I also would think Travis Wood would be on there if he were to be eligible, although I don't know how many innings one has to throw to be eligble for the list.
SL - We will probably not see a whole lot here outside of Cueto with maybes from Rosales or Roenicke (if elgible).
IL - Votto, Bruce, Bailey are locks. Matt Maloney is a maybe?
It will be interesting to see where things come out though.
Starters -- Bailey, Cueto, and possibly Maloney (at AA) are the only starters I'd expect to see. BA doesn't usually reward numbers like Watsons' at High-A, or even Thompson's, which are a bit better. Can't see them going with Wood this year, but who knows?
Relievers -- At the AA level, the Reds have real strength in the bullpen -- Roenicke, Pelland (since promoted), Viola, Guevera (not the type for BA). Perhaps one or two of them get mention at AA, or perhaps on High-A list. They should. Roenicke was BA's top Florida State League reliever on its best tools list.
Positions -- Combining all remaining levels, the only position players with a shot would seem to be Votto and Bruce (locks if eligible) and possibly Dorn. Sleeper -- Miguel Perez hit very well after injury.
