Top Prospect Alert - Brian Reith

By Robert Sherry

Brain Reith: The Yankees sixth round pick in the 1996 draft is probably the least known of the players sent by New York to Cincinnati in the Denny Neagle trade.

Standing at 6-foot-5 and 195 pounds, Reith has an above average fastball that could get better as this 22-year-old develops more strength. He possesses good control and has shown a good ability to change speeds.

Before the trade, Reith was 9-4 with a 2.18 ERA while pitching for Tampa in the Florida State League. Since the trade over to the Reds organization, Reith has gone 2-1 with a 2.88 ERA.

After Rob Bell and Ty Howington, the Reds system is thin of top-notch starting pitching prospects. Reith is someone who could turn out to be a steal if he can steadily rise through the Reds system. At this point
though, he is probably 2-3 year's away from battling for a spot in the Reds rotation.
