    Anyone feel like taking an early stab on the most likely 5 AAA and 5 AA Starters?

    It's always in flux, and nobody is holding anyone to their opinion here, but in April and May, who are the most likely 5 AA and AAA Starters?

    FYI

    Ryan Lillie came over from the Marlins for Cash Considerations (not to be confused with Cash Case) in early October. I put this here on the off chance you saw the list above and had to Google Ryan Lilllie (not that I would have to do such a thing.)

    Not to quibble too much, but he did not cost the Reds a dime. Cincinnati sent the Marlins the baseball equivalent to bitcoins - international cap space.

    A couple of wildcards are Wennington Romero and Andrew Jordan. These were 20 year old kids making starts in A+. Jordan made 8 starts at A+ late in the year and probably repeats there. Romero made 24 stats at A+ throwing 130 innings. I think he's overlooked on prospect lists because his results aren't awesome, but at his age to already have a full season in A+ would seem to indicate that the Reds have plans for him. I could see things clicking with him at some point. He might be in AA in 2019. He turns 21 in January. Not sure.

    I'd gladly give you some dimes for some bitcoins.

    My understanding with Romero is that he doesn't have much of a fastball. He's got off-speed offerings and polish but when a pitcher can't bring the heat they'll get doubted at every level...

    Yeah. His K/9 really dropped in A+ and the last report I saw him said his FB was fringey. He's said to have a plus curve and plus command. I wonder if his FB might uptick with some maturity. If not, he may be a decent late game match-up guy. Still seems a better bet to be a big leaguer than Okey or Longhi who do get prospect love.
