View Full Version : An Early Look at the 2011 Organizatonal Depth Chart

I'm currently shuttling between Boston and New York, and if out of nothing other than boredom, I thought I'd take an early stab at the organizational depth chart as of Opening Day 2011. Of course, it goes without saying that a lot can and will change between now and then, making some of this moot. For instance, Alonso and Mez could get traded for Cliff Lee, Lotzkar could throw out his arm again and Frazier could get promoted to the big club. But, barring major change, the following is my best guess at what we could see come next year:


REDS Louisville Carolina Lynchburg Dayton
SP1 Leake Wood/Chapman/Maloney Boxberger Sulbaran Cline
SP2 Cueto Klinker Fairel Lotzkar Tuttle
SP3 Volquez Carroll Hotchkiss J.Johnson Cisco/Corcino
SP4 Bailey Cochran Serrano Shunick/H'brandt Gerson/Guillon/Correa

CL Cordero Joseph/Valiquette Ware Arico O'Rear

C Hernanigan Mesoraco Coddington/Soto Grandal Barnhart
1B Votto Alonso Soto Richburg D'Anna
2B Phillips Valaika Puckett/Greene Lohman Arias
SS Cozanish Negron Rojas Gregorious Hamilton
3B Rolen Sutton/Frazier Buchholz H.Rodriguez Vidal
LF Gomes Frazier/Alonso Greene/Puckett Satterwhite Duran
CF Stubbs Sappelt/Perez LaMarre Means Y.Rodriguez
RF Bruce Perez/Balentien Fellhauer Garton Silva

Bench OF Heisey Henry
Bench OF Dickerson Balentien/Perez
Bench IF/OF Francisco Dorn
Bench MI Cozanish Kahueilio
Bench C Hernanigan Denove/Castillo Fleury Weems Berset


I am assuming Francisco, Cozart, and two of Wood/Maloney/Chapman will be with the big club. Frazier and Alonso will be left to continue to work on their game in Louisville, mainly due to their early season slumps this year. LaMarre and Lohman will skip a level, LaMarre heading straight to Carolina and Lohman to Lynchburg, partly because I think they should be ready for the jump and partly due to positional redundancy with Andrew Means and Junior Arias/Billy Hamilton. Joseph should be ready to begin the season in Louisville, and Arico in Lynchburg. Some of the oft-injured pitchers like Lotzkar and Hildenbrandt are bumped up to Lynchburg as well (as they should be by that point.) Everyone else is assumed to be promoted a level, although I'm sure there will be a few guys who are left to repeat a level. Some of these guys could easily swap positions, like Lohman and H.Rodriguez as well aa Hamilton and Arias. Other than that, please feel free to comment.
