Baseball season is now just a little over a month away. Cincinnati Reds pitchers and catchers reported to camp February 14, and it is time to look at the Reds' under-the-radar players to watch in 2014.
This is not a ranking for the longtime Reds like Johnny Cueto, Joey Votto or Jay Bruce. The players included here are not the star players but rather the role players who need to step up for the Reds to advance in the postseason.
Rankings were determined based off of each player's potential impact this season. For that reason, players with higher upside can be ranked above players with a lower ceiling.
Mike Leake and Zack Cozart were close to making the cut, but they were ultimately left off the list. This will be Leake's fifth season with the Reds, so I determined that he is no longer under the radar. Meanwhile, Cozart missed the cut due to his lack of offensive upside.
