As spring training approaches, the Cincinnati Reds are eager to prove the doubters wrong and show that last year’s down season was just a product of an injury-riddled team.

Cincinnati went 76-86 last season, which put the team in fourth place in the National League Central. It was a disappointing result for a team that entered the season with postseason aspirations.

This offseason, the Reds dealt away some key players. Mat Latos, Alfredo Simon and Chris Heisey are all gone. Those players will not be easily replaced, but with key players having time to get healthy this offseason, the team has a chance to be better in 2015 than it was in 2014.

With the season drawing closer, it’s time to see how this year’s club compares to last year’s version. Keep reading to see how each unit compares to last year’s.
