There is so much risk involved in the MLB Draft. Very rarely will you hear the words “sure thing”. However, what the Cincinnati Reds did on Day 2 was add power to their farm system and acquire some valuable assets that will hopefully contribute at the big league level in the future.
The Cincinnati Reds picked up the consensus best pitcher in the draft on Day 1 when they selected Nick Lodolo with the No. 7 overall pick. With the 49th overall selection on Monday, Cincinnati went with a power-hitting infielder in Rece Hinds.
