Reds Analysis

Despite being one of the most youthful teams in baseball, the Reds boast a feared lineup in 2024.

Last year, Cincinnati featured a lineup with an average age of 26.8 years old. Surprisingly, that is the Reds' youngest since 1971 in that metric. With rising stars like Jonathan India, Elly De La Cruz and Matt McLain in the infield, Cincy must be respected amongst the Senior Circuit.

In 2023, the Reds sported a top-10 OPS at .747. That was good enough for second-best in the NL Central despite finishing just above .500 (82-80). Looking forward, Cincinnati is listed with +430 odds in FanDuel Sportsbook's divisional market. Projected third, are the Reds really that far behind the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs?

Cincy-great Joey Votto has expressed a desire to continue playing despite the Reds declining his option. At the time of authorship, Votto remains a free agent -- Spencer Steer or Nick Martini will likely replace him at first base.

In the outfield, TJ Friedl is another explosive player under the age of 29. Like fellow teammates De La Cruz and McLain, Friedl will be on 30-30 watch for 2024. Naturally, it helps that this group plays home games at one of the most hitter-friendly venues in MLB. Per Baseball Savant, Great American Ball Park on the Ohio River has produced the third-highest Park Factor score (107) dating back to 2021.

Contrarily, playing in a hitter-friendly stadium offers disadvantages, as well. Last season, Reds pitching collectively compiled a 4.82 ERA (sixth-worst in the Majors). From there, only the Washington Nationals and Colorado Rockies surrendered more home runs than Cincinnati (222) in 2023.

Southpaw hurler Andrew Abbottwas the Reds' most consistent starter on the mound last year. Abbott will return for the coming campaign, but his 3.62 BB/9 from a season ago had him struggling at times.

Ultimately, if Cincy can keep opponents' scoring down in 2024, they will be a dangerous club to match up with. Of course, youth paradoxically supplies a lack of experience. Either way, we can see elements of another "Big Red Machine" forming with this lineup.

If you like this group in Cincinnati to end the franchise's 34-year title drought, the Reds are currently priced with 55-to-1 odds in the World Series market at FanDuel Sportsbook.
