4) Drew Sutton-3b/utility
--could play multiple positions and gives us a respectable bat at the 25th spot.

just a thought for organizational depth
Reds signed Corky again. I'm pretty confident he's the veteran catcher stashed at Louisville.
I'm fine stashing some OF depth. Seems like we don't have much readily available in the minors if someone goes down. Same with utility.
Walt already said they have enough pitching depth, and I agree. If Chapman fails at starting, they have Leake. If one of those remaining 5 go down, I'd rather see Cingrani or Corcino against major league pitching and having Price coach them up.
