As the trade deadline approaches, the Cincinnati Reds are likely going to be in the buyer’s market.

The two main issues with that are adding major contracts to an already enormous payroll and owning a mediocre farm system that is ranked 15th overall in the majors per Baseball America.

However, the Reds' farm system has been on a steady increase since the early-'00s. Specifically, the 2010 Reds draft class has some possible hidden gems.

Catcher Yasmani Grandal, who was selected 12th overall by the Reds in the first round, was a major piece to acquire Mat Latos from the San Diego Padres in 2012.

The most famous name from 2010 was a non-draftee signing from Cuba. That year, the Reds won the bidding contest for the eventual two-time All-Star Aroldis Chapman.

Although every Reds fan knows of the Cuban Missile, who are some of the prospects from 2010 we might've forgotten about?

Starting from the deepest-round notable pick, let’s track some of the prospects from the 2010 Cincinnati Reds draft class.
