The 2013 MLB draft is only a few weeks away. And even though the MLB doesn’t bring as much hype to the event, there’s plenty of fans still anxious to see who the Cincinnati Reds will take in Round 1.

Many experts believe this first round will be heavily filled with pitching and catching prospects. MyMLBDraft.com has 17 pitchers going in the first round along with three top catching prospects.

The Reds might follow suit with their two previous drafts and pick a young hurler again.

Here are the five past overall first-round picks by the Reds (per baseball-reference.com): 

2012: Nick Travieso RHP (14th overall pick)

2011: Robert Stephenson RHP (27th overall pick)

2010: Yasmani Grandal C (12th overall pick)

2009: Mike Leake RHP (eighth overall pick)

2008: Yonder Alonso 1B (seventh overall pick)

This year, the Reds will start with the 27th overall pick in the first round, 38th pick in the Competitive Balance Round A, 67th in Round 2 and 104th in Round 3.

With the least to most likely, here are the projected top five first-round draft pick targets for the Cincinnati Reds.
