    Reds sign Will Lentz off of a tryout. It may well never come to much, but this is an interesting FA signing. Lentz was a safety for the UK football team until concussions forced him to take a medical scholarship. Will played quite a bit at safety. He's VERY hard-nosed, an outstanding athlete and a really good kid. He was last listed as 6-3/220 on the UK FB roster. He came to UK as a QB with a very good arm, but a shoulder problem before his freshman year moved him to safety.

    Any idea which team Wright will be sent to or how much his signing bonus was?

    No idea on signing bonus, but I imagine he'll either be sent to Billings or Bakersfield, given that Torreyes is tearing it up in Dayton.

    Thanks for the info, New Fever. I wonder if they already had a deal in place with Rosa, but the Commish's office delayed the announcement.

    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Especially since corner outfielders are the biggest need across the entire system.

    Rosa has been playing 3B though. Of course, Bryson is listed as an infielder on the Reds.com draft page too....
