    Who will the Reds put on the 40-man roster?

    Right now it looks like the candidates are Carlos Fisher, Sam LeCure, Ramon Geronimo, Shaun Cumberland, Michael Griffin, Robert Manuel, and Sean Henry with Justin Mallett and James Avery as other possibilities. Right now it looks like the Reds have six open spots on the roster and maybe more if they drop Majewski. So, who do you think the Reds will or should protect?

    For me, Carlos Fisher, Sam Lecure, Robert Manuel, and Sean Henry are the locks. I like Cumberland and Geronimo but I don't think they would stick on a 25-man roster all season long.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    My fault. I forgot about that thread. Pedro Viola should be protected too.

    You gotta make sure there's room for the Andy Phillips and Jolbert Cabrera types though.

    You gotta create two spots for Andy - one for him and one for his dangerous bat.

    does anybody know what is going on with Tyler Pelland? Is he going to be kept on the 40 man roster?

    This is an interesting question, but I'm trying to be sure I have the whole roster of candidates in mind. Is it Fisher, Maloney, Cumberland, Henry, Lecure, Manuel, Geronimo, Viola, Griffin, Pelland, Mallett, Avery? Those 12? For how many spots? 6 at present?

    Bailey, Pelland, Tatum, and Thompson along with Alonso were the minor leaguers who were recalled at the end of the season (meaning they were kept on the 40 man). Livingston was outrighted and then became a six year free agent so he is gone, at least for the moment. Viola would not be among the candidates. He has only played three years and would not have to be protected. There are some other players that will be up for the Rule V draft if not protected but would be extremely unlikely candidates, such as Eymann, Rafael Gonzalez, Terrell Young.

    Edit: Ok, this was addressed in detail just before I posted. Sorry.

    Who the heck is Gustavo Omana?

    Nevermind. I found his player page...it seems he only played for the VSL Reds last season.

    Valiquette was drafted at 17, he will not be eligible for rule V drafting untill next year.

    Thanks for the clarification, Camisadelgolf, Reds of 72, OBM, and RedsUp. For me, in hierarchical order: 1. Fisher, 2. Maloney, 3. Manuel, 4. Henry, 5. LeCure, 6. Cumberland. I hope we can protect all of them, especially the first 5. I think any of them could get taken and probably will be able to stick on the right 25 man roster.

    That means that he gets an extra year, and 2004-2008 = five years of professional baseball. For the rule five draft, the year a player was drafted and signed count towards his eligibility.

    And redsof72 is absolutely right about Viola. I thought he was signed just before the 2005 season for some reason.

    Omana is probably no longer with the organization (where did he play in 2008?), but I never saw anywhere that he was released. The same thing goes for Jesus Ruiz and Raul De La Cruz.
