Steve Finley
Roger Clemens

Reds management scouting during spring training
Finley played 9 seasons in Cincinnati were he roamed CF with great ease. Steve had six 30 plus home run season with the top mark of 42 in 2000. He was key member of the 2006 World Series team and an All Star in 2003. Fins as the locals call him was a fan favorite and could be counted on to play 160 plus games almost every year.
The Rocket was one of the most dominate picthers to every pitch in the NBC. Though his career has been tarnished by his morals, he holds many Cincinnati records. His 2703 strike outs in Cincinnati alone is jaw dropping. He won 186 games for the Reds and 2 World Series. He is a 4 time All Star and won 1 Cy Young award.

2017: 105-57 NL East champions. Draft position 25th.

Overview: The Reds had a strong team in 2017, ending with the top record in the National League. They ran into some hard luck in the divisional round vs the upstart Phillies and ended up falling short of team aspirations. The Reds have long been a team able to rebound quickly, willing to make the moves to get the pieces they need, or sell off if that doesn’t materialize. This time they went out and got Chase Anderson to take over the top spot in the rotation, Pat Neskak in the pen as well as a platoon catching option in Chirinos. These additions, as we will see, make a big difference in the outlook for the defending NL East champions.

Starting Rotation: The Reds typically have a strong rotation, making it a habit to go out and get one of the top pitchers available. Tanaka and Hendriks in past years and now this year Chase Anderson. Anderson steps in as potentially the number one pitcher and he will limit base runners well. It’s a bit of a guess on who will win the #2 spot. Possibly strong veteran Kyle Hendriks but don’t sleep on rookie Luis Castillo from getting his shot. Masahiro Tanaka will round out the top four and give the Reds a deep rotation. It has its flaws, namely the lack of a guy who can routinely go deep in the game. This should not be a big problem as it will allow for pinch hitting and then rely on the bullpen. Martin Perez, if he remains on the team, will round out the rotation and get a few starts for Castillo as he gains experience. This rotation can go toe to toe with many in the National League.

Bullpen: There are some big names at the back of this bullpen. The biggest is closer Aroldis Chapman. He has some flaws, as RHB will occasionally get to him but traditionally it is tough to take him deep. Raisel Iglesias is tough on RHB but will allow lefties to reach. However, he also stays away from the long ball and even limits extra base hits all together. Therefore, especially with a 2 or 3 run lead, the Reds shouldn’t be too concerned about relying on Iglesias. Hector Neris has had his name on the trade block all off season, but thus far no takers. He does struggle vs LHB, but really is not a terrible closer. Ideally, he would be used in the 7th inning to limit the damage. Still, he can be relied on to get out of a tough situation. Newly acquired Pat Neshak will handle the set up duties quite well. If the Reds left these four on the roster, some match up managing could really make this a deep bullpen. Lorenzen can handle a few innings should a starter leave early.

Starting Lineup: Joey Votto headlines this lineup, and will terrorize lefties and righties. His discerning eye will get him on base almost half the time. Adrian Beltre will act as the big RBI man behind Votto, especially vs LHP. Jay Bruce and Mitch Haniger can do so vs RHP and those four will get the Reds up early. Up the middle, Billy Hamilton can run in center. He won’t reach base as often as you’d like from a leadoff man, but none the less he can reach and when he does he will be on the move. Jean Segura will see the bulk of the time at short and Derek Dietrich and Jose Peraza will share 2B and utility duties. These guys hold their own offensively, but won’t be expected to rack up big RBI totals. Tim Beckham is likely the odd man out and could be dealt. Catching is a combo platter. Chirinos was acquired this off season to handle lefties, and he does that well. Tucker Barnhart likely will see the bulk of the time vs RHP, but depending on managements preferences Mesoraco could also showcase some power.
This Reds lineup has some holes, namely vs LHP in the outfield. There should be no shortage of home runs up and down the lineup.
Defense and Speed: Tucker Barnhart will see his fair share of starts behind the plate as he has the ability to stifle the running game. He might be the personal catcher for Luis Castillo. The outfield arms will have an effect on the base running, but the range of the fielders all around is nothing to brag about. Just average, save for Beltre at 3rd. Peraza, Segura and Hamilton can fly.

Surplus/Deficiencies: The Reds could really use an OF bat vs LHP, and maybe 1 more arm in the pen. Depending on how serious the Reds find their situation, they do have some pieces to trade. Martin Perez has been mentioned and so has Hector Neris. Robert Stephenson and Homer Bailey are also guys who are not helping a playoff team and could get moved, but it can be hard to find a motivated player on that market. The Reds do have Tim Beckham, a FT SS/2B, who should be helpful for the future as well.

Outlook: Even before the Reds add pieces in the draft, they can look at their team as potentially complete. They will add the smaller needs in the draft that push them far along the road to repeat NL East championships. For 2018, the Reds top divisional contender will be the Washington Nationals. Both teams have strong core of offensive players, although the Reds may find themselves a tad behind the Nationals from an offensive front. Whatever amount they are behind on offense, however, they make up for from the pitching side. This will make the Reds and Nats a very fun race down the stretch. With these games played FTF, the excitement should be paramount. Perhaps whoever ends up making the best decisions on draft day to supplement their shortages will find themselves with a leg up. Whichever team doesn’t wind up as division champs can get their revenge from the wild card slot.
