How big would it be if Darryl Thompson was healthy?
It seems like he's been around forever, but he's still just 25 years old. Apparently his shoulder feels fine now. He's on the 40 man roster.
If he could have a good start at AAA, the Reds starting rotation would be 9 deep - Volquez, Arroyo, Cueto, Wood, Bailey, Leake, Lecure, Maloney and Thompson. That's just obscene. An embarrassment of wealth.
You'd have to think that at some point some of these guys are going to be traded. Gives Jocketty a lot of options if Thompson can stay healthy and pitch well.
