MLB in 2023: Ranking All 30 Aces

27. Hunter Greene — Cincinnati Reds

The flamethrower out of Southern California will be given the chance to develop into the ace of this team in Cincinnati. When looking into Green’s analytical breakdown, you realize he’s the hardest-thrower on average in baseball. He throws more 100+ mph pitches than any other pitcher in the game today. For Greene, it’s all about refining his stuff — and improving his secondary pitches. At only 23, the LA native is still not close to touching his upside. He went 5-13 with a 4.44 ERA last year. We have to think he’ll be far more comfortable in 2023 knowing that he’ll be ‘the man’ in Cincinnati.
