    40-man goes to 39

    PerMarc:

    SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- The Reds have added right-hander Brad Salmon to the 40-man roster.

    That gives them 39 guys on the roster, not including five still officially on the 60-day DL -- Claussen, Guardado, Mercker, Ramirez and Wilson
    Anybody with info on this guy? age? velocity?

    The walks concern me a bit, but those are some pretty impressive numbers overall, especially the strikeouts.

    I'm pretty embarrassed I didn't know more about this guy during the season. How did he fly under the radar -- especially with this year's major league bullpen in such disarray?

    It looks like Jason Johnson was also added to the 40 man roster.

    Re: 40-man goes to 39

    A WHIP at about 1.1. I really like that. The Ks are awesome. I'd be more excited with a higher GO/AO ratio but he seems to keep the ball in the ballpark. Seems like a guy we probably could have used with the big club this year.

    Re: 40-man goes to 39

    I have a question that's really going to make me look dumb, but here goes...

    Why add players to the 40-man roster at this time? I'm guessing there's some good reason, I just don't know what it is.

    I would think you just leave everything as is until late in Spring Training.

    Re: 40-man goes to 39

    I heard he's realy good swimming upstream.

    TB, the Rule 5 draft is coming up and whomever is not on the 40 man roster and has to be protected, could be drafted by another team. A guy like Homer wouldn't qualify since he doesn't need to be protected for another year or so but a guy like Joey Votto does.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    To protect them from Rule V draft selection.

    I'm glad to see that he is from the Atlantic side of the US instead of the Pacific. I would hate to see what would happen when he reached his destination if he was from the Pacific side.

    Re: 40-man goes to 39

    Thanks guys... I knew there had to be a good reason.

    But now let me take it one step further.... are you telling me that the Rule 5 draft allows ANY UNPROTECTED PLAYER not on the 40-man to be plucked at will off any minor league roster? If so, I'm apalled!

    Oh, and one more... what's the definition of "unprotected"?

    Is Votto on the 40-man?

    He was already on it, just like all of the other FA's to be. They will be gone soon enough.
