While the 2022 season was a forgettable one for the Cincinnati Reds, one of the highlights of the season actually came in the form of a trade. Cincinnati swapped ace Luis Castillo for three of the Seattle Mariners' top five prospects.

One of the prospects in that deal, infielder Noelvi Marte, is playing his way through the Arizona Fall League and made headlines on Tuesday night.

Now the No. 2 ranked prospect in Cincinnati's farm system, Marte mashed a 461-foot home run during the Glendale Desert Dogs' matchup vs. the Saguaros. Check it out below.

A quick listen to the crowd's reaction tells us everything we need to know. This ball was blasted.

Marte checks in as the No. 17 prospect in baseball, in a top-100 list dominated by the Reds. Five Cincinnati players check in on the list including No. 14 Elly De La Cruz, No. 52 Edwin Arroyo, No. 60 Cam Collier and No. 73 Matt McLain.
