Baseball fans are focused on star players in the major leagues now that spring training is over, but the Cincinnati Reds have some prospects who could turn some heads this season.
Most of the team’s top prospects are working their way through the lower levels of the minor leagues. However, there are a couple of players who could make an impact in the majors in 2014.
Everyone in baseball knows about Billy Hamilton. He has been one of the Reds’ top prospects for a while now, and he will get a chance to play every day in the majors this year. The speedster is the team’s top position prospect, so he will be the player to keep an eye on.
This year’s list will have a drastically different look than last season’s. A few of the Reds’ most recent top picks are new to the list, and some players dropped off the list after disappointing seasons in 2013.
Let’s take a look at Hamilton and the other top prospects at the beginning of the 2014 season.
