Nick Senzel could start for Reds in 2019
Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell said that it is "very possible" that prospect Nick Senzel will be the starting center fielder.
Senzel has never played in the outfield, but the Reds are confident he can make the transition. "Having never seen him on the field, my first impression was, 'This guy can really move. He's an athlete. This is more than possible,'" Bell told reporters. Senzel may have to wait until mid-to-late April to make his MLB debut due to service time rules, but it shouldn't be long before the 23-year-old becomes an everyday player for Cincinnati.
Senzel slashed .310/.378/.509 in 44 games (193 plate appearances) at Triple-A Louisville in 2018 before suffering a season-ending finger injury in June.
