Cincinnati On the first day, the Cincinnati Reds drafted four players. These picks covered the first two rounds. On the

first day of the draft, they selected two third basemen and a catcher. The next 18 rounds are yet to be

completed, but the first day went well for the organization. Cam Collier, who was almost universally rated among the

top 10, made it to the 18th round in what felt like a steal. Cam Collier, the youngest player in the draft's position

group, graduated high school in the first round and enrolled at Chipola Junior College to become draft eligible. He was

previously the highest-rated high school student. Cam Collier, despite not turning 18 until November, was a solid

performer at one of the top junior college baseball programs. He hit.333/.419/.537 and had 20 extra-base hits

as well as 25 walks and 32 strikeouts over 52 games. This third baseman might have the most powerful hit tools

in the draft. He has an above-average to plus power and plus arm and a strong, advanced approach at the plate. It

feels like deja vu all over again! Another young third baseman was Cincinnati's second choice on the night.

Sal Stewart is a graduate of Westminster Christian High School, Miami, Florida. He was one of the best

high school bats this year. Stewart is an above-average hitter with above-average to plus power and is well-known.
