Jackson Stephens – RHP

As an 18th round pick by the Reds in 2012 out of high school, Stephens has risen up the ranks quickly. As a 22-year-old in Double-A, he is ahead of the age curve of many players at the level. The Reds originally started out Stephens as a reliever in short season rookie ball, but has transitioned back to a starter as he has risen levels. Stephens commands his low-90s fastball well, but uses it and off pitches to miss bats for a K/9 number around seven for his Minor League career.
