Cincinnati Reds Players to Watch

OF Nick Castellanos

Arguably the Reds best player is Castellanos, who is enjoying a career year in his second season in Cincinnati. Selected to his first All-Star team this season, the 29-year-old is slashing .317/.376/.567 with 21 HR’s and 64 RBI’s.

2B Jonathan India

If Marlins starter Trevor Rogers isn’t the 2021 NL Rookie of the Year, an excellent case can be made for India. For the season, the rookie second baseman is slashing .280/.393/.471 with 16 HR’s, 55 RBI’s, and 8 SB’s.

1B Joey Votto

Votto leads the Reds in both HR’s and RBI’s on the season, and could make an excellent case that the veteran first baseman is their best player. Votto’s .944 OPS is also the highest among the Reds active players.

C Tyler Stephenson

Stephenson is enjoying a strong rookie season slashing .291/.376/.452 with nine HR’s and 38 RBI’s. The 25-year-old backstop is also enjoying a phenomenal month of August slashing .343/.385/.714 with four HR’s.

C Tucker Barnhart

Cincinnati’s other catcher in Barnhart is also enjoying a career season. The veteran backstop is slashing .268/.339/.419 with seven HR’s and 40 RBI’s.
