    He had to be added to the 40 man roster this year.

    Re: The dawn of Yorman Rodriguez?

    Would another team claim him if the Reds dropped him from the 40 man?

    Is there anyway to slow down the "he has to be in the majors in 2 years" factor?

    I think another team would have drafted him in the Rule 5 if the Reds didn't protect him.
    Now that he is in AA holding his own(small sample I know) a team like Miami or Houston, would have little to lose by taking a chance on him.

    I could be wrong, but I think the Reds will know by 2016 if he is ready for the big leagues full time or not.

    Every player matures different, but that time table allows 2 full seasons above AA to see what he has. If the light does turn on for him he could be ready by next season some time.

    A throwback topic! "Can the Reds rework Wily Mo Pena's contract?"
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Well Yorman after close to a 100 AB's has settled in at as a .250 hitter, but he isn't hitting for power and driving the ball. He still has a 1 to 3 balls to strikeout ratio which isn't too good either. Who ever he may be the youngest player in the league and hopefully he will improve upon his start to AA....

    20 years old. He's going to improve.

    well, sure he's likely going to improve, but he's already burning options. The question now is will he be good enough to justify a major league roster slot before the reds give up on him.

    Considering some of the guys we currently have taking up space on the 40 man, I think Yorman isn't going away anytime soon.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    A guy that is holding his own in AA at age 20 and has two more full season of eligibility in the minors.... I think at the very worst he will be good enough to justify a roster spot. He can play all outfield spots. He has plus speed. He has power in his bat. At worst he is a solid bench player unless he loses those skills.

    Assuming he uses an option in each year, he would have to stick to a MLB roster in 2016. This was his first option, so he gets 2014 and 2015 to still be optioned.

    Ok Doug explain this, Does he have to be on the Opening day roster and then be sent to AAA for more seasoning or does he have to stay up all year?
