Right now the Reds have two young players at both positions that are under control for the next several years.
Drew Stubbs is under control until 2015 and Zach Cozart is under control until 2017 I think....
For Billy to move to the majors one of these two players will need to be moved. For the Reds its a nice situation to have.... They have to decide which one they like more.
The other wildcard is Philips he is 31 right now, Billy's Eta is around 14 to 15 depending on how he advances which means Brandon will be 33 or 34, will he slow down and be looked at for the hot corner?
