Re: 2006 Draft signings thread
Lutz is a reliever with great stuff and has a chance to move quickly. Arneson is a big lefty at 6'5" with plus velocity. Signing both of those guys would be huge in terms of improving the depth of the pitching.
I wouldn't say 2 more mid-round guys is a significant boost to the depth in the system, but it's always good to add talent. I think the Reds' idea with these guys is to assess their performance in summer league ball -- and then make a run at them, or not.
