    Re: Yasmani Grandal

    My guess on potential roster spot would be Danny Ray Herrera, Laynce Nix, or 60 Day DLing Springer.

    Re: Yasmani Grandal

    My guess is Harang to 60 Day DL. He still has like 28 days of rehab time available.

    Should see some type of announcement about what they did to clear a 40 man spot.

    Perhaps Grandal can progress similar to a healthy Alonso, they both had similar stats at Miami. I'm not as worried about his chances to make MLB.

    That will come tomorrow, from what I've seen on Twitter.

    Interesting that they can agree to terms, release the press release, and not instantly have to make a move. I guess its not finalized until the commissioner signs off on it.

    Yeah there is a window of opportunity to delay the move while it's going through the red tape.

    Re: Yasmani Grandal

    I'm glad they got the deal done, but not only has Grandal received more money than any other pick in the 1st round not named Harper (at least from what has been reported so far), but he gets a MLB deal too?? No other 1st round pick outside of Harper (again that has been reported) got that! I just don't understand why there was a need to cave on paying more than most other picks that went before Grandal AND giving him an MLB deal, hurting roster space, for someone who has not yet proven to be an "elite" talent.

    I'm pretty sure Taillon got much more than Grandal.

    Jameson Taillon and Manny Machado both signed for reportedly $5 million. Zack Lee, No. 28 pick of the Dodgers, signed for $5.25 million.

    But here's the more interesting thing:

    Pirates' second-rounder Stetson Allie signed for $2.4 million. Tigers' supplemental pick Nick Castellanos signed for $3.45 million.

    Re: Yasmani Grandal

    So how does the 4 year deal work? 2.99 over 4, then arb?

    The $2.99 million could be spread out over 5 years, potentially (I haven't seen the details yet).

    But it likely means this:

    * Prorated $30K for everyday he's active on a minor league roster this year
    * Beginning next year (and 2012 too), he'll make $65,000 in the minors
    * When he's on the 25-man roster, he'll make prorated $400,000

    At the end of the 4 years, the Reds can offer him a new guaranteed contract or simply "renew" him for league minimum (or what they believe to be a fair amount). If he's arbitration-eligible (which is unlikely), then he would be put up for Arbitration.

    I was just going off of what had been reported earlier. Still, that means the Reds paid Grandal as if he was the 5th best player in the draft, at least so far.

    And the number of picks that received an MLB contract as well was very small...probably less than 5 players total.
