Down on the Farm: John Sickel's Top 20 Reds Prospects for 2010

John posted his Top 20 Reds prospects for 2010 last night, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist, or a Nobel PrIze winner, to figure out who is number 1 Reds prospect is.

Here is what John wrote about the Reds #1 prospect:

1) Aroldis Chapman, LHP, Grade A-: Could be a truly amazing pitcher if it all comes together, but there's obvious risk here given the need for cultural adjustment, as well as potential command issues.

He likes the Reds system and here is his comments:

Overall there are things for Reds fans to look forward to. Much of the major league core is young, and Chapman brings some excitement. On the other hand, I never did figure out what the point of trading prospects for Scott Rolen was, which kind of fits with the muddled theme amidst the bright spots.

Head on over to Minor League Ball to check out what he says about the rest of the Reds Top 20 prospects for 2010.
