I will be at this game. Is there a finalized list yet? Will Boxberger be the only Reds prospect?

It isn't finalized because guys may still be promoted, opening a spot for others.... but it looks like Boxberger will be the only Red there for now. Mesoraco would have made the team as well, but was promoted so he misses out. Kind of surprised that Puckett didn't make it.

Here are the back up 2B/INF guys compared to Puckett:


PA AB 2B 3B HR BA/OBP/SLG/OPS
Greg Milcat 153 132 8 0 1 .303/.391/.386/.777
Jon Gilmore 282 263 7 3 3 .327/.356/.411/.767
Cody Puckett 232 199 22 3 7 .276/.351/.523/.873

I wouldn't mind seeing Boxberger promoted to Double-A Carolina after the Carolina League All-Star Game. As of today, Boxberger has posted the following stats: 56.1 IP, 52 hits, 2 HR allowed, 17 BB/62 K, 1.54 GO/FO, 3.20 ERA, 2.68 BB/9, 9.79 K/9. Oh, and his BABIP against is .347.

Hes been pitching pretty well. Id like to see him promoted also. Maybe after a few more picks or something sign and get in place it could happen.
