Teams throughout the Cincinnati Reds farm system are coming into the final games of the 2013 season. Players have proven just about all they can to this point, but some are still fighting for positions on the Reds' roster when they expand to 40 players on September 1st.
Certain prospects, including some on this list, already have a spot on the 40-man roster and will make their way to Cincinnati next week. Others used last week and this one as well as a springboard to the Queen City for the playoff stretch.
While there are several players on this list vying for spots on the 40-man, others are inevitably going to be left off in favor of other players. That's not to say they haven't had impressive seasons in their own right.
Players like Jesse Winker, Robert Stephenson and Phillip Ervin have been incredible. Unfortunately, they just aren't ready to take that big of a step.
In any event, it was a busy week in the Reds' farm system and some players have continued to prove their worth to the organization, while others are falling out of favor quickly.
Here's the weekly stock report for the team's top prospects.
