Re: Reds 40 Man Roster as of 8/1/09. What players need protection in Rule V draft?
Add in Hernandez and Gonzalez as guys that the Reds will remove (ie. not pick of their options) for next year. So there are the following spots:
Volquez (60 Day DL)
Wells (not retained for next year)
Hernandez (not retained for next year)
Gonzalez (not retained for next year)
Richar (60 Day DL)
Castillo (60 Day DL)
That's 6 spots, if I'm reading things correctly, no?
