Ashley has never been a starter in Triple-A and it is not often that teams sign six-year free agents with the plan of increasing their profile. Corky can be expected to give them 60-80 games but he is now a 37 year old catcher and injuries become a risk. I think LaMarre makes the Triple-A club. Hessman is also there. I am not sold on the fact that B-Ham starts in Triple-A. It might happen, but if I was betting, I would say he starts in Pensacola. He has two months in AA. Has WJ addressed that this winter?
Louisville maybe something like this:
C: Miller and TBA or Ashley
LF: Robinson/F Perez
And Pensacola could look like this:
C: Barnhart and Ashley or Fleury
LF: B. Smith
Some of those older guys I have with PCola could go to Triple-A if there is an opening, such as Samson, Marquez Smith.
I think you're right on the mark with this lineup for AAA. I also see the Reds announced today their non-roster players they invited to Spring Training this year!
