Re: Reds 40 Man Roster as of 8/1/09. What players need protection in Rule V draft?
Here is another guy that I did not realize was Rule V eligible until yesterday: Enerio Del Rosario. He is now throwing 90-93, always had great command, is now dropping down to a low-three quarter delivery, and the Reds are taking him seriously.
Part of the reason for his rapid promotion all the way to Louisville was to see what he would do at higher levels BECAUSE HE IS RULE V ELIGIBLE.
They will have some tough decisions.
When asked who the three pitchers in the organization were that had made the biggest jumps in 2009, a key member of the Player Development staff said: Travis Wood (obvious one), Logan Ondrusek, and Enerio Del Rosario.
