The Arizona League Reds, formerly the Gulf Coast League (GCL) Reds, are a minor league baseball team in Goodyear, Arizona. They are a Rookie-level team in the Arizona League that begin play as a Cincinnati Reds affiliate in the summer of 2010. The AZL Reds play home games at the Goodyear Ballpark. The team is composed mainly of players who are in their first year of professional baseball either as draftees or non-drafted free agents from the United States, Canada, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and other countries.

With the announcement of the big league club moving their spring training headquarters from Sarasota, Florida to Goodyear, Arizona beginning in 2010, the former GCL Reds headed to the Arizona League for the 2010 season. The GCL Reds played home games in Sarasota, Florida, at Ed Smith Stadium.
