius is a flashy defensive shortstop with a questionable offensive ceiling. At the plate, I like the way Gregorius’ hands work, but his grip-and-rip approach may need to be tempered some. Regardless, defense is Gregorius’ calling card and makes him a valuable commodity on the trade market should the Reds look to upgrade this off-season. Taking it one step further, would Cincinnati look to deal the steady Zack Cozart (2.7 WAR) to free up the shortstop position for Gregorius who’s four years his junior?
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
