Re: Arizona Fall League Rosters Announced
The Reds have generally treated the AFL as a way to shine up the club's marginal prospects as tradebait. This season seems to be no exception.
None of these guys, except maybe Roenicke, are being sent to Arizona because they're somehow promising and missed a significant portion of the season due to injuries.
None are what you'd call a sure-fire top-ten prospect in the organization. It's not meant to be a crack on these players, all of whom I follow and root for, but they're playing for "shine" value.
