    Top 10 pitching prospects for the Reds

    Just curious and looking for feedback. Who would you list as the top 10 pitching prospects for the Reds?

    I'll throw out some names:
    Stephenson
    Corcino
    Cingrani
    Guillon
    Travieso
    Rogers
    ......

    I'm kinda lost after that.

    Stephenson
    Corcino
    Travieso
    Cingrani
    Lotzkar (at the time I was only aware he hadn't had surgery after his arm injury at the end of the year, not that he was still having some issues with it. If I redid the list, he would be lower)
    Rogers
    Guillon
    Langfield
    Garrett
    Diaz

    Re: Top 10 pitching prospects for the Reds

    My shot at it

    Robert Stephenson
    Tony Cingrani
    Dan Corcino
    Chad Rogers
    Nick Travieso
    Ismael Guillon
    Tanner Robles
    Drew Cisco
    Radhames Quezada
    Dan Langfield

    some homorable mentions

    Big arms with potential: Amir Garrett, Sal Romano
    Track Records Overlooked: Pedro Villareal, Josh Smith
    Interesting Relief Options: Josh Ravin, Drew Hayes, Carlos Contreras, Curtis Partch, Chris Manno

    Wildcards due to health: Kyle Lotzkar, Jacob Johnson

    I'm sure I missed some and need more data about recent draftees.

    Moscot is the guy folks are overlooking, IMO

    I am a little surprised you don't have Villareal on the list because, if my memory is correct, as you mentioned him a few times as possible for being ready to spot start last year. Is he just closer and not as high a ceiling as some of your other guys?

    Correct. I think he could have a decent ceiling as a reliever, but as a starter he is probably a #4 with his ceiling. With that said, Villarreal is in that same group with the last two guys. Pretty interchangeable. Different pitchers with different qualities, but overall prospect wise, in that same 5 prospect range.

    Mostly that he hasn't blown-up yet. The top 6 (Stephenson, Cingrani, Corcino, Rogers, Travieso and Guillon) seem like they are way above the others and the rest require some angle IMO. Quezada has an ERA of around 3.35 in over 300 minor league innings. He'll be 22 next year and ready to move up to higher levels without being too old. He made 22 starts this year and was near the 100 inning mark. He just seems like a guy who could move into the picture with a good season and beyond the top 6, they are kind of all in that same boat.

    Why is Ravin a reliever if he has such good stuff? Wouldn't you keep him starting as long as possible? Wouldn't pitching more innings help him become more consistent? You can always switch him to the pen at a later date.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    They have let him start for years and years. He couldn't make it work.

    I didn't realize how good Langfield's line was before looking at this thread. Will he start in Dayton next year?

    He could. Perhaps Bakersfield. Probably depends on his spring.
