The Cincinnati Reds have made their first roster cuts of the spring. Minor League camp officially begins tomorrow with everyone having to report on the minor league side. Juan Duran was optioned to Pensacola and Yorman Rodriguez was optioned to Louisville.

Which Reds prospect has the best opposite field power?

One of the things that I include in the Prospect Guide each year is spray charts that include the average, slugging percentage and isolated power to each part of the field for hitters that wind up in the Top 40. What those numbers are to the outfield spots are really the only ones that are important. While a few players did double on balls to the shortstop or second baseman (pop...

Who will the Cincinnati Reds call up in September?

September is approaching and one of the strange things about baseball is that when it rolls around the rosters expand. No other sport operates like that and it’s a rather confusing rule. The fun part for people like you and I who follow the minor leagues so much is that we get to see new faces come up and maybe even get some playing time after the minor league season is over.

Prospect Watch: Juan Duran continues to crush the ball

The Louisville Bats lost on Saturday night, but it wasn’t for a lack of effort on the part of Felix Perez who remains as hot as an be, going 3-4 with a double.
