    Still no news on Yorman. I guess we'll probably have to wait until Monday for Baseball America to announce something because we know the Reds don't have any writers who even have a clue about Yorman turning 16 today.

    Faye is probably trying to find out all he can about Yrmon.

    I'm getting concerned that there has been no news. I hope we see something tomorrow.

    I'm guessing the Reds won't get Yorman now. It's probably going to take 2+ million to sign him and they've already spent a bunch on Alonso and others. I hope I'm wrong but I have a bad feeling.

    Nah, it's an unlimited supply of cash, right! But seriously my gut says one has nothing to do with the other.

    Not only did the Reds get a Yonder.....but they got a Yorman also

    REDS SIGN PRIZED VENEZUELAN OUTFIELDER

    The Reds have announced the signing of premier Venezuelan CF Yorman Rodriguez. The high profile, 5-tool player turned 16 years old today.

    "Yorman is one of the premier position players in Latin America," said Reds Senior Director of Scouting Chris Buckley. "In Rodriguez and Juan Duran, we've signed 2 of the top players available in that market and consider both to be first-round draft picks. This organization has made great progress in international scouting."

    Duran, a highly-touted Dominican outfielder also 16 years old, was signed February 27.

    The Reds signed 34 of this year's 50 June draft picks, including 30th rounder RHP Juan Sulbaran and 35th rounder LHP Matthew Fairel, both of whom were signed today.

    ...Wow. Instead of Reds games I wish my cable company would just play the games of the minor league teams. Will Yorman go to the DSL or just workout in Sarasota?

    most latin american players signed internationally start out in the dsl. if shipped to sarasota he would be playing against men 3-5 years older than he. just my take could be wrong however.

    I meant just be in Sarasota at the training facility working out, not playing for the GCL or SaraReds.

    I think that about sums it up. The minors are now reloaded with young talent, and hopefully the pipeline will continue to produce.
