Brodie Greene is one of my favorite prospects in the Reds organization. His game, along with his willingness to play multiple positions, reminds me of an Emilio Bonifacio type player with more pop.
Bonifacio plays a multitude of positions, so does Brodie Greene. Bonifacio has 40-stolen base speed, so does Brodie Greene.
Last season, in 126 games between A+ and AA, Greene went .287/.343/.433 with 14 HR, 81 RBI, 82 runs scored and 38 stolen bases. Keep in mind, that was only Greene's second professional season.
The big thing that catches my eye with Greene is his clutch hitting ability. In the 2010 Big 12 Championship, Greene hit the game-winning two-run home run that gave his Texas A&M Aggies a conference title. Clutch hitting is something that can't be taught and it's a valuable asset in a young player like Greene.
It's likely that Greene will remain at second base as he climbs through the minors and I believe, should Brandon Phillips not re-sign with the team, that Brodie Greene will be the starting second baseman for the Cincinnati Reds in 2013.
Even if Phillips does resign, there's a possibility that Greene could end up as a very useful utility player at the Major League level.
Greene will start the year right where he finished, in AA, but I believe he will make the AAA roster by season's end.
