reds-900x635HE’S WHERE? For the most part, the Reds’ prospects begin the season right where they were expected to be. The logjam of outfielders at Triple-A means center fielder Ryan LaMarre will return for a second season at Double-A Pensacola. The most notable jump may be 2012 fourth-round pick Jon Moscot. The righthander out of Pepperdine skipped over low Class A Dayton and will begin the season with high Class A Bakersfield.

WHO’S MISSING: Righthander Nick Travieso, the club’s 2012 first-round pick, is being held back in extended spring training much like Robert Stephenson was last year. However, it’s possible that Travieso will join Dayton once the weather warms up. Righthander Dan Langfield was held back in extended spring as well as he recovers from a bout of shoulder tighthness.

GO SEE: Triple-A Louisville has three of the Reds’ top four prospects, with always exciting center fielder Billy Hamilton, lefthander Tony Cingrani and righthander Daniel Corcino.
