And No. 1 prospect Robert Stephenson should follow Bailey as the team’s next homegrown frontline starter.
One sign of the organization’s waning farm talent: a .426 winning percentage for its domestic minor league affiliates, worst in baseball. Not one Reds’ domestic minor league team finished the season with a winning reord
My guess is that's a very weak sign. Organizations that are more aggressive about advancing players are going to win less, as are organizations that work on developing their players first and winning second. For example putting players in positions they aren't experienced at to see if they can adapt to them, or demand players work on their weakest skills in games rather than just in practice (taking pitchers best pitches away to force them to develop their secondary offerings, forcing position players to bunt more, etc) so they can't coast on their strengths.
