2019 Fantasy Outlook
It took $2 million to get Siani to rescind his commitment to Virginia, almost four times the recommended slot value of the 109th overall pick in last year's draft. The early returns on the investment were strong for Cincinnati, with Siani handling himself just fine offensively (98 wRC+) in the Appy League. He just needs to be close to average from the left side of the plate in order to make it long term, as his defense in center field and throwing arm are both plus. If he can hit enough to maintain a starting role in the major leagues, Siani should be able to swipe 20-plus bases pretty easily. He's a long ways off at 19 and power is not a big part of this equation, though there's always hope that Great American Ball Park will help in that regard. Either way, Siani has the skills base to be worth rostering in deeper dynasty leagues in 2019. Read Past Outlooks

Falls to Reds in fourth round
OFCincinnati Reds  A
June 5, 2018
The Reds have selected Siani with the 109th overall pick in the 2018 first-year player draft.
ANALYSIS
A borderline first-round talent, Siani may have fallen due to signability concerns, but the Reds likely saved some cash with their second-round selection, so they should be able to lure Siani away from his commitment to Virginia. Unfortunately for our purposes, Siani's top tools are on the defensive side of the ball, as he has the potential to be a plus defender with a plus arm in center field. Offensively, Siani has average power from the left side, but his hit tool currently projects to be fringe-average. As a plus runner, it's possible he is able to develop into a Kevin Kiermaier-level fantasy asset, but that's probably his ceiling.
