The Cincinnati Reds may have caught lightning in a bottle with 28-year-old career minor leaguer Kristopher Negron, but here are the five true Reds prospects who may be called up by August and stay on the roster for most of the rest of the season to help the team contend in the NL Central.
Catcher Tucker Barnhart has already been up and down on the Cincinnati Reds roster a couple times this year, but he is likely to be a more permanent addition in August to help the team contend in the NL Central.
Power right-handed pitcher Curtis Partch has made 18 appearances for the Cincinnati Reds over the past two years, but he may find himself a preferred roster option over one or more of the Reds' relievers by the start of August if they are going to put their best bullpen together to vie for the NL Central.
David Holmberg was much worse than just underwhelming in a July spot start he made for the Cincinnati Reds, but the lack of left-handed relievers in the Reds' bullpen should mean that Holmberg will find a roster spot as a middle-innings situational reliever and mop-up man during the playoff push.
Donald Lutz is currently on the Cincinnati Reds' roster and may find himself shuttled back and forth before he finally becomes a roster mainstay for the NL Central push as the primary first baseman.
The next time the Cincinnati Reds need a spot starter, 22-year-old Michael Lorenzen should get the call from Double-A. He could find himself a rotation mainstay for a NL Central push should injury once again strike the Reds' starting unit.
