    Younger guys

    I made a list of 65 position guys who were predominantly AA or lower last year. Some of them (like Soto), I'm familiar with, but others, not so much. I''ve divided them into Corner Infielders, Middle Infieldersd, Outfir\elders and Catchers. I'd appreciate it if some of you that follow the farm a little closer than I would pick some of the guys listed, make some notes on what you like/dislike about them, potential ceilings and possible big league arrival date. TIA.

    Re: Younger guys

    I believe Will Lenyz[sic] is actually Matt Lentz, former safety for the UK Wildcats. The Reds signed him following a tryout. He's very athletic but very raw. Casey[sic] Weems is actually Chase Weems, who was released earlier this year. You misspelled a few other names, too. Cris(tobal) Rodriguez was released this year, too. Shane Carlson was placed on the restricted list, which probably means that he's retired Nick O'Shea has mostly been playing as a catcher. I made an attempt to forecast where each player will be assigned next year. It's somewhat of a rough draft since I haven't edited much since the recent trades, but it at least gives you an idea, some links to their b-r pages, and their career stats.

    Carlson retired last year and Carlos Mendez is a free agent.

    Re: Younger guys

    Seems to me that the real scrum--the area where guys blend together--is in the outfield group, the likes of Dayne Read, Drew Poulk, Stephen Hunt, Brennan May, Bryson Smith, Spencer Dickinson and Steve Selsky. My sense is that Read, Smith and Selsky might have a slight edge on the rest, but it's only a hunch. If anybody can separate those guys . . .

    Also, Jefry Sierra started out as an infielder, but has recently played mostly center field, and played it extremely well, according to all accounts. He's a speedy feller.

    Sierra has a really good arm as well. It's not Denis Phipps good but its probably only just a tick below, if that much
