    2019-2020: RedsZone's Top Reds Prospects Poll Results

    Rank - (Position) Player Name - Acquisition Notes - Including draft round and draft year. ($bonus - school (home state)). And most recent stat line.
    #1 - (LHSP) Nicholas Lodolo - The Reds 1st round draft selection in 2019 ($5.43M bonus - (JR) Texas Christian University (CA)). The tall lefty amassed a 6W-6L record with a 2.36 ERA in 16 GS as a 21 year old with TCU and then a 0W-1L record with a 2.45 ERA in 18 IP at RK/A level ball during the 2019 season.

    #2 - (RHSP) Hunter Greene - The Reds 1st round draft selection in 2017 ($7.23M bonus - HS (CA)). He missed the entire 2019 season after undergoing TJS this past April, he'll likely miss the beginning of the 2020 season as well. In 2018, he posted a 3W-7L record with a 4.48 ERA in 18 GS as an 18 year old with A Dayton (he was one of the youngest players in the league at the time).

    #3 - (C) Tyler Stephenson - The Reds 1st round draft selection in 2015 ($3.14M bonus - HS (GA)). The right handed hitting catcher hit .285 - .350 - .390 as a 22 year old in 89 games (312 PA's) at the AA level during the 2019 season. Defensively he managed to throw out 28 of 104 potential basestealers, a 27% CS rate.

    #4 - (SS) Jose Garcia - The Reds signed Garcia as an International Free Agent in June 2017 ($5.00M bonus & a $5.00M overage fee - INT (Cuba)). The right handed hitting shortstop hit .280 - .343 - .436 as a 21 year old in 104 games (452 PA's) at the A+ level during the 2019 season. Defensively he started 100 games at SS and finished the season with a .943 FLD%.

    #5 - (3B) Jonathan India - The Reds 1st round draft selection in 2018 ($5.30M bonus - (JR) University of Florida (FL)). The right handed hitting third baseman hit .259 - .365 - .402 as a 22 year old in 121 games (512 PA's) at the A+ & AA levels during the 2019 season. After dabbling a bit at shortstop with the Reds in 2018 he spent the 2019 season almost exclusively at the hot corner (small sample of 5 games at second base).

    #6 - (CF) Stuart Fairchild - The Reds 2nd round draft selection in 2017 ($1.80M bonus - (JR) Wake Forest University (WA)). The right handed hitting center fielder hit .264 - .352 - .441 as a 23 year old in 109 combined games (460 PA's) at the A+ & AA levels during the 2019 season. Stuart's stock got an added boost due to his showing in the AFL, he's shown to be a solid defensive CF'er but his drop in stolen bases last year is disconcerting.

    #7 - (RHSP) Antonio Santillan - The Reds 2nd round draft selection in 2015 ($1.35M bonus - HS (TX)). The big bodied right hander took a step back this past season, he had a 2W-8L record with a 4.84 ERA in 21 GS as a 22 year old at the AA level and spent time on the disabled list with a tricep strain. But that was still solid enough to warrant the Reds adding him to the 40 man roster.

    #8 - (CF) Michael Siani - The Reds 4th round draft selection in 2018 ($2.00M bonus - HS (PA)). The left handed hitting center fielder has yet to hit for power but he was able to put up a league average .253 - .333 - .339 batting line in 121 games (531 PA's) this past season as a 19 year old at the A level. Siani comes with a ++ rating in speed and defense.

    #9 - (RHSP) Lyon Richardson - The Reds 2nd round draft selection in 2018 ($2.00M bonus - HS (FL)). The former two-way standout posted a 3W-9L record with a 4.15 ERA in 26 GS as a 19 year old at the A level in 2019. He sports a mid 90's fastball, a so-so slider (which is showing improvement) and a so-so changeup; he carries a #3 starter ceiling.

    #10 - (2B) Tyler Callihan - The Reds 3rd round draft selection in 2019 ($1.50M bonus - HS (FL)). The left handed hitting middle infielder hit .263 - .298 - .442 as a 19 year old in 57 RK games (238 PA's). Callihan started 20 games at secondbase and started an additional 31 games at thirdbase.

    #11 - (3B) Rece Hinds - The Reds 2nd round draft selection in 2019 ($1.80M bonus - HS (FL)). The ight handed hitting big bodied third baseman only suited up for 3 games as an 19 year old in RK ball last year. Defensively speaking he's got the arm to stay at 3B but he's probably going to struggle with his footwork out of the gate - if he moves off 3B it's likely to 1B/LF or possibly RF.

