    Reds cut Daryle Ward

    John Fay reports:

    The Reds cut six players Monday:

    --Daryle Ward and LHP Aaron Fultz released.

    --RHP Ramon Ramirez and INF Danny Richar were optioned to Louisville.

    --LHP Ron Flores and RHP Jeff Kennard were re-assigned to the minor league camp.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like Johnny Gomes will be your backup 1B and LF, and things aren't looking good for Jacque Jones. The 25-man roster is clearing up.

    The only other interesting position to watch will be utility infielder, with Jeff Keppinger and Adam Rosales battling for the spot. I have a hunch Kep will be traded.

    Agreed. Like Gomes a lot more than Ward or Jones... Although I'd take Ward over Jones, what's he still doing in camp?

    I refer to that as "The Dusty Effect".

    Expect Jones to go before the week's out. I'm sure Dusty will want the final week of spring training to be with his opening day roster.

    Re: Reds cut Daryle Ward

    Where has Ramon Ramirez been all spring?

    Did he even pitch in a game with the Reds?

    I know he was in the WBC, but even when he was here he didn't make an appearance

    Wasn't he supposed to be one of the guys in the running for the 5th spot?

    Ramon Ramirez: 5.1 innings, 4 hits, 3 runs, 5 walks, a hit batter

    Re: Reds cut Daryle Ward

    Well who are the 5 bench players now?

    Hairston
    Hannigan
    Gomes
    ???
    ???

    If Ward and Jones are both out, does that mean it's Kepp and Nix? No left handed bat off the bench???

    It's good that the cuts are difficult. It means this team has depth in the minors. The pitching is really going to be tough. Some of these lower profile guys, like Herrera, have pitched good enough to make the team. Yikes.
    Who's on first?

    I heard Herrera might replace Bray as the lefty in the pen.

    Don't know if that says more about how good Herrera is, or how bad Bray has been.

    Methinks it's more the latter...

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    What about

    Hannigan
    Hairston
    Keppinger
    Gomes
    McDonald

    McDonald has certainly earned a spot. Dusty likes #1 draft pick potential. He has speed.

    Nix is a lefty and Ward getting cut means hes probably your 5th outfielder and left handed bat off the bench. Nix's athleticism and Gomes ability to play first base won out over Ward.

    This looks best to me. (Maybe Rosales with Keppinger traded). I don't see how McDonald doesn't make the cut. At the start I thought Hopper would be in it, but, he didn't use his trademark bunt much at all to get on base. (Small Ball).

    Ward was cut firstince he has a chance to catch on with another major league team. This gives him the time to do that.
    Jones probably agreedt go to AAA if he doesn't make it, so it's no big deal to keep around. I seriously doubt Jones makes the opening day roster.

    Nix is left handed.

    Wilkin Castillo is a possibility.
