PLAYERS: Tony Cingrani
TEAMS: Cincinnati Reds
by: Jon Davis Staff Writer @I_Bleed_RedsRed #6 Jesse Winker OF @therealJWink23 on Twitter The run on pitchers is concluded for the sixth best prospect in 2012 supplemental first round pick Jesse Winker. Winker is a 6-foot-3, 200-pound left handed outfielder, who was drafted out of Olympia High School in Florida, and will be only 19-years old come next April. Last year, in his professional baseball debut playing for Billings, he had a slash line of .338/.430/.500 in 275 plate appearances, showing off his offensive tools against much older competition. Winker can hit the ball hard to all fields and his power potential is expected to develop as he gets more experience. He has a very good approach at the plate, as seen by his 17.5 percent walk rate, and his 78 percent contact rate in his time in the Pioneer League.

ESPN writer touts Mat Latos as player on the cusp of stardom

There is a reason why the Reds gave up four players in exchange for the services of Mat Latos last offseason. The club fully expects Latos to blossom into one of the most dominant starting pitchers in the league. After 2012, he appears to be on the right track. The right-hander posted career-highs in wins (14), innings pitched (209.1), starts (33), and complete games (2) in...

Law pegs Aroldis Chapman as one of top MLB players under age of 25

It's no secret, folks, the Reds MLB roster is loaded with young talent under the age of 30. Jay Bruce, Joey Votto, Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Todd Frazier, Devin Mesoraco, Mike Leake, Jonathan Broxton, and Zack Cozart are just a few of the players who fit that bill.

Reds notebook: Latos, Phillips, Chapman, and more

Only 30 days stands between now and Feb. 12, which is the day pitchers and catchers are slated to report to spring training. There really hasn't been a whole of Reds-related news lately, and there probably won't be too much more before spring training begins either. Nonetheless, there are a few noteworthy nuggets floating around out there on the internet. Here is my attempt...

2012 Season in Review: Ryan Wright

Ryan Wright came into the 2012 season with some intrigue after a good showing in 2011 after being drafted in the 5th round. The Reds sent him to Dayton where he was the regular second baseman to begin the season. Wright began the season with a 5 game hitting streak before going hitless over the next two games. He would go on to hit .277/.346/.362 during the month with good plate...
