The Cincinnati Reds have drafted well in recent years. Between 2008 and 2012, the Reds selected players like Yonder Alonso, Dave Sappelt, Mike Leake, Brad Boxberger, Billy Hamilton, Donnie Joseph, Yasmani Grandal, Robert Stephenson and Nick Travieso.
Although they aren't all still members of the Reds' organization, some were used to bring in stars such as Jonathan Broxton, Mat Latos and Sean Marshall.
The MLB Draft is one of the most exciting times of the year for any devoted baseball fan. At the end of the 40th round, 1216 players had been selected. Given the sheer number of draft picks, it stands to reason that the scouting process is an arduous one at best.
The Reds selected five players in the first four rounds of the 2013 MLB Draft. They all bring their own unique skill set and could contribute greatly to the team's plans should they find a niche within the organization.
What exactly can we expect from these players? Well, to help answer that question, I've come up with a bold prediction for the future of each of these five players selected by the Reds.
