Re: Rank the minor leaguers
I think most clubs picking in the rule five are looking for someone who can produce right away. Let's face it, anyone picked has to be on the 25 man roster starting the year.
There is no way the Reds will leave a left-handed starter off the roster or trade one. Wood will be protected, and he probably will be in the rotation next year. the only reason he wsn't called up was that he is only 22 I believe, and he had already pitched over 170 innings this year.
Ondrusek is going to Arizona. Can anyone see a trade on the horizon. He is being showcased. Anyone that can close at AAA can relieve in the majors. If he isn't traded, he will be on the 40 man roster. The Reds won't give him away.
Kennard and Del Rosario are question marks as are Valaika and Heisey. Are these guys even rule V eligible?
