Nick Longhi

Nick Longhi
Cincinnati Reds
Outfielder/First baseman
Born: August 16, 1995 (age 23)
Springfield, Massachusetts
Bats: Right Throws: Left

Nicholas Edward Longhi [lon'-ne] (born August 16, 1995) is a corner outfielder and first baseman who plays in the Cincinnati Reds Minor League system. Listed at 6' 2", 205 lb., he bats right-handed and throws left-handed.[28]

Longhi was originally selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 30th round of the 2013 MLB Draft out of Venice High School in Florida, where he helped the Venice Indians win the Florida 7A State Championship and finish No. 2 in the final national rankings in 2013. By the time Longhi was a senior at Venice, joined the Rawlings first team All-American and played in almost every major tournament for Perfect Game. Longhi came to terms on a contract calling for a reported over-slot bonus of $450,000, the fourth-highest bonus handed out by the Sox, with the organization buying him out of a commitment to Louisiana State University.[29]

Longhi was rated by Baseball America at No. 8 as one of the best pure hitters in the 2013 high school draft class.[30] He is a rare right-handed hitting, left handed throwing outfielder who possesses a strong arm, delivering 91-93 mph fastballs when he was a two-way player in high school. Versatile enough to also play at first base, he is also a solid-average defender with strong instincts, soft hands and good footwork.[28]

Longhi debuted with the GCL Red Sox late in 2013, playing for them 16 games before joining the Lowell Spinners in 2014. He then gained a promotion to the Greenville Drive in 2015.[28]

In 2015 Longhi played mostly right field for a Drive squad, and he showed adequate actions and plenty of arm in the field.[31] Longhi looked to be in noticeably better shape than past seasons, looking stronger, quicker, and more agile in the field and on the basepaths. He appeared more mature, even though he was young for his 2013 draft class and turned 20 years old in August. As a result, his .281/.338/.403 line with seven home runs, 22 doubles, three triples and 62 RBI was significant, because he was facing pitchers two or more years older than him who could throw 90 mph regularly and get up to 95 mph.[28][32]

Longhi opened 2016 with High-A Salem Red Sox, appearing at first base in 99 games and in right field in 25 games, though in some games he appeared at both positions. He slashed .282/.349/.343 in 471 at bats and led Salem with 77 RBIs and 40 doubles while collecting a second-best 133 hits behind Rafael Devers (142), as his 40 doubles were second-best in the Carolina League and his RBI totals ranked him fifth.[33] Longhi topped the Red Sox minor league system in RBIs and doubles, was fifth in hits, and tied for third in games played.[34]

Longhi began 2017 with the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs. He was traded to the Cincinnati Reds for international signing bonus pool space on July 2.[35] Cincinnati assigned him to the Double-A Pensacola Blue Wahoos and he finished the season there. In 69 total games between the two teams, he batted .266 with seven home runs and 40 RBIs.[36]

He pitched 2016 with both the Billings Mustangs and Dayton Dragons, compiling a combined 3-3 record, 5.19 ERA, and 1.43 WHIP in 15 games started between both teams, and spent 2017 back with Dayton,[40][41] posting a 9-8 record and 3.38 ERA in 25 games (24 starts).[42] He started 2018 with the Daytona Tortugas[43] and was promoted to the Pensacola Blue Wahoos during the season. In 26 combined starts between the two clubs, he was 10-7 with a 3.08 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.[44]

Billings Mustangs

The Billings Mustangs are a minor league baseball team based in Billings, Montana. The Mustangs are the Pioneer League Rookie affiliate of the Major League Cincinnati Reds. The team has been a part of the Pioneer League since 1948 with a five-year gap between 1964 and 1968, and has been affiliated with the Reds since 1974 (after an affiliation with the Kansas City Royals). Along with the Elizabethton Twins, the Mustangs affiliation with the Reds is the longest-running among all rookie-level teams. The team was officially established on November 4, 1947.

The Mustangs play at Dehler Park, named after Jon Dehler, a Billings businessman who bought the naming right to the field in 2007. Prior to the 2008 season the Mustangs played at Cobb Field (named after Bob Cobb who was responsible for bringing professional baseball to the city of Billings). Cobb Field was demolished in September 2007 to make way for the new park.

