In the past few days the Reds have added Yorman Rodriguez, Yonder Alonso, Juan Carlos Sulbaran, and Matt Fairel to the organization through the draft or as an International signing. They've also added Dallas Buck, Micah Owings, and Wilkin Castillo through trade in the last five days. That's is a great influx of young talent but if you go back to June it's even better as you add in Zach Stewart, Tyler Cline, Alex Buchholz, and others via the draft. They also added Junior Arias and other prospects via the July 2nd International signing period. Through trade they landed Danny Richar and Nick Massett. If you take it another step back to June of 2007 look at all the young talent acquired since then it's amazing. Juan Duran and Yen-Wen Kuo via International signing, Edinson Volquez and Matt Maloney via trade, and others like Devin Mesoraco, Todd Frazier, Neftali Soto, Kyle Lotzkar, Zach Cozart, Evan Hildenbrandt, Brandon Waring, Jeremy Horst, and Alexis Oliveras via the draft. That is very, very impressive in my eyes. Not only have the Reds drafted and traded well but they've become huge players in the International scene as well as Canada and Puerto Rico through the draft. It's nice to know that Castellini and co. understand the importance of signing International players. With this current F.O. there is no doubt in my mind this organization is heading in the right direction.
