Report: Cincinnati Reds To Promote Another Top Prospect


The Cincinnati Reds have surprised the baseball world in 2023 as they've risen to the top of the National League Central standings on the back of some breakout stars, and now, they're adding yet another high value prospect into the mix.

Ahead of their crucial series against the San Francisco Giants, the Reds are promoting No. 5 ranked prospect (No. 88 in all of baseball) Christian Encarnacion-Strand, who has been absolutely mashing down in Triple-A this season. 

In 67 games thus far in 2023, Encarnacion-Strand is hitting an impressive .331 with 20 home runs and 62 RBI, and with Elly De La Cruz and Matt McClain already making a big impact, the Reds appear to be going all in with this young core.
