    A college SS who can swing the bat and would move quickly, possibly debuting as early as 2016. Imagine a 2016 lineup of:

    CF Hamilton
    LF Winker/Ervin
    1B Votto
    2B Phillips
    RF Bruce
    3B Frazier
    C Mesoraco
    SS Turner

    SP Latos/Cueto
    SP Stephenson
    SP Chapman
    SP Cingrani
    SP Contreras/Travieso (although Travieso likely won't be ready until 2017 or 2018)

    CL Lorenzen
    I seriously belive that the final ship of the Chapman-to-the-rotationflotilla sailed this past spring - not tht that is bad thing - I doubt Arolis would be omre than a pedestrian starter after taking into account the loss of velocity he would see after converting to a starting role.

    I also think that at least two, if not three of Latos, Cueto, Bailey and Leake will still be in the Cincy rotation come 2016 along with Cingrani and Stephenson. I aso believe somone like Moscot (among others) may push for an open spot if there is one.
