For posts on all of the 2014 Cincinnati Reds draft picks, you can click here. I am limiting posts on the front page to try and keep the site from crashing.

The first thing that I want to note is that if the site doesn't look right, it is because the other format, plus all of the traffic is causing too much stress on the server and causing it to crash, so I have reverted to the most simplistic view of the site to try and keep it running through the day. If things look normal, pay no attention to this message.

Today there are 30 rounds worth of picks. I will be doing three posts for the day, each with 10 picks so that things don't get overly long and overbearing all on one post. Things should go rather quickly today with so many picks, so there may not be much interaction with me today on twitter or in the comments section as I figure I will be trying to track down information as things go for the entire time between picks today, where as yesterday there was about 45 minutes between picks, today there will probably be about 15 minutes between each pick.

Cincinnati Reds 11th Round Selection: C Mitch Trees, High School (IL)

Scouting Report

The 6' 2" and 195 lb catcher shows good catch and throw skills. He has good athleticism behind the plate and has a good arm. Offensively he is raw at the plate where he struggles to make contact at times and doesn't have much current power, though he could grow into some moving forward. His swing is smooth and he has some bat speed.

Cincinnati Reds 12th Round Selection: 3B Montrell Marshall, High School (GA)

Scouting Report

The 6' 5" and 215 lb cousin of Brandon Phillips was listed as a third baseman, though he played shortstop in high school. He has some bat speed to work with and with his size and strength he shows some power now and more power to grow into. He is a good runner for his size and an average runner overall. Scouts apparently rave about his makeup.

Cincinnati Reds 13th Round Selection: RHP Zac Correll, High School (MA)

Scouting Report

The 6' 6" and 230 lb right hander has plenty of size working for him that could give him plenty of room to gain velocity moving forward. He currently throws in the 88-90 range and can touch 93 at times. He will mix in a breaking ball as well as a change up. He is still considered a bit raw as a pitcher.

Cincinnati Reds 14th Round Selection: RHP Jake Ehret, UCLA

Scouting Report

The 6' 3" and 200 lb right hander was a sophomore this past season, but he redshirted his first year. The reliever threw just 20 innings, but showed off quality stuff. He topped out in the mid 90's while working in the 90-93 MPH range. He throws a potentially plus slider in the mid 80's as well. He has struggled with his control over his 23.1 innings while at UCLA, walking 12 batters.

Cincinnati Reds 15th Round Selection: OF Jimmy Pickens, Michigan State

Scouting Report

The 6' 0" and 220 lb outfielder has above-average speed to work with and it helped him steal 22 bases in the 2014 season with Michigan State. He is an old junior, already 22-years-old, but he could return to school if he chooses. He was drafted out of high school by the Tigers in the 41st round (which no longer exists) back in 2011.

Cincinnati Reds 16th Round Selection: C Garrett Boulware, Clemson

Scouting Report

The 6' 1" and 195 lb catcher has been the starter for Clemson the last two seasons after getting little playing time his freshman year. He has power potential to grow into despite his home run totals in college.

Cincinnati Reds 17th Round Selection: LHP Jacob Moody, Memphis

Scouting Report

The 5' 9" and 180 lb left hander is a bit undersized and has hardly pitched in his time with Memphis, never topping 10.0 innings in a given season with the Tigers. He struggles with control, having walked 33 batters in 21.1 innings pitched. He shows plus velocity from the left side though, topping out in the mid 90's with his fastball. He mixes in a curveball that is below-average right now but shows promise.

Cincinnati Reds 18th Round Selection: OF Roderick Bynum, High School (AK)

Scouting Report

The 6' 1" and 185 lb outfielder from Alaska is considered to be one of the best baseball prospects from the state in a long time. He has plus speed to work with, which should help him stay in center field for the long haul. He has below-average power potential, but his good bat speed and approach could allow him to hit for a solid average in the future. Considered to be a raw, but very good athlete.

Cincinnati Reds 19th Round Selection: RHP Isaac Anderson, College of Southern Idaho

Scouting Report

The 6' 0" and 190 lb right hander was selected last year by the Royals in the 34th round but didn't sign. He had not pitched until he gave it a shot in college, so he is still very raw at the position. He throws anywhere from 88-94 MPH and shows a feel for a breaking ball.

Cincinnati Reds 20th Round Selection: RHP Conor Krauss, Seton Hall

Scouting Report

The 6' 5" and 205 lb right handed reliever shows plenty of arm strength, reaching 96 MPH with his fastball, while working in the 91-93 MPH range. His slider is his secondary pitch that he goes to, but it's a below-average offering right now that could become an average pitch with more consistency. Control has been a big problem for him as he has walked nearly as many batters as innings pitched in his career at Seton Hall. He struggles to repeat his mechanics.

    Montrell Marshall- SS/3B 6’5 athlete. Brandon Phillip’s cousin. I wanted him yesterday on Day 2. Great pick.

    The Jacob Moody pick is confusing, guess they see something. Didn’t pitch much and got rocked when he did.