    #12 - (RHSP) José De León - The Dodgers 24th round draft selection in 2013 ($0.04M bonus - (JR) Southern University (Puerto Rico)). De Leon is only a few days shy of amassing 2 years of big league service time, but he still qualifies for these rankings because nearly all of that time was spent on the DL recovering from TJS. Jose had a 2W-1L record with a 3.54 ERA in 56 IP as a 26 year old at the AAA level in 2019 (in addition to a small cup of coffee in the bigs).

    #13 - (RHRP) Joel Kuhnel - The Reds 11th round draft selection in 2016 ($0.13M bonus - (JR) University of Texas at Arlington (AZ)). Kuhnel posted a combined 5W-3L-14SV record with a 2.18 ERA over 54 IP as a 24 year old at the AA & AAA levels in 2019 (in addition he saw action in 11 big league games). The power righty is big league ready; sporting a 100 mph fastball, plus slider, and a so-so changeup.

    #14 - (OF) Terry Friedl - The Reds signed Friedl as a Non-Drafted Free Agent in August 2016 ($0.73M bonus & a $0.45M overage fee - (RS-SO) University of Nevada (CA)). The left handed hitting outfielder managed to hit .235 - .347 - .385 as a 23 year old in 65 games (269 PA's) at the AA level in 2019. He struggled with a right shoulder injury and tendinitis in his right ankle.

    #15 - (CF) Jose Siri - The Reds signed Siri as an International Free Agent in September 2012 ($unk bonus - INT (Dominican Republic)). The center fielder hit a combined .237 - .300 - .357 as a 23 year old in 101 AA games and an additional 30 AAA games (517 PA's combined) in 2019. He's a plus defender with good range and a strong accurate arm, thus should stick in CF for the foreseeable future. Plate discipline is his Achilles heel, as he swings at a lot of balls/doesn't take enough pitches.

    #16 - (CF) Jameson Hannah - The Athletics 2nd round draft selection in 2018 ($1.80M bonus - (JR) Dallas Baptist University (TX)). The left handed hitting Hannah hit .274 - .339 - .369 as a 21 year old in 110 games (492 PA's) at the A+ level during the 2019 season. Jameson is a plus defender and has average to plus contact skills at the plate but he is small bodied which typically doesn't bode well for further power production.

    #17 - (RHSP) Vladimir Gutierrez - The Reds signed Vlad as an International Free Agent in September 2016 ($4.75M bonus & a $4.75M overage fee - INT (Cuba)). The right handed starter pitched to a 5W-11L record with a 6.04 ERA as a 23 year old in 27 AAA starts in 2019 (his first 10 starts he carried an 8.43 ERA - over his final 17 starts he carried a 4.80 ERA). His repertoire consists of a plus curveball, an average to plus mid 90's fastball, and a changeup that is not currently big league ready. Many scouts see him as a middle reliever in the future, but there is still hope he sticks in the rotation.

    Re: 2019-2020: RedsZone's Top Reds Prospects Poll Results

    To whom it may concern:

    Unless something changes, from here on out new polls will launch every Sunday night at ~11 pm and last 96 hours, and then every Thursday night at ~11 pm and last 72 hours. The poll question won't allow me to pick 3.5 days as a time-frame.

    Our top 30 should be done by March 2nd, assuming I don't miss any posting times.

    Re: 2019-2020: RedsZone's Top Reds Prospects Poll Results

    For the record, if there is a tie there will not be any runoff voting. I'm going to put them into the rankings (example) as 4t. Joe Schmo and 4t. Joe Blow and then move on to the #6 vote.

    I know that isn't a perfect solution, but the number of people voting for the #3,4,5 and so on candidates in a specific poll isn't going to be a big enough number for me to worry about it.

    One way we have used to break ties, other than a run-off, is to use who had gotten the most votes in the prior round. Ex Players A and B tie for 6th but in round 5 A had more votes than B, So A gets slot 6. Something to consider.

    It's not a bad thought, but what if one of the two is in the poll for the first time (as in I just added them)? I'm just going to keep it simple the "#t" as a rule won't kill anyone.

    Re: 2019-2020: RedsZone's Top Reds Prospects Poll Results

    The Top 5 were pretty much all no doubters, from here on out the polls should be closer - as I expect more than 2 or 3 prospects to be getting votes in each poll.

    I'll be adding a number of players within the next week or so as selections. As always, if you vote other, make sure you notify me of whom the vote is for or it won't count.

    Re: 2019-2020: Who is the Reds #8 Prospect???

    BUMP. Mike Siani is the Reds top defensive farmhand per MLB Pipline:
    Reds: Mike Siani, OF (No. 8) Siani may have been the best defensive outfielder in the 2018 Draft and he’s more than lived up to expectations in center field in his year-plus as a pro. He has outstanding range and instincts, with excellent reads and routes, and he used his plus arm to rack up 18 assists during his first full season in 2019.
