Re: Reds minor leaguers who became free agents
I'd have liked to see us hang on to Asadoorian as well as Perez and EZ, but there are only so many minor league opportunities and you've got to make some judgments about who needs the spots most and how fast people can come along. I suspect it was a combination of those things in Asadoorian's case. That said, Krivsky has been remarkably willing to either lose or pass on potential relief pitching: Medlock, Guevara, F. Hernandez (taken after us in the Rule 5 draft by Oakland), Asadoorian. He should be held accountable for this if the judgments turn out to be bad.
