Almost midway through the first month of the Major League Baseball season, it's time to evaluate how the position players for the Cincinnati Reds have done so far.
The Reds started out fast, but they have struggled lately. Their struggles have been in large part due to an inconsistent offense and a shaky bullpen. Cincinnati went 0-for-25 with runners in scoring position during the first four games of its five-game losing streak and scored a combined seven runs, with five of those coming in one game.
When this team is patient at the plate, it has been tough to beat.
Players on this list will be judged based on how they have done on offense and defense. Also, only players who have gotten significant playing time will be graded. Catcher Devin Mesoraco hasn't gotten enough time to be evaluated, and most of the bench has seen very little action.
Injuries are starting to take their toll on this team, so more players will need to step up.
After almost two weeks, let's take a look at how the position players on this team have done.
