The 2013 campaign will mark the third professional season for Reds prospect Sean Buckley. Sean, who is the son of Reds scouting director Chris Buckley, was drafted by Cincinnati in the sixth round of the 2011 Draft out of St. Petersburg College.
He is currently listed by MLB.com as the eighth-best prospect in the minor league system and is expected to begin the year in Bakersfield with the Single-A Blaze.
The 23-year-old spent last year with Single-A Dayton and batted .244 with 14 homers, 28 doubles, and 68 RBI.
Chase recently had the chance to catch up with Sean and that conversation is detailed below. A big thanks goes to the 6-foot-4 slugger for taking the time to do this.
