Re: 2011 40-man?
I don't know how, but somehow I omitted Matt Klinker, who will surely be added to the 40-man roster. That means up to four of the following players will be extended, have an option picked up, offered arbitration, or added to the roster:
*Dallas Buck - has a horrible injury history
@Jared Burton - was starting to return to form before getting injured; will most likely be non-tendered
*Scott Carroll - has done well against younger competition despite inability to miss bats
#Jerry Gil - converted shortstop issues more walks than strikeouts but has nasty stuff
*Jordan Hotchkiss - has really flown under the radar but consistently gets good results
*Jeff Jeffords - power arm will soon be 26 and has pitched only one game above high-A
*Ben Jukich - nice curveball and nothing else; was taken in last year's rule five draft but returned
*Joe Krebs - lefty with great numbers but lacks velocity on fastball
#Arthur Rhodes - how much longer can he last?
*Lee Tabor - lefty reliever with decent numbers but no skills that stand out
#Daryl Thompson - has pitched well but not often; shoulder problems flared up and had trouble dealing with heat
#Wilkin Castillo - can play any position, but his bat doesn't justify using him anywhere except catcher, where he's less than great
#Ramon Hernandez - how much of a raise will he get?
@Corky Miller - will be non-tendered, but will he be retained?
%Orlando Cabrera - his numbers don't justify picking up the option, but do his intangibles?
#Miguel Cairo - having a career year, but is it worth rewarding?
*Jake Kahaulelio - may have a future as a utilityman
*Kris Negron - good on-base skills and speed from a shortstop, but most scouts aren't all that impressed
*Miguel Rojas - superb defense, but doesn't have near the bat to match
#Wladimir Balentien - has really come on lately; probably deserves a spot on a Major League roster
*Danny Dorn - excellent AAA numbers, but his defense limits him
%Jonny Gomes - possibly the Reds' worst position player
@Laynce Nix - having a career year, but he may not be worth the raise in arbitration
* - eligible for the rule five draft
# - free agent
@ - eligible for arbitration
% - club option
