Amidst the chaos of the Cincinnati Reds‘ fire sale, a glimmer of hope has emerged, even with the team clearly tanking and trying to rebuild.

Top pitching prospect Hunter Greene will be joining Cincinnati’s rotation and will be making his major league debut on April 10 when the Reds are at Truist Park taking on the defending champion Atlanta Braves.

Cincinnati’s top draft pick from 2017 is finally in the show and will get a chance to make some rare history for the Reds, as he is making his debut within the first four games of the regular season, something Amir Garrett did in 2017 and several other players in Reds’ history have done.

Rare Company

This is an interesting little piece of history, and one that most people would not be aware of.

It’s rare to have so many players make their debuts so early in the season, but the Reds have that rare distinction.

Amir Garrett and Rookie Davis were the last two Reds players to do it.

Garrett had quite a bit of success in his debut, throwing six shutout innings at Busch Stadium against the St. Louis Cardinals.

If that’s any indication, then Greene is in for a treat when he makes his much-anticipated MLB debut.

Again, how many teams have this rare distinction of this many players making their big-league debuts within the first four games of a season?

This piece of history dates all the way back to 1901.

Greene is now set to join this list of Reds’ players who have made their debut within the first four games of the regular season.

We’ll see if he has the same luck that Garrett did in his debut.
