The Cincinnati Reds are off to a slow start this season, finding themselves in last place in the NL Central with a record of 12-17 entering May.
However, entering this weekend’s series against the San Francisco Giants, there’s optimism in the Reds’ organization, and it has to do with a top prospect.
Per reports on Wednesday, top prospect (and former Tennessee star) Nick Senzel is set to be called up to the big leagues for the weekend series:
The Cincinnati #Reds have told Nick Senzel that he's being called up to the Major Leagues.

Senzel played for the Vols from 2014 to 2016, hitting .352 with eight home runs, 59 RBI and 25 stolen bases as a junior in 2016.
How will he fare with the Reds? We’re about to get our first look of the former Vol in the big leagues.
