Over the winter Salmon was dropped off the 40 man roster with an invite to the big league camp. When the time came to send him to the minors, the reds dealt him to KC for a ptbnl.
This last winter Gil was also removed from the 40 man roster and quickly re-upped with the organization. I can't imagine anybody is going to promise him a major league roster positition, but a slot on somebodies 40 man isn't out of the question.
I know his previous history, but after the last two years, I really want to see what kind of player he is.
