View Full Version : What's up with all these players from no where?!?
03-16-2010, 05:52 PM
And why aren't they listed with the non-roster invites? Players like "Kris Negron" and "Chris McMurray," who are, according to C.Trent, available for today's game. I like to track these things, and this makes it very difficult. :angry:. List them-- SOMEWHERE! If they are listed somewhere, please direct me there. Also, in a pic, I saw someone with a #90 jersey and the name "Cannon," but as this was on Jamie Ramsey's blog, it could have been a doctored photo somehow joking about John "The Loose Cannon" Fay.
Thanks for any help.

That would be Minor League Pitcher Forest Cannon:

Don't have #s for them, but according to C.Trent, Kris Negron is a 2B who we got in the Gonzo trade with Boston, and Chris McMurray is a catcher. Mr. Cannon was in Billings last year. Billings! Rookie league! What is he doing at Big-league spring training?? Some sorta contract thing? Turns out McMurray's still in high-A, and Negron isn't doing to great between high-A and AA.

The picture with Cannon was from Minor League Camp

Ohhh. That clears it up a little. Still, why aren't Negron and McMurray listed on the Reds NRIs?

The minor leagues have their own spring training and its right there with the big club so its pretty common to use those guys when they need some bodies.
