Q: Jeff from Jerome. Idaho asks:
Any ideas as to where Juan Duran will begin and end the season this year? Will he get any time in Short-season summer league?

A: Ben Badler: He could see some time in the GCL this year (turns out there was even more confusion regarding his unusual signing, and that he's not restricted to Billings this year). He's got an elbow problem right now, so he can't throw much anyway. Whether he plays this year isn't that important though for his long-term projection.

Anyone know how serious this is? That's obviously not encouraging.

Not very.

The Reds knew he had an elbow injury when they signed him so that tells you it's not serious. They're not going to spend 2 million dollars on a kid if he's seriously injured.

19 year old OFer in Cincinnati in a few years?

Kidding folks, kidding.

If he isn't in Cincy by the trading deadline of 2009, then this will just be flat out wasted money.

Does the GCL use a DH?

Yes they do use a DH in the GCL.
