lifted from shawn's blog who lifted it from the reds....
"It goes: pitchers Matt Belisle, Bill Bray, Jared Burton, Todd Coffey, Rheal Cormier, Jon Coutlangus, Phil Dumatrait, Aaron Harang, Bobby Livingston, Kyle Lohse, Gary Majewski, Calvin Medlock, Eric Milton, Elizardo Ramirez, Kirk Saarloos, Brad Salmon, Brian Shackelford, and Mike Stanton.
Infield: Edwin Encarnacion, Jerry Gil, Alex Gonzalez, Jeff Keppinger, Joey Votto.
Outfield: Jeff Conine, Chris Denorfia, Chris Dickerson, Adam Dunn, Junior Griffey, Josh Hamilton, Norris Hopper."
I'm a bit shocked to see Ramirez on there. When he was sent down last year, did they manage to retroactivly claim is was injury rehab? The must have because that would have been his third season splitting time between the majors and minors. I was also fairly confident that Dumatrait has been on the 40 man roster in the minors for three years, but I've either been mistaken or some of that time must be considered injury rehab.
Of course the rule v guys are on there, but the reds can't send them down without either sending them back or offereing some other compensation.
It seems like Shackleford has been up and down forever, but it really has only been the last two years.
Anyway...it's an intersting list to start spring training with. The 25 man roster is far less jammed than I thought it was going to be.
