    Reds minor leaguers who became free agents

    Via Baseball America

    Cincinnati Reds (14)
    Righthanders: Rick Asadoorian, Carlos Bohorquez, Dan Denham, Steven Kelly, Elizardo Ramirez, Dushan Ruzic
    Catchers: Jean Boscan, Miguel Perez
    First baseman: Jesse Gutierrez
    Shortstops: Jeff Bannon, Caonabo Cosme, Aaron Herr, Anderson Machado
    Outfielder: Marland Williams

    If they let Asadoorian or Perez get away, it will be a mistake in my opinion.

    I'd like to see Lizard stick around as well. He is still relatively young and coming off an injury plagued year.

    Don't tell us the Elizardo Ramirez era could be coming to an end in the Queen City!

    Whatever will we do without him on the team?!?!

    Watch him turn into a solid mid rotation guy somewhere else.

    He wasn't bad when healthy.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    I have no problem at all keeping Ramirez either. I think the other two guys could be picked up very quickly though if the Reds don't get them inked quickly.

    EZ and Perez should be gotten back. Both have a possible future, and I don't want that future to be with another team. Other than that there are no real big losses here. It wouldn't ruin the Reds to lose these guys. Major League talent should be their first target.

    I guess I'm not sure I understand the process here. Was the only way to avoid this to add all three to the 40 man roster? Wasn't EZ already on that? Seems a mistake to me to lose any of these three. I'm assuming the move is just to let this happen, renegotiate and re-sign[?]

    I'm assuming there is some period of time after season where Reds can still add them. I agree, Asaadorian and Perez should stay.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Are the Reds at risk at all of losing Carlos Guevara in the Minor League Rule 5 draft?

    Yes, they are (unless he's added to the 40-man roster).

    I'm pretty sure he will be added though. It would be stupid to let a talent like him go, when pitching is your top priority.

    I agree completely. Even if the Reds think he has no chance at being a successful MLB pitcher, he could at least be very valuable in a trade.

    Asadoorian has been nabbed by the Dodgers. Too bad, I liked what I saw of him his first full year as a pitcher.

    I don't understand why you invest time and money on a guy and then let him get away. I'd think you would have to consider his past season a success considering he competed fairly well in AA. Maybe it was just Asadoorian finding a better situation for himself, but it would have been nice if he had re-signed.
