Frazier, Cozart, Thompson, Horst. No Negron, No Carrol, no Avery.
Pass on Cairo. Deal Danny Rae for a PTBNL or DFA him. Sign Rhodes, and that leaves 7 spots.
Frazier, Cozart, Negron, Horst, Thompson, Hotchkiss and Carroll.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
The Reds added Zack Cozart, Todd Frazier, Kris Negron and Daryl Thompson to the 40-man roster today. They had to be added to be protected from the Rule 5 Draft.
Little bit surprising on Horst.
No real surprise. The arms at the top end of the minors are unremarkable.
I like them keeping some openings at this point.

When do they set the AAA and AA rosters prior to the Rule 5 draft?

Thanks - just curious who Reds put on AAA roster and made it costly for others to draft
