    Moscot will pitch this year, as I understand it. Obviously he goes to Louisville.
    He's probably Tim Adleman (v2) but he was a 4th rounder. He won't miss many bats but if he can pitch, he has to be in the stable.

    Senzel will be up this year, maybe in September. I doubt he's on the big club before then.
    Winker and Ervin will see big-league pitching this year.
    Mahle will likely start with Louisville but that's just a guess. I think the Reds want to see Disco and Finny pitch first.

    The Siri analysis is interesting.

    Fansgraphs has Jose Siri ranked pretty high by comparison to the MLB top 30.

    With the Reds track record of developing outfielders I'd be more inclined to believe the MLB #22 ranking. But I'd much rather see the Fansgraphs projection become reality.

    Siri is only 22, so there's time on him.

    Jose Siri has been a little slow to develop, but that's fairly normal for International players signed as teenagers. He does have three option years, but he's also never played above A ball. He needs to keep improving because a step back is a step closer to becoming Yorman Rodriquez at this stage of his career.

    2017 was a breakout year for the kid. Everything I've heard about him suggest he has the tools. Now we're going to find out if he has mental discipline to get the most out of his natural talent.

    We need to be patient, I suppose. Not many Reds prospects on that list have played at AAA level. That means not many if any, are going to come rescue the team in spring training. I would guess on any kid below AA...because you just don't know if they can hack higher level competition yet, or if they are going to be derailed by injury and/or substance abuse before they get to MLB. Tyler Greene was one of the top 2-3 prosepcts in the ametuer draft...hell of an arm...he may be 3 years away though...or not, if he can throw strikes and mix a crooked pitch in occasionally... unless they want to turn him into a .230 hitting shortstop.

    HUNTER Greene...sorry. Isn't that also a color at Sherwin Williams ?

    I would imagine his agent is already on it!
