Rudie Verougstraete (Reds)

Hey Cincinnati Reds fans! I’m Rudie Verougstraete, the Reds correspondent here at Prospects1500! I’ll be bringing you the latest news and insights on prospects in the Reds minor league system, including top 50 rankings at various points throughout the season.

I’ve been an avid baseball fan now for 3 years, active in fantasy baseball, and attend Nationals games (my “home team” as I live in Richmond, Virginia just 2 hours from D.C.) as well as Richmond Flying Squirrels (Giants AA affiliate) games as often as I can, and I’m now in my third year doing fantasy baseball as well. Fun fact: in my inaugural year of fantasy baseball, my first draft pick was Wilson Ramos. Yes, you read that right. A catcher. No worries, that was three years ago and I’ve learned a lot more since then, but my wife still enjoys ribbing me about it.

If you have any questions or comments/feedback on my rankings or other posts here, feel free to shoot me an email at You can also follow me on Twitter at @reds_prospects.

  1. Hi Rudie,
    Welcome. Look forward to your insights. I’m in a deep keeper league. Picked up TJ Friedl in a trade. Curious about your thoughts on him. Any under-the-radar guys who’ve caught your eye? Have you seen India yet?
