Entering the 2019 season, Long was considered by MLB Pipeline and Baseball America as the seventh-best prospect in the Reds farm system.  The 23-year-old had spent six seasons with Cincinnati since being drafted in the 12th round of the 2013 draft, reaching as high as Double-A.

Since making his professional debut, he has appeared in 457 minor league games, 168 of them at the Double-A level.  In 1,635 career minor league at-bats he owns a .272/.353/.435 slash line with 86 doubles, 15 triples, and 50 home runs with 211 RBIs.
