The 3rd round pick out of Louisiana-Lafayette comes in as our 24th best prospect. The former Ragin' Cajun had a solid start to his professional career in Billings, before struggling with his cup of coffee in Daytona. The 22 year-old infielder will hope to use his solid speed, defense, and plate approach to take some steps forward in 2016.

Most Worrisome Fact: Power significantly dropped in AA
Alias(es): Brean Burrito, Seth Matthews Band
Selected in the 8th round of the 2012 draft out of Arizona, Seth showed a lot of promise in his first two seasons in the Reds organization. He crushed the ball in Dayton and Bakersfield, enough so to get the call to AA Pensacola for the second half of 2014. He saw his power significantly drop in 2014 and, while there was a slight improvement, things didn't go much better in 2015 where he posted a .247/.352/.360 line. His plate approach has stayed consistent throughout his minor league career, posting a solid OBP, K%, and BB% at every stop he has made. He also brings solid defense to the hot corner with above average range and a good arm. He turns 25 this season, so his clock is ticking for him to make some serious improvements this year.
