    Organizational Report-Pitching

    http://www.cincinnati.com/story/spor...ching/7067305/

    Inside the Reds' front office, they keep a chart of the years major leaguers are under contract and when to expect the minor leaguers to be ready to contribute at that level.

    What follows is an organizational depth chart showing, position by position, not only where the Reds are at the major-league level, but who they have coming through the ranks. The organization reports reflect not necessarily where prospects will start the season, but where the Reds feel those players will see the bulk of their time in 2014.

    The Enquirer enlisted the help of Jason Parks, the national prospect/player development writer for Baseball Prospectus, to evaluate the overall quality of the prospects at each position. Baseball scouts use a 20-80 scale sometimes shortened to 2-8, as we've done here in evaluating talent. Five represents major-league average.
    Lists what's at the Major League level, and then rounds up some players who could be at each stop along the way.

    The bottom line

    (7) Plus-plus. Excellent depth and several impact arms. Stephenson has a No. 2 ceiling.

    The bottom line

    (5) Average. Gullion is very interesting. Holmberg is a major-league arm.

    Stephenson has a 2 ceiling? First I have heard of him only have a #2 ceiling, from everything I've read during the last year they are predicting a dominant #1 for him.

    That is just Jason Parks opinion. Parks is a BP writer and prospect guru, and pretty good, imo, but I'd put Doug's opinion over his when talking Reds prospects.
    No - I am not from State Farm!

    Parks won't call anyone in the minor leagues a #1 guy.
