Re: Maybe the Reds should promote...
The Reds are not going to rush to promote any of the prospects in the minors until they are forced to. While they would, most likely, be an improvement over the dreck at the big league level, promoting them now starts the tolling of major league service--they will then be eligible for arbitration sooner, and if they are successful, they will be more expensive at an earlier date.
While I may or may not agree with this, I believe this is the reason they haven't promoted any of the prospects at this point.
Of course, we all remember when they did promote a bunch of youngsters a couple years back very quickly and most of them flamed out quickly and aren't even in the Reds Farm System or big leagues anymore, so service time isn't an issue with the likes of Reith, Davis or even Wagner for that matter.
The Future Is Now!
