Re: Who will the Reds put on the 40-man roster?
Bailey, Pelland, Tatum, and Thompson along with Alonso were the minor leaguers who were recalled at the end of the season (meaning they were kept on the 40 man). Livingston was outrighted and then became a six year free agent so he is gone, at least for the moment. Viola would not be among the candidates. He has only played three years and would not have to be protected. There are some other players that will be up for the Rule V draft if not protected but would be extremely unlikely candidates, such as Eymann, Rafael Gonzalez, Terrell Young.
Edit: Ok, this was addressed in detail just before I posted. Sorry.