The Mustangs won three consecutive Pioneer League titles from 1992 and 1994, then won another in 1997. In 2003, Billings swept the Provo Angels in the Championship Series, winning two games to none. Provo had tied the league record for wins that year with 54. Billings, the last team to qualify for the postseason, won Game 1 at Provo 8-5 in 11 innings, then, Billings won 3-0 on a no-hitter by James Paduch to win the Championship in front of a sold-out Cobb Field in Billings. The game was a classic pitchers duel between two of the top pitchers in the league (Provo's being 2003 Pioneer League Pitcher of the Year Abel Moreno). In 2006, Chris Valaika set a Pioneer League record with a 32-game hitting streak during the Mustangs 51-win campaign.

Many Major League stars have begun their pro careers in Billings. These include George Brett, Reggie Sanders, Paul O'Neill, Trevor Hoffman, Keith Lockhart, Danny Tartabull, Ben Broussard, Scott Sullivan, Aaron Boone, Adam Dunn, Austin Kearns, and B. J. Ryan.

After years of award-winning work in the front office, Assistant General Manager Gary Roller was promoted to General Manager for the 2005 season. Roller took over for long time GM and Mustangs Hall-of-Famer Bob Wilson. Matt Bender, who formerly handled the duties of Official Scorer, took over the vacated Assistant General Manager position.

Dehler Park (and before at Cobb Field) is renowned in the Pioneer League for the "Beer Batter" tradition. Every game the Mustangs Beer Boosters designate one player as the "Beer Batter." If that player gets a hit, attendees can buy four beers for $10. Many eager buyers stand at the stairs anticipating a hit and the oncoming rush of people.

The Billings Mustangs changed their logo for the 2006 season. The 2007 season was their last at Cobb Field and the Mustangs begin the 2008 season at Dehler Park. On September 11, 2014, the Mustangs defeated the Orem Owlz for their first Pioneer League Championship since the 2003 season.

List of Cincinnati Reds first-round draft picks

The Cincinnati Reds are a Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise based in Cincinnati, Ohio. They play in the National League Central division. Officially known as the "First-Year Player Draft", the Rule 4 Draft is MLB's primary mechanism for assigning players from high schools, colleges, and other amateur clubs to its franchises. The draft order is determined based on the previous season's standings, with the team possessing the worst record receiving the first pick. In addition, teams which lost free agents in the previous off-season may be awarded compensatory or supplementary picks. Since the establishment of the draft in 1965, the Reds have selected 58 players in the first round.

Of those 58 players, 28 have been pitchers, the most of any position; 22 of these were right-handed, while 6 were left-handed. The Reds have also selected 12 outfielders, eight shortstops, four catchers, four third basemen and two first basemen. They have never selected a second baseman in the initial round of the draft. The franchise has drafted eleven players from colleges or high schools in California, while another eight were drafted out of Texas. The only first-round pick out of the Reds' home state of Ohio was Barry Larkin, a native of Cincinnati.One of these picks has been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame; Barry Larkin, drafted in 1985, was elected to the Hall in his third year of eligibility in 2012. Five of these picks have won a World Series championship with the Reds. Don Gullett & Gary Nolan won two consecutive Series with the Reds, 1975 and 1976, and Gullett won again in 1977 as a member of the New York Yankees. Three of the Reds first-round picks participated in the team's 1990 championship: Larkin, Scott Scudder, and Jack Armstrong. In addition to eventually reaching the Hall of Fame, Larkin was awarded the Roberto Clemente Award in 1993, the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award in 1994, and named the National League Most Valuable Player in 1995.Cincinnati has made ten selections in the supplemental round of the draft, but has never held the first overall pick. They have also had two compensatory picks since the first draft in 1965. These additional picks are provided when a team loses a particularly valuable free agent in the previous off-season, or, more recently, if a team fails to sign a draft pick from the previous year. The Reds have failed to sign their first-round pick twice. Mike Miley, selected in 1971, chose to attend college at Louisiana State University; he would later be drafted by the California Angels in 1974. The Reds did not receive a compensatory pick for failing to sign Miley. Jeremy Sowers, the Reds' 2001 choice, decided to attend Vanderbilt University, and was selected in the first round of the 2004 draft by the Cleveland Indians. Sowers' MLB debut came in 2006 against Cincinnati. For failing to sign Sowers, the Reds received the 40th pick in the 2002 draft, which they used to select Mark Schramek.
