    Reds Arizona Fall League roster

    http://cincinnati.reds.mlb.com/NASAp...=.jsp&c_id=cin

    Why do I not see names like Homer Bailey, Joey Votto, Drew Stubbs, Jay Bruce or Johnny Cueto on the Reds Arizona Fall League roster? Isn't this league a place for teams to develop their top prospects in Class A and Double-A, and wouldn't you consider those five guys the Reds' top prospects? Yet not one of them is going to play. What gives? -- G.R. Gibbs

    Actually, the majority of players that participate in the AFL are from the Double-A and Triple-A levels. That eliminates younger guys like Stubbs, Cueto and Bruce. As for Bailey, he already reached his innings threshold for the year and was shut down for the year after Double-A Chattanooga's season ended.

    In case you're curious, seven Reds players will be with the Phoenix Desert Dogs of the AFL -- including pitchers Phil Dumatrait (Triple-A Louisville), Jon Coutlangus, Tyler Pelland and Calvin Medlock, infielder Drew Anderson and outfielders Javon Moran and Cody Strait (all Chattanooga).

    Should this thread be moved to "Down on the Farm"?

    I think that is a good idea about the down on the farm. I wasn't sure with the mail box question and since was with the AFL.
    Mods can you move the thread to Down on the farm.

    Maybe... but I probably wouldn't have seen it down there and I find it of interest.

    Bailey and Cueto need the offseason, well, off. This is true of most pitchers, hitters could probably stand to gain the most from the league, but Stubbs has just finished a VERY long season, Bruce is a year removed from high school, and what does Votto have to prove in the AFL after dominating the equivalent level AA?

    my 2 cents.
