It’s no secret that the Cincinnati Reds are in a full rebuild entering 2023. After post 100 losses in 2022, this 140-year franchise will look to lean on its young talent to make this franchise competitive in the National League Central once again. Luckily, there’s plenty of young and exciting talent throughout this Cincinnati Reds Top Prospects list thanks to recent trades over the last calendar year.
