View Full Version : Reds roster/ when drafted

This is based on the trivia question tonight and the discussion in the ORG game thread, but here is the base 25 man roster and when they were drafted:

1st round - Bailey, Leake, Stubbs, Bruce, Mesoraco
2d round - Votto, Rolen, Cozart, Frazier, Phillips, Ludwick, Broxton
3d round - Arroyo
4th round - Lecure
6th round - Marshall
11th round - Latos
13th Round - Ondrusek
17th round - Heisey
Undrafted free agents - Hanigan, Chapman, Cairo, Valdez, Cueto, Arredondo, Simon

When you look at it all together, it says if you don't go in the first two rounds of the draft, your future is pretty darn bleak, unless you are from central/south America.

That really surprises me... With so many rounds, and so many stories of failed early picks, I really expected a lot more players from the lower rounds.

Also shows how important it is for the organization to develop its own talent and supplement it with some nice moves for players like Phillips.
