Position players often arrive at Spring Training early and get to work. Reds top prospect Nick Senzel arrived very early. With the exception of the four-day team caravan in late January, Senzel has been at the Reds' complex in Arizona for about a month. Ranked the club's No. 1 prospect and No. 7 in all of baseball by MLB Pipeline, the third baseman has been working diligently at second base and shortstop. "A lot of opportunities and a lot of new stuff at different positions," Senzel said. "I'm going to go out early, get some work in, get acquainted to the new spots I haven't played and that's it." Senzel, 22, has exclusively been a third baseman since he was taken with No. 2 overall pick by the Reds in the 2016 Draft, but he was told he would be getting looks at the middle-infield and corner-outfield positions during his first big league camp. In recent days, Senzel has been doing less outfield work and more drills with infield coach Freddie Benavides on his technique. He's accepted the challenge of getting up to speed in the middle infield.
