Milton Loo is not in camp due to family problems. That probably slates Valaika for Dayton, becuase it was originally thought that Loo would probably start at SS in Dayton and Valaika in Sarasota. My question about this all is, if Loo was around and you thought Valaika was good enough for Sarasota, why is it that since Loo isnt around, Valaika isnt good enough for Sarasota? Also, are the Reds the only team in baseball who starts their top college draft picks in low A?
Damiam Ursin (as previously reported by luvsbaseball) and Angel Colon were both among the releases the Reds made this year.
It is almost certain that Stubbs is starting in Dayton as well as most of the other Billings guys.
