As I’ve mentioned previously, top prospects tend to be a rare breed at the Triple-A level. Triple-A players tend to be guys about which we have a pretty good idea, and if they’re really good prospects, they probably aren’t long for the level. So when a night features two top prospects on the mound, it’s a good idea to go. This time meant seeing Adam Morgan from the Phillies...
Daniel Corcino has struggled so far in 2013 for the Louisville Bats. His stats will point out just how much as he has a 10.29 ERA in 14 innings with 10 walks and 14 strikeouts. On the surface, the strikeout rate looks good, but given the amount of walks and hits allowed, his strikeout rate isn’t as high as it seems. In his last start in particular, the results were...
On Monday, Keith Law of ESPN.com published a list in which he ranked the farm systems of all 30 MLB teams. The Reds were tabbed as No. 12 on that list.
On Tuesday, Law continued his trend of ranking minor league talent by unveiling his list of the top 100 prospects in baseball. Low and behold, Cincinnati placed four players on that list.
Outfielder Billy Hamilton led the charge...
Corcino after tossing a dual no-hitter

Now we see a trend starting to develop with another pitcher at four: Daniel Corcino. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound, right hander was signed as an amateur free agent out of the Dominican Republic in 2008. In 2011, he jumped onto the scene pitching for Dayton and...
Daniel Corcino came into the 2012 season as arguably the Reds top pitching prospect after a strong 2011 year with Dayton. The Reds pushed him aggressively and skipped him over High-A Bakersfield and straight to Double-A Pensacola where he spent his entire season as an anchor in the Blue Wahoos rotation.
April didn’t start off particularly strong as Corcino allowed 3 runs in just...

This is basically the same as my last article, but only with prospects. The difference is one or a few of these guys might be traded very soon. This is not a list of which prospects are the best but a list of the value that other teams have for them. So keep that in mind before you start complaining that player A is much...
Not long after teammate Daniel Corcino threw eight innings of a no-hitter Tony Cingrani tossed a gem of his own. He established dominance early last night by striking out ten of hte first eleven batters faced. The left-hander finished the night with a franchise-record fifteen K's while pitching eight shutout allowing only three hits and walking one.
Pitches: Corcino has a fastball that works in the low 90’s and can touch 95-96 MPH. He throws a good slider in the low 80’s and a solid change up.
Mechanics: Very similar to the older Johnny Cueto before he began turning his back to home plate.
The game profiled below is the game from May 20, 2012. Corcino went 6 innings and allowed 2...
