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.
    Agree. I'd add that Andy Phillips and Tyler Pelland should be let go or sent down to make room. Matt Belisle and Gary Majewski wll probably be non-tendered as well. That makes 4 more spots. Craig Tatum could also be on the bubble and Norris Hopper may not be a sure thing either.

    I think Tatum is closer to a sure thing that you think. The Reds' catching depth is weak anyway, but without Tatum, until they sign someone, the Reds have no one to catch at AAA without embarrassing themselves.

    NO way anybody drafts Tatum and no way he sticks if they do.

    I'd probably have to agree with that notion. I remember hearing how he didn't look ready for AAA at all when he got there. And that wasn't really all that long ago.

    I'm no Tatum fan, but there are many really bad catchers in the bigs (Reds had three last year), and Tatum's cheaper than many of them.

    Tatum is a good defender and I suppose I could see a scenario where some team with an established vet as the starter would let Tatum sit on the bench in a Chad Moeller role. With Hanigan looking like one catcher for the Reds, no way that Tatum will be the other. Since I think its doubtful that the Reds could get anything at all in trade it simply comes down to whether or not the Reds need to roster spot since Tatum is likely to be no use to the major league team. I'd rather have an open spot to gamble in rule 5 on a Tatum equivalent that plays SS or a young pitcher with stuff.

    Tatum is already on the 40 man. To take him off requires that he pass through waivers. That allows a team to claim him for only $10K if that team has a 40 man spot. He wouldn't have to play in majors. So he's more attractive than a Rule 5 claim.

    Reds don't have a lot of talent that's worth protecting this year, IMO. That'll change next season. I suspect that Tatum's spot on 40 man is probably safe, for now.

    I hope they protect him. A good defensive catcher has worth, and Tatum's bat may yet improve a bit. One of Krivsky's underappreciated moves was placing Hanigan on the 40-man -- I can't remember a single post supporting that transaction.

    Bobby Livingston was removed from the 40 man roster, so that opens up another slot for one of our prospects.

    Today is the deadline. Should see some roster moves.

    From Cots:


    Rule 5 Draft
    The Rule 5 draft is held each December at the Winter Meetings, and it consists of a Major League portion and a minor league portion. By November 20, each club must set its 40-man roster and submit reserve lists for all major and minor-league levels (See Minor League Rosters). Between November 20 and the Rule 5 draft, a club may add Major League free agents to its 40-man roster but may not add any player from its minor league reserve lists.
    Last day for Gary Majewski, Andy Phillips, Matt Belisle and Norris Hopper?

    I figure that the Reds would have named roster earlier in the week, but that there's been an outside chance of a trade

    Yep. So we can replace them with the likes of Juan Castro.
