    40 Man Analysis:

    We keep hearing opinions about who/what we need yet to fill the roster and compete the upcoming season. Also it's nice to know what we have available in a possible deal for those parts we need. It's a little easier when you are looking directly at the names/positions already in place.

    Per MLB.Com (Presumed Starters in Red and relievers in Green) Also prediction of where each player might start the season.

    40-Man Roster
    Pitchers: B/T
    61 Bronson Arroyo R/R MLB
    31 Matt Belisle R/R MLB
    45 Bill Bray L/L MLB
    -- Jared Burton R/R MLB
    56 Todd Coffey R/R MLB
    36 Rheal Cormier L/L MLB
    65 Jon Coutlangus L/L AAA
    66 Phil Dumatrait R/L AAA
    39 Aaron Harang R/R MLB
    28 Kyle Lohse R/R MLB
    38 Gary Majewski R/R MLB
    -- Calvin Medlock R/R AAA
    22 Eric Milton L/L MLB
    54 Elizardo Ramirez L/R AAA
    -- Brad Salmon L/R AAA
    37 Brian Shackelford L/L AAA
    -- David Shafer R/R AAA
    29 Mike Stanton L/L MLB
    25 David Weathers R/R MLB
    Catchers: B/T
    -- Chad Moeller R/R AAA
    -- Miguel Perez R/R AAA
    26 David Ross R/R MLB
    17 Javier Valentin S/R MLB
    Infielders: B/T
    9 Juan Castro R/R MLB
    12 Edwin Encarnacion R/R MLB
    -- Jerry Gil R/R 6-3 195 10/14/82 AAA
    2 Alex Gonzalez R/R MLB
    57 Brendan Harris R/R AAA
    21 Scott Hatteberg L/R MLB
    62 Ray Olmedo S/R AAA
    4 Brandon Phillips R/R MLB
    -- Joey Votto L/R AAA
    Outfielders: B/T
    16 Bubba Crosby L/L MLB
    19 Chris Denorfia R/R MLB
    -- Chris Dickerson L/L AAA
    44 Adam Dunn L/R MLB
    6 Ryan Freel R/R MLB
    3 Ken Griffey L/L MLB
    -- Josh Hamilton L/L 6-4 205 05/21/81 MLB
    30 Norris Hopper R/R AAA
    I left Hamilton's and Gil's #'s on the board just to get an idea of Gil's size and I am wondering to myself of this former SS could move to the OF or 1B? Just a side note there. Also I believe #41 on the list, Watson is no longer a part of the roster at all. I believe I have the 25 man now with Weathers, although not finalized it shouldn't be long.

    Re: 40 Man Analysis:

    Thanks. Not sure how options fit into this. Can they really send Lizard, Harris, Olmedo and Shack down? I'd probably cut loose Crosby to keep one and I'd really like to see Salmon make the team somehow.

    Shouldn't have signed all those old guys in the pen.

    I'm pulling for Salmon as well... still oblivious as to why we signed both Stanton and Weathers.

    I suspect that either the Reds are looking to deal Cormier ( or Majik ) OR they want Belisle to be the 5th starter. Possibly both. If we carry 7 relievers again then in either scenario there is room for Salmon or some other minor league pitcher to make the staff as the 7th reliever.

    Re: 40 Man Analysis:

    Weathers has not fully been signed yet so he isn't on the 40 either.

    Now it's a done deal and Claussen is off of it, DFA! I will update it. I also deleted Watson, I do believe he was cut.
